Rapper Mac Miller has died at age 26 of an apparent overdose, TMZ reports. 

According to the report, the Pittsburg-based rapper and Ariana Grande's ex-boyfriend was found Friday at around noon at his San Fernando Valley home and was pronounced dead at the scene.  Authorities were reportedly alerted by a male friend who placed a 911 call from Mac's home.

Miller was recently charged with a DUI after crashing his car into a power pole in Los Angeles this May.  Miller confessed to the crash when police arrived at his home and taken into custody and released on $15,000 bail. Shortly after the crash, ex-girlfriend Ariana Grande posted a statement about their former relationship, clearly concerned about the substance abuse, writing that she had “cared for him and tried to support his sobriety.”

Mac Miller's latest album, his fifth studio effort, titled 'Swimming' arrived recently on August 3. As TMZ points out, his 2014 mixtape, 'Faces,' was almost autobiographical on the subject of drug use, with several references to premature death in the lyrics.

This is a developing story. More details will be updated as and when they are revealed.
