Today we have lost Mac Miller.
According to a report from TMZ, the 26-year old rapper was found by law enforcement around noon today, September 7th, at his San Fernando Valley home. Sources close to TMZ says Miller was pronounced dead at the scene, suffering from an apparent overdose.
Miller was most recently dealing with his troubles with substance abuse after going through a public break up with Pop Singer Ariana Grande.
In a recent interview Miller told DJ Booth:
I really wouldn’t want just happiness And I don’t want just sadness either. I don’t want to be depressed. I want to be able to have good days and bad days … I can’t imagine not waking up sometimes and being like, ‘I don’t feel like doing shit.’ And then having days where you wake up and you feel on top of the world.
Mac released his Swimming album back in August and was expected to embark on a tour.
Join us in sending our condolences to Miller’s family and friends.
