Mac Miller, a celebrated American rapper, singer and producer who began his rise in the music industry in his late teens has died at the age of just 26 years after being found on Friday around noon (7th September 2018) in a bedroom at his San Fernando Valley home, and he was pronounced dead at the scene.
“He was a bright light in this world for his family, friends, and fans,” his family wrote in a statement sent to media.
It is reported that authorities were alerted by a male friend who placed a 911 call from Mac’s home. The emergency dispatch audio reveals first responders were called for a patient in cardiac arrest after a drug overdose.
Miller has battled substance and drug abuse issues for years … something that came up again in the wake of his breakup with Ariana Grande. The rapper wrecked his G-Wagon by wrapping it around a utility pole back in May and was arrested for DUI and hit and run. He fled the scene but cops say he later confessed at his home. He blew 2 times the legal limit.
After his arrest Ariana tweeted, “Pls take care of yourself” and was clearly concerned about substance abuse.
