Mac Miller’s Mom Asks Friends & Artists NOT To Participate In Unauthorized Biography
Over a year after the rapper’s tragic death, Mac Miller’s mother, Karen Meyers, took to Instagram on Friday (Oct. 18) to reveal her concerns with an unauthorized biography in the works on her son. In her post, she warns Miller’s friends, fans, and former business partners not to participate.
“To artists, management & friends: there is a writer doing a Mac Miller biography that some of you have been approached about or will be. This book is not authorized/approved by Mac’s family or Estate. We are not participating and prefer you don’t either if you personally knew Malcolm.”
Just last month, Miller’s family celebrated his life on his birthday. Their celebration was held at Pittsburgh’s Blue Slide Park. The rapper’s father made an appearance and spoke during the gathering to offer his son’s words of advice,
“Many of us who were young, including me, experiment with drugs. But it’s a different fucking world out there,” Mac’s father, Mark McCormick, said. “All it takes is a little tiny stone of Fentanyl and cocaine and you’re dead. And the only thing I would say to you is: Don’t take the risk. It’s just not worth it.”
“So they finally caught that motherf**ker”

As previously reported, investigators recently connected three men to his death from an accidental overdose of fentanyl, alcohol, and cocaine in September 2018.
Cameron James Pettit, 28, Stephen Andrew Walter, 46, and Ryan Michael Reavis, 36, have been charged. Walter has also been charged for being a felon in possession of ammunition. A U.S. District Court grand jury in L.A. alleged that the three suspects distributed the pills that were laced with fentanyl.
Pettit and Walter will have a post-indictment arraignment on Oct. 10, while Reavis is scheduled to be relocated to Southern California for more proceedings.
“It has become increasingly common for us to see drug dealers peddling counterfeit pharmaceuticals made with fentanyl. As a consequence, fentanyl is now the No. 1 cause of overdose deaths in the United States.”
“These defendants allegedly continued to sell narcotics after Mr. McCormick’s death with full knowledge of the risks their products posed to human life.”
