Mac Miller, rapper and producer, dead at 26

TMZ: Rapper Mac Miller dies of apparent drug overdose

Miller's family recently issued a statement over the loss while sending thoughts to other members of his family, friends and fans.

The rapper whose real name was Malcolm James McCormick released five albums. Despite fleeing the scene, cops say he later confessed at his home and blew 2 times the legal limit. "I was lost." Miller released his fifth studio album, Swimming, on August 3.

According to reports, Miller had still been feeling the emotional impact of his breakup from longtime girlfriend Ariana Grande, as well as her subsequent whirlwind engagement to "SNL" star Pete Davidson shortly after they split.

A year later, his first album, "Blue Slide Park", debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart.

In his last post on Twitter, he told his almost 9million followers: "I just wanna go on tour".

"I was in love with somebody". "There was this time when I was the most Googled thing on the internet. Im completely broken. God bless him". "I am not a babysitter or a mother and no woman should feel that they need to be", she wrote on Twitter in response to a tweet blaming her for Miller's DUI. His more goofy songs included "Nikes on My Feet", "Kool Aid & Frozen Pizza" and "Knock Knock". He asked his fans not to vote for Trump, who was flirting with the idea of running for president then, and publicly supported the Black Lives Matter movement. His second album, Watching Movies With The Sound Off, came out in 2013.

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

"It was a lot of shutting out the rest of the world and finding the inspiration inside of myself", he told Noisey of that album's hard-fought creation, describing its dives into darkness as "healthy and cleansing".

Just weeks after Ariana Grande and Mac Miller's breakup, the rapper was charged with DUI after crashing his auto in Los Angeles, and quickly, many of his fans began to blame Grande for bailing on him when he needed her the most.

He released a single Smaller Worlds back in May, with lyrics: "I'm always sayin' I won't change but/I ain't the same/Everything is different/ I can't complain".

The Los Angeles Police Department told CNN that officers responded to a call for a death investigation at the 11600 block of Valleycrest Road just before noon local time.
