MAC MILLER Found Dead At 26 Of Apparent Drug Overdose
American rapper Mac Miller has been found dead in his home in California. The 26-year-old hip-hop artist, real name, Malcolm James McCormick, died from an apparent drug overdose.
He and former girlfriend, superstar singer Ariana Grande, had gone through very public break-up earlier this year. The latter has since been engaged to comedian Pete Davidson while Miller was arrested in May for driving under the influence and hit-and-run.
Mac Miller gained popularity after topping US charts with his debut album, Blue Slide Park, in 2011. The record went to number one on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart, making it the first independently distributed debut album to top the chart since Tha Dogg Pound's 1995 album, Dogg Food.
He was already due to go on tour after releasing his latest record, Swimming, earlier this year.
