Another tragedy has rocked the music world — Mac Miller was found dead in his California home on Friday. He was 26.
The rapper was found around noon in the bedroom of his Studio City home. It has been reported that he was scheduled to shoot a music video today … he was also supposed to go on tour next month.
According to TMZ, “emergency dispatch audio reveals first responders were called for a patient in cardiac arrest.” Miller was pronounced dead at the scene.
The “Self Care” rapper battled drug abuse for years. He was recently arrested for a DUI after a hit-and-run. It was also a topic of discussion during his break-up from pop superstar Ariana Grande with her tweeting, “I have cared for him and tried to support his sobriety & prayed for his balance for years.”
Many of Mac’s fellow hip hop artist tweeted their condolences:
RIP, Mac Miller.
