Mac Miller’s Death Confirmed As Accidental Overdose
Due to “mixed drug toxicity.”
According to the L.A. County Coroner’s office, Mac Miller’s death has been ruled an accidental overdose due to the result of “mixed drug toxicity.”
The rapper passed away in September just as his artistic vision was starting to be noticed by the world with his latest offering, Swimming, being deemed one of his best pieces of work musically.
The toxicity report released by the coroner’s office states that fentanyl, cocaine and alcohol were found in Miller’s system, and it was the mixture of drugs that caused the rapper’s death.
Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is 30 times more powerful than heroin. According to Rolling Stone, the drug fentanyl has been the cause of a number of high profile deaths over the past few years, including Prince, Tommy Petty, and Lil Peep.
The coroner’s report revealed details regarding where Miller was discovered and how after 911 was called the rapper was moved in order for his personal assistant to perform CPR until the paramedics arrived on scene.
Reportedly the paramedics never transported Miller to the hospital as he had already passed away when the medical professionals arrived, stating that he was unresponsive and could not be revived.
Miller spoke about his addiction issues through his music and in various interviews throughout his life, with a bottle of alcohol, prescription pills and a “white, powdery substance” all being found within his home after his death.
According to the autopsy report, Miller even had a tattoo saying: “Only so much time left in this crazy world.”
