I'm absolutely shocked. TMZ has reported that Mac Miller has died of an apparent overdose. The rapper was found in his San Fernando Valley home today around noon. Police were called to the residence after a male called 911 from inside Mac’s home. Miller wrecked his G-Wagon in May after a breakup with then girlfriend, Ariana Grande. Miller fled the scene and was later charged with DUI and hit and run after he admitted to the wreck. Ariana had made it clear that the reason for their breakup was due to his substance abuse. Mac Miller posted a video on Instagram on Thursday, of a record player that’s playing his song "So it Goes," which includes the lyric "Nine lives, never, die, f*** a heaven, I'm still gettin' high." Mac was to tour next month, he was only 26.
On a personal note, I've been a fan since KIDS. I still rock with that album in my car and remember seeing Mac when he'd perform at 200-300 person venues. His come up is beyond deserved and he is one of my Top 5 artists. Creative beyond belief and to see him go so soon is nothing short of heartbreaking. #RIPMACMILLER
