Mac Miller died on Friday of a suspected overdose, according to TMZ. He was 26.

Miller was found at his home in San Fernando Valley, California, around noon on Friday and was pronounced dead at the scene, the outlet reported.

The Los Angeles Corner’s Office did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Months earlier, on May 14 Miller was arrested for drunk driving.

Early that morning, the rapper was arrested for DUI and hit and run  after he struck a power pole in the San Fernando Valley with his Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon and fled the scene; after law enforcement officers matched the vehicle’s license plates to Miller’s address, they arrested him at his home, a Los Angeles Police Department public information officer previously told PEOPLE.

The rapper’s latest album,  Swimming, was released on Aug. 3.

Opening up about his arrest, which occurred a week after news broke that Miller and longtime girlfriend Ariana Grande had split, the rapper told Zane Lowe on Beats 1 on Apple Music in July.

I made a stupid mistake. I’m a human being,” Miller explained. “But it was the best thing that could have happened. Best thing that could have happened. I needed that. I needed to run into that light pole and literally have the whole thing stop.”

However, Miller went on to let all of his fans know that they shouldn’t worry about him, because he’s doing fine.

“I have people that care about me and fans that love my music and it’s a beautiful relationship with them — people who have been with me through being a 19-year-old wide-eyed kid to being a self-destructive depressed drug user to making love music to all these different stages. Then they see something like that and they worry,” he explained. “So your first reaction is, ‘Let me tell them I’m cool.’”
