Grande disables Instagram comments after Miller's death

The rapper Mac Miller has died of an apparent overdose at age 26, TMZ reports.

Born Malcolm James McCormick and previously known as EZ Mac, Miller was reportedly suffering from drug-related illnesses and substance abuse, especially in light of his break-up with Grande after nearly a two-year-long relationship.

Miller's body was found Friday at about noon at his San Fernando Valley home, law enforcement told TMZ. "There are no further details available as to the cause of his death".

It was released in November 2011 and debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 chart, becoming the first independently-distributed album to top the charts since Tha Dogg Pound's Dogg Food in 1995. One song, "Hurt Feelings", was released as a promotional video to help promote Miller's latest album "Swimming", which was released early last month.

Miller and singer Ariana Grande dated for two years, and she confirmed in May that the couple had split.

"How absurd you minimize female self-respect and self-worth by saying someone should stay in a toxic relationship because he wrote an album about them, which btw isn't the case (just Cinderealla is ab me)", she tweeted.

He was open about his trouble with substance abuse including an addiction to powerful cough syrup - known on the street as purple drank.

Rappers like J Cole and Chance the Rapper took to Twitter to wish Miller peace in his final resting place, while some fans posted about what an inspiration he was to them in life.

Mac Miller was just enjoying an evening out with his friends the night before his tragic death yesterday.

McCromick was in a 2-year relationship with Ariana Grande until May. I can not wait to know and support you forever, and I am so proud of you!' He reportedly signed his label to Warner Bros Records for some $10 million.

In May, Miller was arrested for driving under the influence and hit-and-run after hitting a utility pole with his 2016 Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon.

"I used to rap super openly about really dark s***", he told Vulture in a profile that published on Thursday. "There was always a lot more to me than what people wanted to say, that's the only thing that ever bothered me, " Miller said. "One social media user goes as far I accusing her of murder:" It's amusing because you actually did kill him".

Even after Grande blocked Instagram comments, trolls continued tweeting nasty messages to her.
