  • Mac Miller has passed away at the age of 26

The music world is coming to grips with the devastating loss of rapper Mac Miller today, who died following a suspected drug overdose at the age of 26.

Rapper Wiz Khalifa, who like Miller grew up in Pittsburgh and was close to him, tweeted on Friday: "Praying for Mac's family and that he rest easy".

She later called it a "toxic" relationship on Twitter.

In May, he was arrested for driving under the influence and hit and run when he wrecked his vehicle by crashing into a utility pole.

According to reports, Ariana is "devastated" after hearing of Miller's death.

"A lot of times in my life I've put this pressure to hold myself to the standard of whatever I thought I was supposed to be, or how I was supposed to be perceived", he told the NY magazine's Vulture website. "I will continue to pray from the bottom of my heart that he figures it all out and that any other woman in this position does as well (sic)".

Another source said Grande is heartbroken, adding, "Despite their split, Ariana had always been supportive of his sobriety".

Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Miller began to focus on his music while still at school and released his first mixtape under the name EZ Mac at just 15.

Mac also opened up about how the public perceived him. On Thursday night Mac posted a video of a record player with his song "So it Goes" playing in the background.

After they put an end to their relationship, Ariana posted on Instagram the following statement: 'This is one of my best friends in the entire world and favorite people on this planet - Malcolm McCormick.

He started piano lessons at the age of six, later picking up drums, bass and keyboards. His 2016 album, "The Divine Feminine", charted at number 2 on the Billboard 200 and featured guest appearances from Kendrick Lamar, Anderson Paak, and Ariana Grande.

The 25-year-old performing ten songs from her recent album Sweetener, as well as an a cappella rendition of 'One More Time'. But Miller refused to exploit their break-up on his latest album, Swimming.

Ellis - who later issued a feeble apology, saying "it would never be my intention" and "maybe I was too friendly" - had wrapped his arm around her, his hand high above her waist and his fingers pressed against her chest.

Tragically, it appears he lost the battle.
