Rapper Mac Miller has died at the age of 26, according to TMZ.

According to the report, the rapper died of an apparent overdose at his home in California.

He was reportedly found by a friend, who then called 911.

Miller suffered from substance abuse issues and was arrested for a DUI recently after his highly publicized breakup with singer Ariana Grande. The two broke up earlier this year.

“All of us at Warner Bros. Records are deeply shocked and saddened by the tragic news of Mac Miller’s untimely passing. Mac was a hugely gifted and inspiring artist, with a pioneering spirit and a sense of humor that touched everyone he met," said Tom Corson, co-chairman and COO with Warner Bros. Records, who represented Miller. "Mac’s death is a devastating loss and cuts short a life and a talent of huge potential, where the possibilities felt limitless. We join all of his fans across the globe in extending our thoughts and prayers to his family and friends.”

After news of Millers' death broke, celebrities and artists shared condolences and reactions on Twitter.

Miller had just released his album, Swimming, in August, and was scheduled to perform in Phoenix on November 2.
