Mac Miller’s death

Back in November, it was reported that Mac Miller’s cause of death was ruled an accidental overdose. The late rapper’s cause of death came out after the L.A. County Coroner’s Office issued a toxicology report.

In the report, it was found that Miller had fentanyl, cocaine and alcohol mixed in his system, and as reported by Rolling Stone and Pitchfork, the mix of these substances caused the rapper’s untimely death at the young age of 26.

Upon hearing the news of the late rapper’s passing, many artists have come forward to offer their condolences to his family, friends and fans. Of those musicians, Ariana Grande wrote a heartfelt tribute, and Lil Xan expressed a desire to get sober.

Before his unexpected passing, the artist recorded two singles for a new Spotify session called Spotify Singles. The two-song EP was officially released back in November with a slowed down, version of his track “Dunno” from 2018’s Swimming.

In addition to the Swimming track, Miller also decided to do a cover of Billy Preston’s 1974 song, “Nothing From Nothing.”
