Malcolm James McCormick, the chart-topping rapper known as Mac Miller, had fentanyl, cocaine and ethanol in his system at the time of death on September 7, according to the Los Angeles County's Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner.

A Los Angeles County coroner's report released today named the 26-year-old Miller's cause of death as "mixed toxicity", saying cocaine, alcohol and the powerful opioid fentanyl were found in his system.


The coroner classified the overdose as accidental, TMZ reported. Officials pronounced him dead at the scene.

According to the report, Mac's assistant found him unresponsive on his bed in a "praying position" - kneeling forward with his face resting on his knees. During the 911 call, his assistant said that Miller was "blue". He also had blood coming out of one of his nostrils. The star-studded event, benefitting The Mac Miller Circles Fund, featured performances from Anderson.Paak, Chance the Rapper, John Mayer, Miguel, ScHoolboy Q, SZA, Travis Scott, Ty Dolla $ign, and more. The list of pills recovered in the home include Xanax, oxycodone, hydrocodone, and generic Adderall.


Miller, whose full name is Malcolm James McCormick, had battled with substance abuse for years, according to several reports. "Everyone who he worked with was aware that he was delicate, but thought it was because of the new album, nerves, nothing like this". "In China, you have some pretty big companies sending that garbage and killing our people", Trump added.
