Mac Miller Dead at 26 After Drug Overdose

TMZ: Rapper Mac Miller dies of apparent drug overdose

His family said in a statement that Miller died Friday but gave no further details. Further details are now unclear.

InsideEdition.com has reached out to Miller's representative for comment.

Rapper Mac Miller has died of an apparent drug overdose, TMZ is reporting. An official for the Los Angeles Police Department told ET he hit a pole while he was driving at 12:50 a.m.in the San Fernando Valley in California.

Miller has fought a long battle with substance abuse for some time now.

He told Vulture, "I really wouldn't want just happiness".

He talked about his quest for sobriety in a 2016 Vogue profile, saying, "I'm just changing how I live life, my state of mind.When you first get sober you feel like a superhero". That's fine, that's good, that's life.

After his arrest in May, Grande tweeted, "Pls take care of yourself".

Hours before his death, Miller posted an Instagram story where a vinyl record is seen playing, featuring lyrics from his song So it Goes: "Well, everybody gather 'round, I'm still standing, sit down.And I know been out.So it goes, so it goes".

Miller had just released his fifth studio album, "Swimming", last month.

Miller's USA tour was due to commence in San Francisco on 27 October.

"NOOO! I do not wanna believe my brother is dead!"

In the video clips, the rapper - whose two-year relationship with Ariana ended in May - showed a turntable that played his track "So It Goes". I wish it started tomorrow. "Yeah. But am I a drug addict? No".

Celebrities have flocked to Twitter to express grief over Miller's passing.

"I was not happy and I was on lean very heavy", Miller added.

"He was one of the sweetest guys I ever knew, "the rapper wrote on Twitter".

The news of Mac Miller's death had barely broken Friday afternoon before an outpouring of mourning and condolences flooded social media from his fellow rappers and celebrities as well as fans alike. 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".
