Mac Miller Dead at 26

Prolific rapper who underwent artistic reinvention dies from apparent drug overdose at Los Angeles home

Clarke Tolton for RollingStone.com

Mac Miller, the 26-year-old rapper known for his canny wordplay and artistic reinvention, died Friday at his Los Angeles home. The apparent cause of death was a drug overdose.

“Malcolm McCormick, known and adored by fans as Mac Miller, has tragically passed away at the age of 26,” his family said in a statement. “He was a bright light in this world for his family, friends and fans. Thank you for your prayers. Please respect our privacy. There are no further details as to the cause of his death at this time.”

While initially counted as a member of the frat-rap genre of the early 2010s, Miller’s career was defined by a refusal to fit in an artistic box. He transitioned from party rap to heady backpacker lyricism to jazz-inflected songwriting in his final two albums. To do so, he often turned away from guaranteed commercial success in favor of experimentation and craftsmanship in his work.


Not a tap fan but damn.. I was a fan. This one sucked.

I'm kinda embarrassed I had never heard of him. Really impressed.

Eddie Money, age 70, R.I.P.

I can't say that I'm a huge fan, but Eddie Money reminds me of when I was a kid in the 70s. I listened to a lot of radio back then and this song is for sure on the soundtrack of my A.M. radio days. :lol:

He was advanced and beyond such stuff...but I was doing blow on the tables at Trader Vic's drinking the whatever drink was their reservoir of sweet alc and he chuckled. Must have been late 80's early 90's...I don't remember. The rest of the night was great and not great. I loved seeing him.

Btw, watched The Devil and Daniel Johnstone last night...fairly excruciating. His good work reminds me of the stripped down work of Jane's at Wilton in personality.
