The cause of death is an apparent drug overdose.
Mac Miller was born in Pittsburgh in 1992. He was an integral part of the mixtape wave in the late 2000’s before getting signed to Rostrum Records in 2010. He released his seminal K.I.D.S. mixtape in 2010 and then Best Day Ever, before his first official album Blue Slide Park. Between 2011 and 2015 he kept releasing mixtapes during a label battle, before finding his stride again on GO:OD AM and then The Divine Feminine in 2016. He released his new album Swimming in August.
