No one is mourning Mac Miller’s death from an apparent overdose more than his own family. His father in particular was his biggest fan and desperately hoped his son would get sober.
The music world took a huge hit on Sept. 7 when 26-year-old rapper Mac Miller was found dead in his Studio City, CA home from an apparent drug overdose. His issues were known, and ex-girlfriend Ariana Grande, 25, addressed them when explaining why she had to get out of their “toxic” two-year relationship in May. His family has released a heartbreaking statement following the death of the Pittsburgh born rapper. “Malcolm McCormick, known and adored by fans as Mac Miller, has tragically passed away at the age of 26. He was a bright light in this world for his family, friends and fans. Thank you for your prayers. Please respect our privacy. There are no further details as to the cause of his death at this time,” the Miller family wrote.
