Rap singer Mac Miller dies of suspected overdose

Rap singer Mac Miller dies of suspected overdose

One of Miller's six albums was named after the "Blue Slide Park" portion of Pittsburgh's Frick Park.

Miller was born Malcolm McCormick in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in 1992.

In May, he was arrested for a DUI and hit and run after crashing into a power pole and fleeing the scene.

His 2014 mixtape "Faces" also included numerous references to drug use. His fans are experiencing turmoil to the point of needing someone to blame for the rapper's untimely death. That's fine, that's good, that's life.

The couple had dated for almost two years before Grande broke it off in May.

The hate spread on Grande's Instagram account today is jarringly reminiscent of an incident that took place earlier this year on Twitter, in which a user blamed Grande for Miller's May auto accident.

His latest album, "Swimming", was released in August. The tour was scheduled to begin October 27. On Thursday he tweeted: "I just wanna go on tour". "I wish it started tomorrow", he wrote. According to a setlist that appears early in the video, Miller performed at least 12 songs during the set. Discussing life after the split, Miller told the outlet, "I was getting my bearings, figuring out how to move".

Celebrities have flocked to Twitter to express grief over Miller's passing.

"At one point weed didn't relax me from everything, it made me more paranoid about all the s**t happening", Miller said. I can not wait to know and support you forever, and I am so proud of you!' Great man. I loved him for real.

Ed Sheeran, Post Malone, Solange, Chance The Rapper, Travis Barker and Snoop Dogg are just some of Mac's peers to share their thoughts, while here in Australia, artists such as Cub Sport and Alison Wonderland have also paid tribute (read what they all had to say below).

Added pop singer Shawn Mendes: "Unreal".

Always exuded so much kindness and goodness. Thank you for your prayers.

Miller had been open about his struggles with substance abuse, which he addressed candidly in the short documentary "Stopped Making Excuses".

A source told Entertainment Tonight that Grande was "devastated" by the news of Miller's death.

In an interview with Vulture that was just published a day before his death, Miller confessed to anxiety over the expectations heaped on him by the industry and his fans.
