Rapper Mac Miller Dead From Apparent Overdose

Rapper Mac Miller Dead From Apparent Overdose

Miller's body was found Friday at about noon at his San Fernando Valley home, law enforcement told TMZ.

According to TMZ, Mac Miller died this afternoon of an apparent drug overdose.

His family said in a statement that Miller died Friday but gave no further details. Miller later said that the criticism and resulting stress led to him developing an addiction to "purple drank", a combination of codeine and promethazine. He was involved in a DUI hit-and-run crash shortly after.

The hip hop artist is being mourned by many of his peers.

His latest album, "Swimming", was released in August.

After the incident, his ex Ariana Grande cryptically tweeted QUOTE, "Pls take care of yourself".

"I was just getting super fat, and I didn't wanna be on national TV and fat, so I stopped sippin" lean", he told Noisy.

Miller famously dated Ariana Grande for two years until the couple split in May 2018.

Born Malcolm McCormick in Pittsburgh, Miller had rapped openly about substance abuse in his music, particularly on his 2014 mixtape Faces and his second studio album Watching Movies with the Sound Off. "God knows, I came close - don't try this at home". About a month after their break up, Grande got engaged to Pete Davidson, a Saturday Night Live cast member.

Khelani posted: 'I WILL MISS YOU SO MUCH I F**KING LOVE YOU DUDE THE GREATEST'. "I will continue to pray from the bottom of my heart that he figures it all out and that any other woman in this position does as well", she said.

Rappers like J Cole and Chance the Rapper took to Twitter to wish Miller peace in his final resting place, while some fans posted about what an inspiration he was to them in life.
