Rapper Mac Miller Has Died at 26

"I needed that. I needed to run into that light pole and literally have the whole thing stop".

"I was in love with somebody".

The 25-year-old singer, who split from the rapper back in May after two years together, quickly became the target of vicious comments from trolls, who blamed her for Miller's tragic death.

The news of Mac Miller's death had barely broken Friday afternoon before an outpouring of mourning and condolences flooded social media from his fellow rappers and celebrities as well as fans alike.

"Dang R.I.P. I was just getting to learn more about you". "I was so f. up all the time it was bad". "It is wanting the best for that person even if at the moment, it's not you". "I am not a babysitter or a mother and no woman should feel that they need to be", she wrote on Twitter in response to a tweet blaming her for Miller's DUI. "Please reach out to me".

People at the venue saw a string of sheriff's and police cars responding to the fairgrounds around 6:40 p.m. The man pulled out a silver plated semi-automatic handgun and fired several shots into a crowded area.

Malcolm James McCormick described himself as a corny white rapper, but to many fans, he was a prolific lyricist, and to many in his industry, he was a genuine friend.

One of his biggest songs was the 2011 platinum-certified mixtape track "Donald Trump", which prompted a feud with the future president. Two years later he started the label REMember Music and released his sophomore album "Watching TV with the Sound Off".

Hours before his death, Miller posted an Instagram story where a vinyl record is seen playing, featuring lyrics from his song So it Goes: "Well, everybody gather 'round, I'm still standing, sit down.And I know been out.So it goes, so it goes".

"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". His breakup with Grande reportedly played a big role in inspiring the album, while also exploring themes that he had brought up during his 2016 smash album, The Divine Feminine.

Numerous social media posts of condolences focused on how much of Miller's content for his music dealt with topics such as depression and drug use. Pitchfork magazine called it "the most surprising, concise, and accomplished album of his career". But further information provided by police all but confirmed the answer to the question of how did Mac Miller die?
