Malcolm James McCormick, known to his fans and the music industry as Mac Miller, died on Friday at the age of 26, according to TMZ. Miller reportedly died of an apparent drug overdose and was found dead at his home in Studio City, California. His death was confirmed by Variety.
Miller is best known for his 2015 album GO:OD AM and songs like “Weekend” and “Self Care.” He was also featured on Ariana Grande’s “The Way,” which the two collaborated on in 2013. He and Grande dated from 2016 to 2018.
Miller’s new album Swimming was just released on August 3, and he was set to go on tour in October. The last message posted to Miller’s official Twitter account was a tweet on Thursday night that expressed his excitement about kicking off his concert series:
Miller never flinched in writing music about his personal battles with rejection and the music industry, or about his struggles with drug and alcohol addiction. That put a spotlight on the life he led in the public eye. In May, Miller was charged with a DUI after crashing his Mercedes into a power pole.
“I used to rap super openly about really dark shit,” Miller told Vulture in an interview this month, when discussing his early music and its allusions to hard drugs and the theme of dying young. “Because that’s what I was experiencing at the time. That’s fine, that’s good, that’s life. It should be all the emotions.”

Scott Storch – Still Storch (Vevo Original)
You know him for the most infamous beats in hip hop and RnB for artists such as 50 Cent, Dr. Dre, Mario, Terror Squad, Beyoncé to name a very small few. There are few music careers like that of Scott Storch. The esteemed producer-songwriter made his initial mark in Philly as a key member of the Roots. A great start, but just the beginning of a wild ride to the top. Storch’s way with crafting hooks and shaping melodies, as well as his knack of being in the right place at the right time, brought him to Cali, where the inspired keyboardist began shaping the sound of pop, hip-hop and R&B, working with an array of artists that stretch from Dr. Dre and Beyoncé to 50 Cent Christina Aguilera. The hits rolled in, the money stacked up, and creativity exploded. A big chunk of the 2000’s best music has Storch’s name on it. Then, through a string of drug troubles and monetary woes, he dropped out of sight for decade. It was the music’s loss. Now he’s back in action, and our intimate profile ‘Still Storch’ paints a portrait of a man who’s seen it all and is still cranking out great tracks. These days his studio hosts artists such as French Montana, Chris Brown, A$AP Ferg as well as talented newcomers like Kyle and Thutmose. A victory come-back. For hip-hop fans, ‘Still Storch’ is a must-see mini-doc, an extended look at talent, addiction, and an unyielding passion for artistry.
