Fans are remembering Mac Miller on the third anniversary of his death.
In 2018, Mac Miller whose real name is Malcolm McCormick, died of an accidental overdose due to a combination of fentanyl, cocaine, and alcohol per BBC. Prosecutors say Mac Miller thought he’d been sold a painkiller called oxycodone – but it had actually been laced with fentanyl, a powerful drug that is fifty times more potent than heroin, per the outlet.
Since his death, a trial date has been set in federal court for the three men charged with selling Miller the drugs that killed him per the Pittsburgh Post Gazette. The trial is set to begin Nov. 16 in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California.
The Point Breeze native released six studio albums and was nominated for “Best Rap Album” for Swimming at the 2018 Grammys.
