Chris Cornell and Susan Silver’s daughter Lily Cornell Silver has posted a tribute to rapper Mac Miller, who died on Friday from a reported drug overdose.
“Absolutely breaks my heart to see yet another life taken by addiction. Way too many, way too young. Addiction is a disease, fuck drugs man. Rest in peace Mac Miller.”
NPR reports that Mac Miller, the Pittsburgh-born rapper who developed a ravenous following over the course of five successful albums, died Friday of an apparent overdose in his Los Angeles home, multiple outlets have reported. He was 26 years old.
Born Malcolm James McCormick in Pittsburgh, Mac Miller had a string of hit albums reach the top ranks on the Billboard 200. His 2011 debut, Blue Slide Park, reached No. 1 on that chart, followed by 2013’s Watching Movies with the Sound Turned Off (No. 3); 2015’s GO:OD AM (No. 4); 2016’s The Divine Feminine (No. 2); and, released just last month, Swimming, which reached No. 3 on the Billboard 200. He was also a skilled producer under the alias Larry Fisherman.
Mac Miller openly struggled with substance abuse, which he documented throughout his mixtapes and albums. (On the song “Loud,” he said “Yeah, people lie, numbers won’t … Keep me high, drugs is close … Roll one up, pour a cup … Watch the world go up in smoke.”) Last month, the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office reportedly charged the rapper with a DUI in the wake of a May car accident, which came after a highly public breakup between he and singer Ariana Grande.
