Mac Miller Dies at 26

Rapper Mac Miller has died aged 26.

According to TMZ, the rapper was found at his San Fernando Valley home and was pronounced dead at the scene today (September 7) at 12 noon.

Speaking to Billboard in 2015, he detailed his struggles following the success of his debut record: “I was doing a lot of drugs around that time, which is another difference now: I’m not doing as many drugs…It just eats at your mind, doing drugs every single day, every second. It’s rough on your body.”

In that same interview, Miller said his fear of death pushed him to create as much music as possible: “I’ve got to make sure I make all this music so when I die there’s albums and albums.”

Miller was due to start a tour next month for his latest album, ‘Swimming’. He had also been profiled in Vulture earlier this week (September 6) where the rapper had shared his difficulties of growing up in the public eye.

He said: “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.
