He really is just my homie, whether I will be making music or not.” He has also named Eminem as an influence, stating: “I didn’t really understand the genius of Em until I was like 15, 16”.

Miller also had multiple tattoos of Lennon, including a tattoo of Lennon’s face and a tattoo of John Lennon’s song “Imagine”.
