Cause of death: Accidental drug overdose

Mac Miller was found unresponsive at his Studio City home by his personal assistant in the morning of September 7th, 2018. Miller’s personal assistant performed CPR on the rapper until paramedics arrived, but the musician was pronounced dead shortly after the responders arrived at the scene. Two months after, the Los Angeles County Coroner’s office determined that Miller died from an accidental drug overdose due to a “mixed drug toxicity” of fentanyl, cocaine, and alcohol.

Miller began his music career in Pittsburgh’s hip hop scene in 2007 at the age of 15. Throughout his career, he released six studio albums, namely Blue Slide Park (2011), Watching Movies with the Sound Off (2013), GO:OD AM (2015), The Divine Feminine (2016), Swimming (2018), and Circles (2020). His sixth and final album was posthumously released.
