The autopsy confirmed without a doubt that rapper Mac Miller, whose fame began with his song about President Donald Trump and a painful break up with singer Ariana Grande, died accidentally, after absorbing a mixture of drugs and alcohol. The report of the medical examiner published on Monday speaks of a “toxic mixture of drugs” including fentanyl – a very powerful opiate that caused unprecedented waves of deaths in the United States – cocaine and alcohol. The 26-year-old artist, whose real name is Malcolm McCormick, was found dead at his home in Los Angeles on Sept. 7. An investigation had been open to determine the exact causes of his death. Mac Miller died a few months after the end of his two-year relationship with Ariana Grande, whom he considered to be the source of his inspiration.
“The cause of death is accidental” stated his lawyer. In May, shortly after their breakup, he had a car accident and was charged with driving under the influence of drugs. He spoke openly about his addiction problems and said he was getting better and better while his fifth album recorded in the studio, “Swimming”, was being released in August. “Have I used drugs? Yes. But am I an addict? No, “he told Rolling Stone magazine. Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Malcolm McCormick gained fame by posting his music online as a teenager. His songs had a minimalist sound with a powerful rhythm reminiscent of the early days of rap. In 2011, he wrote a song with a theme about “becoming immensely rich” and, as a metaphor, titled it Donald Trump.
