Active from 2-6 July 2017, the account sees Miller inhabit the persona of ‘Lars’: a wannabe Instagram influencer seeking to share his love of vaporisers with the world. The account, named @cloudywithachanceofawesome69, is listed as following only 27 accounts on Instagram, including the official pages for Monster Energy Drinks, WWE and actor Jason Statham.

The content uploaded by Miller primarily consists of videos styled on YouTube vloggers, offering facetious tips and tricks to maximise the vaping experience. His last post, captioned with the word “#yes”, shows an image of US congressman and e-cigarette advocate Duncan Hunter vaping during a committee meeting.

Whilst Lars had only attracted 50 followers as of 3 July, this number has shot up to over 78,000 in recent days, with the posts attracting thousands of likes. 

Miller passed away on 7 September, with a toxicology report revealing the cause of death as an accidental overdose of fentanyl and cocaine. Dev Hynes, who was both a friend and creative collaborator to Miller, recently teamed up with Yves Tumor and Ian Isiah to pay tribute to the rapper’s death with a remix of Smoke, taken from the 2018 album Negro Swan.
