Rapper dead at 26 of apparent overdose


'Praying for Mac's family and that he rest easy, ' he wrote. Unfortunately, Mac Miller reportedly passed away today from an apparent drug overdose and many of his former peers are reaching out to send their condolences.

According to reports by TMZ, the star was found at around noon at his San Fernando Valley home and was pronounced dead at the scene.

TMZ reports the rapper died on the afternoon September 7. Miller released three more full-length albums before his death, including Swimming, which was released on August 3.

"I just wanna go on tour", he tweeted on Thursday.

"Alright I'm seeing a bunch of people blaming [Ariana Grande] for Mac Miller dying! what's wrong with you people?". The rapper died on Friday at age 26. Great man. I loved him for real.

"I respect and adore him endlessly and am grateful to have him in my life in any form, at all times regardless of how our relationship changes or what the universe holds for each of us". It was his mixtapes that brought him to online fame between 2010 and 2011; he released his debut album Blue Slide Park in July 2011. He said he became addicted to "Purple Drank", a mix of codeine and promethazine, in 2012 and stopped drinking for the show.

In May, he was arrested after crashing his vehicle in the San Fernando Valley, with his blood alcohol level nearly twice the legal limit.

"Do I wish that every single thing I did when I was 19 wasn't a discussion?"

His post read: 'I don't know what to say Mac took me on my second tour ever. And I don't want just sadness either. "F-k, I'm gonna be on national TV, I'm a mess, I better put this cup away.' And everyone was like, "There's no way he's gonna be able to do it.' And I f-kin' stopped".
