Pittsburgh rapper Mac Miller is reportedly dead at the age of 26. New reports claim the East Coast hip-hop artist died from a possible drug overdose.
According to reports, law enforcement discovered Mac’s body Friday (September 7) at his California home.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … Mac was found Friday at around noon at his San Fernando Valley home and was pronounced dead at the scene. We’re told authorities were alerted by a male who placed a 911 call, presumably from Mac’s home. Miller has had trouble recently with substance abuse … in the wake of his breakup with Ariana Grande.

In July, Mac came clean on his publicized split from pop superstar Ariana Grande.
“Life is stressful. So, of course there were stressful times. It’s not that unique. You know, like, I was in love with somebody. We were together for two years. We worked through good times, bad times, stress and everything else. And then it came to an end and we both moved on. And it’s that simple.” (Beats 1)
Miller also admitted he hadn’t kept up with the buzz behind Grande and her fiancé Pete Davidson‘s engagement.
“Like, I haven’t been on the Internet. People have assumed that I’m [like] ‘Are you OK? Is everything OK?'” Because I was about to drop [my new album]. It just all seemed kind of unimportant, the need to show people I was OK. Like, what is that? Where does that come from? Why? Why do we have this need to use social media and the internet?” (Beats 1)
A few weeks ago, Grande broke her silence on splitting from Mac.
