Miller died as a result of a mix of fentanyl and cocaine, according to a toxicology report from the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office.

Mac Miller's death has been ruled an accidental overdose.

Miller died in September 2018 and was found in his San Fernando Valley home.

The report also found that he had alcohol in his system. The manner of death was certified an accident. TMZ reports that the assistant described him during the 911 call as being "blue".


The night before his death, Miller was reportedly casually hanging out with friends and was watching football.

An empty bottle of alcohol was found on the nightstand, near Mac's body. and a bottle of prescription pills was found in the bathroom.

A small bag containing a white powdery substance was found on a table, while on another table an iPad was found with lines of white powdery residue on it, along with a rolled $20 bill with more white powder residue inside.

Miller's assistant agreed, saying Miller was feeling positive about his projects, but said he had a tendency to slip into drug binges, and had such an episode three days before the one that left him dead. Performers at a tribute concert for him last week included Chance the Rapper, Travis Scott and John Mayer. The majority-or least 68 percent-of those deaths could be attributed to opioids such as fentanyl.
