American rapper, Malcolm James McCormick, professionally known as Mac Miller has died at age 26 of an apparent overdose, TMZ reports.
He was reportedly found in his Los Angeles home around noon on Friday.
Mac’s recent album, Swimming, was just released on August 3.
Mac Miller was recently charged with a DUI after crashing his car into a power pole in Los Angeles this May. Shortly after the crash, ex-girlfriend Ariana Grande posted a statement about their former relationship, writing that she had “cared for him and tried to support his sobriety.”
His colleagues have taken to social media to mourn him.
Rest In Peace to the great soul Mac Miller

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.
