Mac Miller Dead Aged 26


Rapper Mac Miller, who found fame early with his raucous, retro hip-hop but struggled with substance abuse and a painfully public breakup with pop star Ariana Grande, died Friday, officials said.

Mac Miller died after a suspected overdose, aged 26.

Obviously, Mac Miller's death is not Ariana Grande's fault.

"At one point weed didn't relax me from everything, it made me more paranoid about all the s**t happening", Miller said.

When reached by phone Friday afternoon, the Los Angeles County Coroner's office would not confirm Miller's death.

Rapper Mac Miller has died at the aged of just 26. 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.

Miller had previously been in a two-year relationship with Ariana Grande, but which ended reportedly due to his problems with drugs.

In an interview published just days before his death, Miller told NY magazine he was trying to tame his negative emotions. In its review, Pitchfork stated that Miller "explores his headspace with considerably more focus than Drake, Future, or Post Malone, artists who sometimes cut emotional corners in their rush to the next banger".

Meanwhile, Miller's family have now confirmed the rapper's death officially in a statement to Rolling Stone. Miller's latest record, "Swimming", was released in August. "I want to be able to have good days and bad days", he said.

Chancelor Bennet, better known as Chance The Rapper, said they were good friends and helped him to launch his career. "I was lost." This past May, the rapper was arrested for a DUI and hit and run after wrapping his auto around utility pole.

Grande, after a Twitter user appeared to blame her for the break-up, wrote on the social media platform in May that the relationship was "toxic" and she had "cared for him and tried to support his sobriety & prayed for his balance for years".

"My deepest prayers & condolences goes out to Mac's friends and family at this hard time. I really am. I know what actually happened in reality, and that's enough for me".
