Mac Miller Cause Of Death, Accidental OD of Fentanyl & Cocaine

Malcolm James McCormick, the chart-topping rapper known as Mac Miller, had fentanyl, cocaine and ethanol in his system at the time of death on September 7, according to the Los Angeles County's Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner. TMZ has obtained the toxicology report from the L.A. County Coroner's Office.

Mac Miller's death has been ruled an accidental overdose. Alcohol and drug paraphernalia were found; however, TMZ reported the house was mostly "swept clean" before investigators arrived.

The report also detailed that he was found by his assistant in a "praying position" kneeling forward with his face resting on his knees.

Following some uncertainty, Mac Miller's cause of death has now been revealed. Officials pronounced him dead at the scene. A rolled up $20 bill with white powdery residue was also found in his right pocket.

Mac, real name Malcolm McCormick, previously spoke out about his battle with substance abuse in the past.

Several artists, including Chance the Rapper, ScHoolboy Q and Ty Dolla $ign, paid tribute to him last week at a benefit concert in Los Angeles. The rapper died from accidentally overdosing on a mixture of fentanyl, cocaine and alcohol.

Just before his death, Miller had announced a joint tour with Thundercat, to start in October. The majority-or least 68 percent-of those deaths could be attributed to opioids such as fentanyl.
