The rapper (real name Malcolm McCormick) passed away at age 26 on Sept. 7, 2018 from an accidental overdose of fentanyl, cocaine and alcohol, according to the toxicology report released by the Los Angeles County Coroner’s office. He was found dead in his San Fernando Valley, Calif. home. In 2019, three men were charged in connection to Miller’s death, and a Nov. 16 trial date has been set for the suspects, who have been in custody in L.A. since their respective arrests.
Cudi, who paid tribute to Miller during his 2019 Coachella performance of “Pursuit of Happiness,” wrote on Twitter, “always in my heart” while Kehlani added on her own account,” forever n ever.” Juicy J instructed his 2.7 million Twitter followers to pay their respects properly today. “Let’s smoke out & listen to Mac Miller all day,” he wrote.
Frequent collaborator Ty Dolla $ign — who recently featured Miller’s posthumous vocals on his and Dvsn’s Cheers to the Best Memories album highlight “I Believed It” — retweeted a post from the official The Mac Miller Memoir Twitter account that honored “the man who’s music inspired and saved a generation.”
