Following his untimely death back in September of 2018, it appears Mac Miller left behind some valuable items.
According to TMZ yesterday (Sept. 12), Miller left behind millions of dollars in master recordings. The rapper’s estate filed legal documents, which states that his assets include $1.5 million in music royalties, $180,000 in Mac Miller LLC, an extensive jewelry collection, household furniture and electronics. All of the items total around $7 million.
Earlier this month, Miller’s alleged drug dealer was charged in connection to the rapper’s death. James Cameron Petit sold the Swimming spitter oxycodone pills laced with fentanyl despite Miller’s request for percocets. Currently, the 28-year-old dealer is looking at up to 20 years in prison.
After learning the news, Miller’s father, Mark McCormick, didn’t hold back his thoughts. “So they finally caught the muthaf--ka that sold him the drugs that killed him,” McCormick tells a crowd in the video. “And we find some comfort in that. Many of us who were young, including me, experiment with drugs. But it’s a different f--king world out there. All it takes is a little tiny stone of Fentanyl and cocaine and you’re dead.”
Moving forward, United States Attorney Nick Hanna, will be aggressively targeting drug dealers. “We are aggressively targeting drug dealers responsible for trafficking illicit fentanyl, which has become the most deadly facet of the opioid epidemic,” said Hanna. “We are committed to slowing the number of overdose deaths and prosecuting those responsible for spreading this most dangerous opioid.”
In an effort to keep Miller’s memory alive, MusicCares launched the Mac Miller Legacy Fund, which helps young people who are struggling with substance abuse. In a statement, Miller’s family explained that the opportunity will allow young people to realize their potential.
“These grants celebrate Malcolm’s life and legacy by funding two respected organizations that provide opportunities for young people to realize their talents and potential,” Miller’s family said. “It’s critically important to our family to fund a safety net for artists and musicians who are struggling with substance addiction. No life should be cut short for lack of expert help.”
