Mac Miller Dead at 26

Mac Miller was found dead, and hip hop has lost an incredible talent.

Mac Miller always seemed to remain positive, and he made insanely creative music.

He’d been in the headlines more for his personal life lately than his music, as he broke up with longtime girlfriend Ariana Grande and crashed his car into a pole after driving while drunk.

Despite the drama, he spoke positively about using these events as learning experiences.

However, he was found dead in his home says a report from TMZ. His substance abuse problems seemingly went far beyond alcohol, as early reports point to an overdose. Ariana had broken up with him mainly because of his ongoing substance abuse issues. People blamed her for his behavior after their breakup but she responded, saying “I am not a babysitter or a mother and no woman should feel that they need to be. I have cared for him and tried to support his sobriety & prayed for his balance for years.” She added, “Of course I didn’t share about how hard or scary it was while it was happening but it was.”

A friend found him unresponsive at his home in Studio City and called 911, but responders could not revive him. You never know what people are going through, and this is yet another sad reminder to cherish your friends and family and check on them. A happy exterior can be deceiving.

Fans and his peers have been quick to mourn him, but all are in shock:

He released Swimming last month, which is now going down as his last album ever. Listen below and don’t forget the exceptional artist he was.
