Rapper Mac Miller dies of apparent overdose

Ariana Grande has disabled comments on her Instagram account in the wake of her ex, Mac Miller's, death from an apparent overdose.

Our thoughts are with Mac Miller, his family, friends and his fans.

Born in Pittsburgh as Malcolm McCormick, the rapper first found fame releasing music online as a teenager, choosing a minimalist style with heavy beats that harked back to early hip-hop.

Mac was due to be embarking on a tour of the U.S. next month, following the release of his latest album, Swimming.

Shortly after the crash, ex-girlfriend Ariana Grande posted a statement about their former relationship, writing that she had "cared for him and tried to support his sobriety".

When the Pittsburgh MC first exploded into hip-hop in 2011 with his first album, Blue Slide Park - a wide-eyed glide of airy boom-bap beats and youthful rhymes that his growing grassroots fanbase turned into the first independently distributed debut to top the USA chart since 1995 - he became "the most Googled thing on the internet".

Notable quote: "I just wanna go on tour", Miller tweeted on Thursday. I hung out with Mac a few times over the years and he was always such a sweetheart, always had the time of day for anyone, whoever they were, ' he said. Cool. What can I really do? "Im completely broken. God bless him", said Chance the Rapper on Twitter.

"I was not happy and I was on lean very heavy", Miller added.

Miller has had an open struggle with substance abuse.

In 2011, Miller wrote a song about becoming fabulously wealthy and, seeking a metaphor, entitled the song "Donald Trump". His second album, Watching Movies With The Sound Off, came out in 2013.

The top song from his Swimming album, Ladders talked about finding success while in a slump.

"A lot of the reviews were more on me as a person", he told Complex.

His 2016 album The Divine Feminine gave Miller his highest Australian chart ranking, at #13 on the Album Charts, and Swimming reached #21.

Just weeks after Ariana Grande and Mac Miller's breakup, the rapper was charged with DUI after crashing his vehicle in Los Angeles, and quickly, many of his fans began to blame Grande for bailing on him when he needed her the most. Pitchfork magazine called it "the most surprising, concise, and accomplished album of his career".

TMZ first reported Miller's death.
