Rapper Mac Miller reportedly left $4.48million fortune to his family after his death
Mac Miller whose full name is Malcolm James McCormick passed away in September last year as a result of an accidental drug overdose.
Late Mac Miller's will has been revealed and the rapper has left around $4.48million to his mother, his father, and his brother. The rapper had passed away in September due to an accidental drug overdose.
Mac Miller whose full name is Malcolm James McCormick named his mother Karen Meyer, his father Mark McCormick, and his brother Miller McCormick as the full beneficiaries of his estate. According to TMZ, documents show a 'portion' of Mac's wealth who when he passed was worth more than $4.48million.
This is linked to "‘checkings, savings and money market accounts". It also includes around 200 Facebook shares which have an estimated at $32,000 (£24.7k). However, his accountants revealed that his estate may very well be worth more than this given the will does not relate to cars or other properties. Around two years before his death, Mac had said that he "hated being sober" and also spoke about how being rich meant that he could afford any drugs that he wanted. In 2016, he told Fader magazine, "I'm always like, if someone's like 'you wanna try this?' I'm just like 'yeah, sure'. And then it just kinda f***s you up if you've got a bunch of money because if you try a drug, you like it, you can buy a lot of it."
"At one point weed didn't relax me from everything, it made me more paranoid about all this s**t happening. So I needed to get a drug that was a little more numbing, if you will, and less, like, in your head. I think that's what sparked me doing other drugs, because I hate being sober. I wanted a drug to do," he continued.
Miller also spoke about overdose and said that there was no romance in dying from an overdose. "Overdosing is just not cool. There's no legendary romance. You don't go down in history because you overdose. You just die," he shared.
According to the coroner's report, Miller died from "mixed drug toxicity": specifically, a lethal mix of fentanyl, cocaine, and alcohol, the coroner determined. The report also noted that although the individual quantities of the drugs consumed were not necessarily a lethal amount, it was the combination that proved fatal. Miller struggled with substance abuse throughout his life and had spoken openly about it in the past, with drug abuse and addiction forming major themes in his lyricism as well.
The rapper's estate will also get a sizeable increase if he wins the Grammys this year. The late rapper, who is nominated for Best Rap Album, will have his parents Mark and Karen accept the award on his behalf in case he wins. Miller's album 'Swimming' was posthumously nominated for the award in December. This was the 'Self Care' hitmaker's first Grammy nomination.
