Focused On Urban Issues, Nightlife, & Kenny Smoov
The rapper Mac Miller has died of an apparent overdose at the age of 26, according to a TMZ report. Per law enforcement sources, TMZ claims, Miller "was found Friday at around noon at his San Fernando Valley home and was pronounced dead at the scene."
Miller released his most recent album, the critically acclaimed Swimming, in early August. In a recent profile for Vulture, the rapper opened up about his struggles with addiction over the years, something he's rapped about frankly in his music:
I used to rap super openly about really dark shit,” he says of that time in his life and artistry and the mark it has left on the way audiences connect the facts of his life with the themes of his music, “because that’s what I was experiencing at the time. That’s fine, that’s good, that’s life. It should be all the emotions.
Miller was set to embark on a cross-country tour in support of Swimming in late October.
