Fiona Apple has shared an emotional remembrance of Mac Miller, the rapper who passed away tragically last Friday at the age of 26. Watch it above via Pitchfork.


Apple recounts meeting Miller once "for a few hours" with a small group of people. "I really really really liked him, and I wanted to stay friends with him, but I never got his number," Apple says. Their discussion covered Miller's appreciation for Jon Brion, the producer and frequent Fiona Apple collaborator who ended up working on Swimming, Miller's final album.

"I wish I could have made music with him," Apple says near the video's end. "He was a really good soul, and he's still around, I hope."

Many artists and celebrities including Elton John and Childish Gambino have paid tribute to Miller since his death.
