Mac Miller’s Father Speaks Out After Drug Dealer Arrest


Mac Miller’s family is speaking out after a man was arrested for allegedly selling the rapper counterfeit drugs.

On the eve of his death, family and friends gathered to remember the Pittsburgh rapper at a memorial at Blue Slide Park in his hometown. His father, Mark McCormick, got emotional as he addressed the crowd.

“He remained loyalest to his friends,” said McCormick ( KDKA Pittsburgh). “He was always loving and kind to others.”

He also shared some words of wisdom about drugs, life, and pursuing dreams. “I don’t care if you want to be an artist, you want to be an architect, you want to be a musician, you want to be an accountant … whenever that moment happens, I think we have to go all in on finding the thing that we love to do, that gives us joy in life.”

On Wednesday (Sept. 4), prosecutors charged a Hollywood Hills man in connection with the death of Miller. Cameron James Pettit is accused of supplying the rapper with counterfeit oxycodone pills containing fentanyl two days before his death.
