American rapper and singer Mac Miller was found dead of an apparent overdose in his California home Friday afternoon.
TMZ reports a friend of the artist placed a 911 call from inside the home, and when authorities arrived on scene he was pronounced dead.
Miller was known for past drug abuse, which lead to his breakup with popstar Ariana Grande. His music had plenty of references to drugs and abuse.
Preparing to start for a tour in the next month, Mac Miller held an interview with Vulture, where he stated:
“A lot of times in my life I’ve put this pressure to hold myself to the standard of whatever I thought I was supposed to be, or how I was supposed to be perceived. And it creates pressure.” – Mac Miller
The story is still developing and we expect there will be more details released soon.
