Rapper Mac Miller was found dead Friday after a suspected overdose, according to reports.

Emergency workers responded at 11:42 a.m.to his Studio City home after a 911 call was placed, the Los Angeles Fire Department told the Daily News.

Rapper Mac Miller has died at the age of 26.

In recent years, Miller has opened up about his issues with sobriety, and back in May, he was arrested for drunk driving and hit and run.

Mac and Ariana were dating for two years before the pair ended their relationship earlier this year and the singer got engaged to her now fiance, Pete Davidson.

Miller has reportedly struggled with substance abuse issues, and was recently charged with DUI for a hit-and-run vehicle crash back in May.

The rapper had reportedly been struggling with substance abuse since their split.

ET confirms that an adult male died at Miller's home on Friday, though officials would not confirm the identity. It was his mixtapes that brought him to online fame between 2010 and 2011; he released his debut album Blue Slide Park in July 2011.

Miller once dated pop star Ariana Grande.
