A coroner has ruled rapper Mac Miller's death an accidental overdose due to a combination of drugs and alcohol.

The Los Angeles County Coroner's Office released the toxicology results Monday and revealed Miller died from "mixed drug toxicity".

The report, relayed by TMZ, reveals it was Mac's assistant who found him unresponsive and called emergency services. A friend called 911 and first responders were called for a cardiac arrest.

Police found a rolled up $20 bill with white powdery residue in Miller's pocket, with a bottle of prescription pills in the bathroom and an empty bottle of alcohol on the nightstand.

A person close to Miller, whose real name was Malcolm James McCormick, said he had spent the evening watching football.

The report notes that Miller's many tattoos included one of an hourglass on his arm with the words, "Only so much time left in this insane world".

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

The event raised money for Mac Miller Circles Fund, a nonprofit organization that supports youth arts and community-building programs in Pittsburgh. Grande released a new song, "Thank U, Next," on Saturday that mentioned Miller along with "Saturday Night Live" star Pete Davidson, her fiance until recently.
