Mac Miller dead at 26
Mac Miller found dead at home after apparent overdose.
“Malcolm McCormick, known and adored by fans as Mac Miller, has tragically passed away at the age of 26. He was a bright light in this world for his family, friends and fans. Thank you for your prayers. Please respect our privacy. There are no further details as to the cause of his death at this time.”
The family’s statement came shortly after Mac was discovered at his Los Angeles home on September 7.
The medical examiner stated;
“In the late morning of Sept. 7, Malcolm McCormick (DOB 1/19/92) was found unresponsive in his home located in the 11600 block of Valleycrest Drive in Studio City. Authorities were called and Miller was pronounced dead at the scene at 11:51 a.m. At this time, an autopsy is pending and a cause of death has not been determined.”
After the news broke, the world mourned the rapper sending their support and love to his family. Artists who worked with him, artists who knew him and even those who didn’t all posted their condolences along with the many many fans Mac had.
It was later revealed that the rapper passed away due a drug overdose. Mac Miller had always been vocal about his mental illness and battle with substance abuse. He discussed the topic during many interviews and on his last album, Swimming, where he even mentioned the public DUI from last May.
Mac had gone sober for a few years before he started drinking again, which eventually led to him and then girlfriend of two years, Ariana Grande, to break up.
Miller started releasing music when he was only 14 and gained popularity very fast as EZ Mac, which he later changed to Mac Miller before releasing his first studio album with Rostrum Records in 2010.
Mac Miller left behind a legacy that doesn’t really fit under one title and his music loved by fans worldwide will definitely keep him alive for many years to come.
