Rapper Mac Miller dies at 26

Sheri SchwartzSep 08, 2018

Tributes have already begun pouring in from the music world, including from Mac's peers Chance The Rapper and J. Cole. Miller was reportedly found dead in his southern California home from a drug overdose.

He had allegedly wrecked his Mercedes-Benz G Class vehicle by slamming into a utility pole, and fled the scene of the crash. Just last month, the Los Angeles Attorney's Office officially charged the rapper with driving under the influence (DUI), stemming from a auto accident in May in the San Fernando Valley.

According to TMZ, Miller's substance abuse was one of the reasons Grande and the rapper ended their two-year relationship.

His most recent album Swimming also garnered positive reviews, reaching number three on the Billboard 200.

The American star was found to be twice the legal alcohol limit when he was arrested for drink driving back in May.

Miller told Rolling Stone that he used promethazine and cocaine often, specifically after the release of his 2012 debut album Blue Slide Park.

Miller was about to start a concert tour next month.

They wrote the usual "R.I.P.s" and 'I love yous'. But beyond helping me launch my career he was one of the sweetest guys I ever knew. "I have cared for him and tried to support his sobriety and prayed for his balance for years (and always will, of course)". Miller sold more than 100,000 copies of the woozy, moody album, which features appearances or production work from Diplo, Flying Lotus, Earl Sweatshirt, Jay Electronica and Action Bronson.

Trump took notice and fired off dozens of tweets about how many views the music video was racking up and claimed he should get royalties. "God knows, I came close - don't try this at home".

This is a breaking story and will be updated.
