Tributes Are Pouring In For Rapper Mac Miller, Dead At 26
Prominent musicians have taken to social media to express their shock and grief at the passing of rapper Mac Miller, who was found dead in his Los Angeles home on Friday at the age of just 26.
The cause of death has been reported as an overdose, although this has yet to be confirmed by the authorities. Miller had spoken openly about his substance abuse issues in the past, and was charged with drink driving in May after crashing his car into a power pole.
He released his fifth studio album, Swimming, last month.
I dont know what to say Mac Miller took me on my second tour ever. But beyond helping me launch my career he was one of the sweetest guys I ever knew. Great man. I loved him for real. Im completely broken. God bless him.

Meanwhile, Miller’s ex-girlfriend Ariana Grande has turned off comments on her Instagram after being attacked by trolls blaming her for Miller’s death. The pair split in May, with Grande calling the relationship “toxic”.
Before his death, Miller said he and Grande had both moved on after the breakup.
“I am happy for her and [the fact that she’s] moving forward with her life, just as I’m sure she is with me,” he told Apple Music.
