Rapper Mac Miller dies of apparent overdose

BREAKING Rapper Mac Miller is dead aged just 26

Rapper Mac Miller spoke about his desire not to die of an overdose and how he "hated being sober" in a 2012 interview that has resurfaced online following his death.

The rapper, whose music had documented struggles with substance abuse and depression, was found unresponsive at his home in Los Angeles on Friday morning after a reported overdose.

According to TMZ, Davidson and Grande officially began dating immediately following Ariana's split from Miller.

Several months ago, Miller wrecked his vehicle, and he was also arrested for a DUI and hit and run. The pair were first romantically linked shortly after Grande and Miller's breakup went public earlier this summer. Mac fled the scene after crashing the auto but later confessed to law enforcement.

He released his fifth, full-length album "Swimming" last month, with Variety calling it "a simple, stately, poetic autobiography".
