Mac Miller Dead at 26
TMZ is reporting that Mac Miller passed away Friday of an apparent overdose, law enforcement sources told TMZ that he was found in his San Fernando Valley home, after a friend placed a 911 call from the home.
Mac Miller has spoken publicly about his battle with substance abuse, and it was later reported to be the main factor in his break up with Ariana Grande.
The rapper was in the news back in May when he was arrested for a DUI and hit and run. He reportedly wrapped his G-Wagon around a pole and fled the scene.
Less than 12 hours prior to his death he posted a series of videos on Instagram. He was supposed to kick off his tour next month.

I dont know what to say Mac Miller took me on my second tour ever. But beyond helping me launch my career he was one of the sweetest guys I ever knew. Great man. I loved him for real. Im completely broken. God bless him.
