Rapper Mac Miller dies at age 26
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Mac Miller, the platinum hip-hop star whose rhymes vacillated from party raps to lyrics about depression and drug use, has died at the age of 26.
A family statement released through his publicist says Miller died Friday and there are no further details available on how he died.
Miller, who also drew headlines for his two-year relationship with singer Ariana Grande that ended earlier this year, was apparently found dead at his home in Los Angeles.
Los Angeles police said they responded to a report of a deceased person at a home on the same block where Miller is listed as a resident, but released no other details.
While Miller didn’t have a hit on Top 40 radio, he had a strong following on streaming networks. He often alluded to his battles with addiction over the years.
