US rapper Mac Miller found dead aged 26
September 8, 2018
US rapper Mac Miller has been found dead at his California home.
Reports say the 26-year-old, who was open about his substance abuse, died from an apparent overdose.
The rapper, whose real name was Malcolm James McCormick, rose to fame after topping US charts with his debut album in 2011.
He released his latest record, Swimming, earlier this year and was due to go on tour. Miller went through a well-publicised break-up with singer and girlfriend Ariana Grande earlier this year.
The pair, who met in 2012, collaborated on a number of songs and performed together at the One Love Manchester concert in 2017.
Charges were filed against the rapper last month after he was arrested in May for driving under the influence and hit and run.
Grande spoke out publicly about ending their “toxic relationship” after fans blamed her for his arrest.
