Rapper Mac Miller was found dead in his California apartment Friday after an apparent drug overdose, TMZ reported.

The 26-year-old, who once dated Ariana Grande, was charged by the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office in late August with DUI after he crashed his car in May and fled, according to The Hollywood Reporter. If convicted, he would have faced up to six months in jail.

He had been open about his drug use, the newspaper said.

Several artists took to Twitter in mourning.

The rapper was recently featured in Vulture last week. He was slated to start a tour next month.
