Rapper Mac Miller dead at 26: Report

Rapper Mac Miller died Friday of an apparent overdose. He was 26.

Miller was found dead inside his Studio City home around midday, according to the LA Times.

Less than 24 hours before his death, Miller tweeted details of his upcoming "Swimming" tour, noting, "I wish it started tomorrow." The tour was scheduled to begin October 27.

In a separate tweet, he told his 8.4 million followers, "I just wanna go on tour."

The Pittsburgh-born artist, born Malcolm James McCormick, released a slew of popular tracks since releasing his first single, "Knock Knock," in 2010. His newest and final album, "Swimming," was released August 3 of this year.

After Drake called himself "the best Jew in the rap game," Miller countered to say he's in fact the "coolest Jewish rapper."

Miller famously dated Ariana Grande for two years until the couple split in May 2018.

The two took the stage together at last year's One Love benefit concert, which raised money for Manchester after a terrorist attacked Grande's May 2017 concert.

Miller had spoken openly in the past about a longtime struggle with substance abuse. He said in 2012 that he'd become addicted to "purple drank," a version of cough syrup that combines promethazine and codeine.

“I was so f--ked up all the time; it was bad," Miller told Complex at the time. "My friends couldn’t even look at me the same. I was lost."
