Autopsy finds rapper Mac Miller died from drugs and alcohol

More than 71,500 Americans have died of a drug overdose in 2017, according to data released the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Rapper Mac Miller died of mixed drug toxicity, the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office confirmed Monday. Investigators found Fentanyl, cocaine, and alcohol in his system.

Several recent high-profile deaths have also been linked to the drug.

American rapper Mac Miller (real name Malcolm McCormick) was found dead in his San Fernando home on September 7th.

The 26-year-old Pittsburgh native, who frankly discussed his depression and addiction in his rhymes, died suddenly on September 7.

Close to Mac's body was an empty alcohol bottle on a nightstand, and he had a rolled $20 bill with white powder residue in his right pocket. The majority-or least 68 percent-of those deaths could be attributed to opioids such as fentanyl.

Following his passing, Mac's family and the Pittsburgh Foundation formed what's called The Mac Miller Circles Fund, a charity meant to help "underserved communities", cope with drug abuse, through means of "exploration in the arts and community building". Records co-chairman and COO, said after Miller's death.

A few days ago, various musicians united in California to remember Miller's life with a tribute concert. Performers at a tribute concert for him last week included Chance the Rapper, Travis Scott and John Mayer.
