  • Mac Miller

When officers and emergency personnel arrived at the scene, they determined the Pittsburgh rapper had been dead before they got there, TMZ reported Thursday, citing law enforcement sources.

Mac Miller's friend who called 911 after discovering his body was frantic on the phone, the new recording reveals.

It is not known if the man was with him at the time, as he told the dispatcher he had last spoken with Miller "yesterday".

After police investigated Mac Miller's home after he was found dead, they said the house was wiped clean of any drugs or paraphernalia with the exception of a small amount of white powder.


Miller died on Friday from what authorities believe was an overdose.

Toxicology reports that will yield more insight into Miller's death are expected to be returned in four to six weeks. It was called in as "cardiac arrest", because the person may not have realized he was dead. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Thank you so much for everybody being here. There are no further details as to the cause of his death at this time'.

A host of stars have paid tribute to Mac, including his ex-girlfriend Ariana Grande and Elton John. Mac had struggled with substance abuse, previously admitting he battled an addiction to lean or purple drank - a mixture of promethazine and codeine.

In multiple interviews Miller said he had started using drugs including cocaine and opiates when he was just 15 years old.
