He was found unconscious and pronounced dead in his California home earlier today (September 7). Just last month, the Los Angeles Attorney's Office officially charged the rapper with a DUI stemming from a vehicle accident in May in the San Fernando Valley. In its review, Pitchfork stated that Miller "explores his headspace with considerably more focus than Drake, Future, or Post Malone, artists who sometimes cut emotional corners in their rush to the next banger". Shortly after his auto accident and arrest that same month, Grande tweeted "pls take care of yourself".
Miller, whose real name is Malcolm McCormick, started his journey in music as a teenager by putting out mixtapes in his native Pittsburgh. Asked directly by DeGeneres if she was happy with Miller, she said, "Yes".
A week after their breakup, Miller was arrested for allegedly crashing his auto while drunk and then fleeing the scene.
Miller had reportedly been struggling since he and pop star Ariana Grande broke up earlier this year. He wrapped his Mercedes G-Wagon around an electrical pole in the San Fernando Valley and fled the scene, though police later caught up with him at his home.
Chance The Rapper added that he met Mac "at a pivotal time in my life".
"I'd rather be the corny white rapper than the drugged-out mess who can't even get out of his house", he said. The two remained friends, with Miller gushing about her single "No Tears Left To Cry".
"It's unusual. Like, the whole thing is a little odd but it's not negative", he said.
The top song from his Swimming album, Ladders talked about finding success while in a slump.
He released his fifth studio album, "Swimming", last month. They're like 'Yo, man, are you okay?' I'm like 'Yeah, I'm f- at the grocery store.' You know?
