According to TMZ, Rapper Mac Miller died Friday of an apparent overdose. Miller has had trouble recently with substance abuse, in the wake of his breakup with Ariana Grande. The rapper wrecked his G-Wagon by wrapping it around a utility pole back in May and was arrested for DUI and hit and run. He fled the scene but cops say he later confessed at his home. After his arrest Ariana tweeted, “Pls take care of yourself” and was clearly concerned about substance abuse. After their breakup, Ariana made it clear… his substance abuse had been a deal breaker in their 2-year relationship.

Group chats and timelines blew up Friday afternoon, leaving fans in shock.

Junior Mylah Edwards said, “I am very depressed because I listened to his songs a lot in middle school and his music helped me through a lot. My favorite song by him is Self Care.”
