Rapper Mac Miller dies of apparent overdose

United States rapper Mac Miller has been found dead at his California home, USA media report.

Malcolm James McCormick, the rapper and producer best known as Mac Miller, has died at 26, Variety reported Friday.

Los Angeles Fire Department officials said they responded to a death investigation at a home at the 11600 block of Valleycrest Road on Friday. "I was lost." This past May, the rapper was arrested for a DUI and hit and run after wrapping his vehicle around utility pole.

Earlier this summer, Miller was involved in a traffic incident in the San Fernando Valley area, fleeing the scene of the crash and later reportedly telling police he was driving drunk.

Miller dealt with substance abuse in the wake of his breakup with Ariana Grande, TMZ reported.

Miller and Grande collaborated on her first top 10 hit, the multiplatinum, "The Way", which propelled her from teen TV stardom to pop star, and they dated for two years before their relationship ended in May.

At the Frick Park Market, made famous in one of Miller's music videos, the day took a sudden and sad turn. Law enforcement agencies have confirmed to several U.S. publications that the 26-year-old died of an apparent overdose.

Mac Miller was a bright light in the music industry, and at 26, had accomplished more in his career than some do in a lifetime. He released five studio albums and many mixtapes, including under the aliases Delusional Thomas and Larry Lovestein. "I'm completely broken. God bless him".

"I respect and adore him endlessly and am grateful to have him in my life in any form, at all times regardless of how our relationship changes or what the universe holds for each of us".

His latest album, "Swimming", was released in August.
