Details of Mac Miller's cause of death have surfaced - the hip hop star died from a lethal mix of fentanyl and cocaine.

His death was categorized as an accidental overdose, according to the website.

The singer Prince had taken fentanyl before his death in 2016.

He released his fifth and final album, Swimming, which addressed his struggles with substance abuse, on August 4.

Miller's personal assistant, making a daily visit to Miller's home in the San Fernando Valley section of Los Angeles, found him unresponsive on his bed at about 11:30 a.m., the report states.

An empty bottle of alcohol on the nightstand and white powder residue on a rolled up $20 dollar bill in his pocket were found, in addition to a slew of prescription pills in his bathroom.

Just less than two months ago (September 7), MC/producer Mac Miller died at the age of 26 in his Studio City, California residence.

According to an NPR report from earlier this year, cocaine laced with fentanyl, an opiate more powerful than heroin, is becoming more and more common.

Meanwhile, some of the biggest names in music performed at the "Mac Miller: A Celebration of Life" event in Los Angeles on Wednesday, Oct. 31, including the likes of John Mayer, Chance the Rapper, Travis Scott, and Ty Dolla $ign.

Miller died in September. After Miller's death, Grande said she was sorry she couldn't save the "sweetest soul" who for so long was her "dearest friend". In the song, she pays tribute to Miller.

"I was not happy and I was on lean very heavy", he said.
