U.S. rapper Mac Miller died as a result of an accidental overdose involving cocaine, fentanyl and alcohol, a coroner has concluded.

Rapper Mac Miller's cause of death was revealed on November 5, and coroner's say he died of a mixture of fentanyl and cocaine.

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

The musician had fentanyl, cocaine and ethanol in his system, according to a toxicology report. The 26-year-old's cause of death was categorized as an accident. He was found by his assistant in a "praying position", kneeling forward with his face on his knees. The assistant described him as already being "blue" during the 911 call. The report further states that Miller was found in his bedroom with blood coming from one of his nostrils, and that cocaine residue, alcohol, and a prescription drug bottle were found by police.

Records co-chairman and COO, said after Miller's death.

A person close to Miller, whose real name was Malcolm James McCormick, said he had spent the evening watching football. Last year, the country experienced a record number of drug overdoses, an increase driven by synthetic opioid use, the CDC found.

Chance the Rapper, SZA and Miguel were among the artists to perform at a tribute concert at the weekend.

Miller's death came just months after he split from Ariana Grande and weeks after he was charged with a DUI.
