In a statement from his family, they confirmed the 26-year old passed awat on Friday, September 7, although they remained coy on the details. “He was a bright light in this world for his family, friends and fans,” the statement read in part.

Prior to his death, the rapper has often talked about his struggle with substance abuse, and has at one time revealed he had to resort to hard drugs because using Marijuana had a negative effect on him. 

Miller had also revealed in past interviews that heavy criticisism over some of his musical projects led him to using hard substances such as the infamous “purple drank” which is a combination of codeine and promethazine.

Several high profile American artists including Missy Elliot, Chance the Rapper, Wiz Khalifa, Shawn Mendes and Charlie Puth have come forward with heavy tributes for the late rapper. Mac Miller was also rumored to have gone on a downward spiral since the much publicized break up with pop-star Arianna Grande.

The two, who met in 2012, ignited a romance after releasing several songs together, although they broke up in May 2018, in what Arianna revealed was a toxic relationship.

Arianna has often been forced to defend herself online, and she has been quoted saying she "tried to support his sobriety" for a number of years. One of her last tweets to Miller whilst he was still alive was “Please take care of yourself,”
