Mac Miller is dead. According to Hypebeast, the 26-year-old Pittsburgh rapper passed from a drug overdose.
Though he was very public about his addiction to the promethazine-and-codeine hybrid known as lean in his music, he claimed to have given it up recently in a July 2018 interview with Zane Lowe.
In August this year, he released his fifth album Swimming. It was critically celebrated as one of the best works he ever released.
He will be utterly missed.
