TMZ reports the rapper was found dead in his California home at around noon on Friday, September 7 from an alleged overdose.
Rapper Wiz Khalifa, who like Miller grew up in Pittsburgh and was close to him, tweeted on Friday: "Praying for Mac's family and that he rest easy". He was reportedly slated to start a new tour in several weeks. "Although the two ended their relationship, Ariana always shared a deep connection with Mac and wanted nothing but the best for him", a source told ET.
Los Angeles police said they responded to a report of a deceased person at a home on the same block where Miller is listed as a resident, but released no other details.More news: 4 dead, 5 injured in shooting at Cincinnati bank
Last month, Miller released his fifth studio album "Swimming" and was scheduled to begin his US tour in October.
Mac Miller was 26 years old. In response, Grande fired back at critics, telling them that she isn't "a babysitter" or a "mother". "I was lost." This past May, the rapper was arrested for a DUI and hit and run after wrapping his vehicle around utility pole.

While Miller didn't have a hit on Top 40 radio, he had a strong following on streaming networks and even had an album debut at No. 1 on the top 200 albums chart. About a month after their break up, Grande got engaged to Pete Davidson, a Saturday Night Live cast member.
Before his death, Miller had done an interview with Vulture published on Thursday where he detailed his life and drug habits.
"Of course I didn't share how hard or scary it was while it was happening but it was". "I will continue to pray from the bottom of my heart that he figures it all out". You know, it's all positive energy. Do I wish that every single thing I did when I was 19 wasn't a discussion?More news: USA has seen evidence of Syria preparing chemical weapons in Idlib -envoy
