Pittsburgh Rapper Mac Miller Was Dead for Hours Before Paramedics Were Called

When police and EMTs arrived, they determined the popular entertainer had died before they got there, TMZ reported Thursday.

As Radar previously reported, the Los Angeles Fire Department responded to a call made from Miller's home at 11:42 a.m. on September 7.

Sources told TMZ that police officers found traces of white powder in the house, but believe the place was wiped clean of any drugs or paraphernalia.

Miller, 26, died of an apparent overdose at his California home last Friday.

Mac Miller's friend who called 911 after discovering his body was frantic on the phone, the new recording reveals.

Miller's cause of death as "deferred" until toxicology and other tests are completed.

Miller released his latest record "Swimming" on August 3, and was recently in the headlines following a charge of DUI in May after he crashed his vehicle into a pole in Los Angeles.

Miller was born Malcolm McCormick in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in 1992. Thank you so much for everybody being here. Please respect our privacy. The family also released a statement at the time of his death.

A host of stars have paid tribute to Mac, including his ex-girlfriend Ariana Grande and Elton John. Mac had struggled with substance abuse, previously admitting he battled an addiction to lean or purple drank - a mixture of promethazine and codeine.

In multiple interviews Miller said he had started using drugs including cocaine and opiates when he was just 15 years old.
