  • TMZ: Rapper Mac Miller dies of apparent drug overdose

Mac Miller, the platinum hip-hop star whose rhymes vacillated from party raps to lyrics about depression and drug use, and earned kudos from the likes of Jay-Z and Chance the Rapper, has died at the age of 26.

TMZ shared news of Miller's passing on September 7, revealing that the rapper's body had allegedly been found around noon today at his San Fernando Valley home.

Ariana Grande disabled the comments on her Instagram account after ex-boyfriend Mac Miller was found dead on Friday.

TMZ first reported Miller's death.

Last month the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office officially charged him with DUI in connection with a vehicle crash earlier this year in the San Fernando Valley.

She and Miller dated for two years, but split in May. Further details are now unclear.

We invite you to share condolences for Mac Miller in his Guest Book. His 2011 debut, Blue Slide Park, reached No. 1 on that chart, followed by 2013's Watching Movies with the Sound Turned Off (No. 3); 2015's GO:OD AM (No. 4); 2016's The Divine Feminine (No. 2); and, released just last month, Swimming, which reached No. 3 on the Billboard 200. "I used to look at my phone, scroll through Twitter and Instagram, and get my ego stroked and destroyed in five minutes, every morning", he said.

The hate spread on Grande's Instagram account today is jarringly reminiscent of an incident that took place earlier this year on Twitter, in which a user blamed Grande for Miller's May auto accident.

Grande at the time wrote on social media that she had long tried to help Miller become sober but described their relationship as "toxic" and said, "I am not a babysitter or a mother and no woman should feel that they need to be".

In May, Miller was arrested for a misdemeanor DUI. The album featured the single "Small Worlds". He was scheduled to begin a nationwide tour to support the album late in October, for which he would have been accompanied by Kendrick Lamar collaborator Thunder Cat and rapper J.D. I wish it started tomorrow.

"I dont know what to say Mac Miller took me on my second tour ever".

"I was in love with somebody. Im completely broken. God bless him".
