Rapper Mac Miller has died from an apparent overdose at age 26.  The sad story and reactions from his close friends inside.

This afternoon, news broke that Pittsburgh native Mac Miller was found dead inside his apartment. The rapper was just 26.

TMZ reports:

Mac was found Friday around noon in a bedroom at his San Fernando Valley home, and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

We're told authorities were alerted by a male friend who placed a 911 call from Mac's home. The emergency dispatch audio reveals first responders were called for a patient in cardiac arrest.

Mac was set to go on tour soon, and actually posted Instagram videos from inside the studio late last night.

He had a history of apparent drug abuse, even citing that his breakup with Ariana Grande was especially an emotionally trying time for him.

After their breakup, he got a DUI after wrapping his car around a utility pole:

Miller has battled substance abuse issues for years ... something that came up again 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. He blew 2 times the legal limit.

After his arrest Ariana tweeted, "Pls take care of yourself" and was clearly concerned about substance abuse.

Mac also posted about his New York Mag interview just yesterday:

Miller’s reality show, Mac Miller and the Most Dope Family, ran for two seasons on MTV2.

Ariana, today, has had to turn off her Instagram comments due to fans and delusional commenters who are attacking and blaming her for his death. She made it clear after their break up a few years ago, that his substance abuse problem was at the center of their relationship issues. She also spoke out then explaining that it's not the job of women's, significant others or not, to save, heal and fix men. She is now trending with many defending the same sentiment:

A few years ago, Mac did a documentary with FADER magazine where he actually spoke abut not wanting drug use to kill him:

Plenty of rappers who have toured and worked with him have spoken out, and they're heartbroken:
