The Pittsburgh Rapper Was 26-Years-Old
TMZ has reported that 26-year-old rapper Mac Miller has died.
"Mac was found Friday at around noon at his San Fernando Valley home and was pronounced dead at the scene, wrote TMZ, adding, "Authorities were alerted by a male friend who placed a 911 call from Mac's home."
Set to go on tour next month, Miller's track record of drug use and abuse finally ended in the worst possible way. According to
Us Weekly, "Miller has spoken candidly through the years about his battle with substance abuse." And as TMZ notes, "His 2014 mixtape, Faces, was almost autobiographical on the subject of drug use. There were also references to premature death." After breaking up with singer Ariana Grande, who called their relationship "toxic" (she's now engaged to actor/comedian Pete Davidson) and being arrested for two counts of DUI (and hit-and-run) earlier this year (his blood alcohol was twice the legal limit), Miller seems to have been on a dreadful downward spiral - despite his success - finally finding the ultimate rock bottom today.

As Us Weekly shared, "'I made a stupid mistake," he told Beats 1 host Zane Lowe on July 23. 'I'm a human being. Like, [I] drove home drunk. But it was the best thing that could have happened. I needed that. I needed to run into that light pole and literally, like, have the whole thing stop.'" Unfortunately, any desire to get clean and stay sober didn't end the way Miller had hoped.
Songs like "Small Worlds," "Self Care," "Donald Trump," and "Dang!" made Miller a standout, adored by fans far and wide who were surely looking forward to his upcoming tour. But according to TMZ, Miller struggled in the spotlight, telling Vulture, "He had enormous pressure growing up in the public eye."
More information about Mac Miller's untimely death is sure to emerge. Rest in peace Malcolm James McCormick.
WATCH: Billie Eilish Declares Your Opinion Of Her "Not My Responsibility" In Powerful New Short Film
The young star bears all in "NOT MY RESPONSIBILITY."
Break out pop star and five time Grammy-award-winner Billie Eilish is sick of your body shaming.
The 18-year-old just dropped a powerful new short film in which she slowly removes her clothes as we hear her voice hypnotically decry the media's obsession with her body. She says, "Some people hate what I wear. Some people praise it. Some people use it to shame others. Some people use it to shame me. But I feel you watching, always, and nothing I do goes unseen. So, whether I feel your stares, your disapproval, or your sigh of relief—if I lived by them, I'd never be able to move. Would you like me to be smaller? Weaker? Softer? Taller? Would you like me to be quiet? Do my shoulders provoke you? Does my chest? Am I my stomach, my hips?" Meanwhile, she strips to a black bikini in slow motion, eventually sinking into a pool of black viscous liquid and declaring your opinion "not my responsibility."
