MORE: Rapper Mac Miller arrested on suspicion of DUI after Studio City hit-and-run
Law enforcement vehicles were seen parked along Valleycrest Drive near the home of the rapper, whose real name is Malcolm James McCormick. The coroner's van arrived on scene shortly before 2:30 p.m.
Sometime around 4 p.m., Miller's body was placed into the van.
His family released a statement regarding Miller's death, but did not release details on how he died.
Back in May, McCormick was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence following a crash in Studio City.
McCormick and pop star Ariana Grande had broken up earlier that month, with Grande tweeting afterward: "pls take care of yourself."
