Rapper Mac Miller was found dead today of an apparent overdose, Anthony Rogers Presents has confirmed. He was 26.
He was reportedly found in his San Fernando Valley home. Further details are currently unclear.
Miller, whose real name is Malcolm James McCormick, had struggled with substance abuse in the past. Just last month, the Los Angeles Attorney’s Office officially charged the rapper with a DUI stemming from a car accident in May in the San Fernando Valley.
He had been open about his struggles previously, referencing drug abuse and death in an interview, “I’d rather be the corny white rapper than the drugged-out mess who can’t even get out of his house. Overdosing is just not cool. You don’t go down history bc you overdose. You just die”
