TMZ reports that the Pittsburgh rapper was found earlier today at his home in the San Fernando Valley, dead of an apparent overdose, and Billboard has confirmed the news.
Miller has battled substance abuse for some time, and he was arrested for a DUI and a hit-and-run in May.
Miller was born Malcolm James McCormick in Pittsburgh.
In 2007, a 15-year-old Miller, under the name EZ Mac, released his first mixtape But My Mackin’ Ain’t Easy.
His records aren’t all great, but they all have moments of greatness, moments where Miller challenged both himself and his audience.
Miller has spoken of his addiction to promethazine, and he’s rapped about a lot of other drugs, as well. »
