Very sad news.

TMZ reports the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office has released its toxicology report on Mac Miller's death, revealing he died from "mixed drug toxicity" – specifically fentanyl, cocaine and alcohol.

The gossip site says the rapper's death has been officially categorised as an accidental overdose. The amount of each drug individually was not lethal, however, the combination is what killed him.

Miller, real name Malcolm McCormick, died in September at his San Fernando Valley home.

A male friend called 911 from Mac's home, but he was sadly pronounced dead at the scene. 

The rapper was very open about his substance abuse issues and had reportedly been struggling since breaking up with girlfriend Ariana Grande earlier this year. 

In May, he was arrested for DUI after crashing his car into a pole and then fleeing the scene. He later confessed and blew two times the legal limit. 

A month before his death he was also charged with two counts of driving under the influence.

Around the same time he told Vulture:

"I used to rap super openly about really dark s*** because that’s what I was experiencing at the time. That's fine, that's good, that's life. It should be all the emotions."
