The Untimely Death of 26-Year Old US Rapper, Mac Miller
Mac Miller was a highly acclaimed American rapper who tragically passed away after a suspected overdose. Despite his many efforts to maintain sobriety, he struggled with his addictions over several years.
Mac Miller’s name has recently made headlines yet not for the release of another successful album but because of his tragic death due to a suspected overdose at the age of just 26. Born Malcolm James McCormick on 19 January 1992, the rapper and record producer garnered a loyal following since the release of his first album, Blue Slide Park in 2011. As a self-taught musician, his songs often reflected his ongoing struggles with addiction and have become a significant source of understanding relating to the addictive battles he faced since the age of 15.
