TMZ reports that the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office has released its toxicology report on Mac Miller, revealing the rapper died of "mixed drug toxicity".

An estimated 200 people die of overdoses every day, according to the US Drug Enforcement Administration.

His friends paid tribute to him during the "Mac Miller: A Celebration of Life" tribute concert in Los Angeles last week. However, he admitted that Miller, who had a history of drug addiction, was known to abuse "alcohol, non-prescribed medication (specifically Xanax and unspecified opiates), and cocaine". Prince died at 57 in April 2016, and a medical examiner ruled it an accidental overdose, finding fentanyl in his system.

There was a 1/4-inch cut on the bridge of his nose, and there was blood coming out of one nostril.

The 26-year-old performer, whose real name was Malcolm McCormick, was found dead at his home in Los Angeles on September 7 and the cause of death was deferred pending a probe.

Police also discovered a $20 bill with white powdery residue on it inside Miller's pocket, TMZ reported.

The drug was also a factor in the fatal overdose suffered by rapper Lil Peep in November 2017. Participating acts included Chance the Rapper, John Mayer and SZA. Days before his death, there were reports that he had broken up with his girlfriend, the singer Ariana Grande.
