Mac Miller Dead at 26 After Apparent Drug Overdose

Mac Miller died Friday (Sept. 7) of an apparent drug overdose. He was 26.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ that the platinum-selling rapper was found at around noon at his San Fernando Valley home and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Authorities were alerted by a male, who made a 911 call presumably from Mac’s home.

Miller was open about his battle with substance abuse throughout the years. In May, he was arrested for DUI and hit and run after crashing his Mercedes G-Wagon by wrapping it around a utility pole.

Mac released five studio albums throughout his career, starting with his 2011 debut Blue Slide Park. His most recent, Swimming, debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200. He was set to kick off a tour in support of the album in late October.

In the wake of his sudden passing, Miller’s peers took to social media to share their thoughts and prayers.

Not sure what to say… Rest Easy bro! You’re energy was bright n infectious! I appreciate your voice and your heart bro. You pulled up to my 1st appearance in Pittsburgh for my mixtape FF2 n we been cool since. We did a gang of shows together, had music together and had some great talks. I relate a lot to you because we had a similar path, repped our city’s n started coming up around the same time. Thank you for your voice and all you addressed from feeling good, love, feeling bad, mental health, anxiety, depression n just things a lot of us identify with. I’ve been off social media more because I haven’t been feeling social, but I looked and saw a DM on twitter from u last week n it’s hurting me I didn’t fucking log on and see it and hit you back! You’ll live forever, Love!
