Mac Miller’s dad, Mark McCormick, attended a celebration of life for the rapper on the one year anniversary of his death Saturday (Sept. 7) at Pittsburgh’s Blue Slide Park. At the event, McCormick addressed a crowd of fans, discussing the arrest of the man who sold Miller the drugs that ultimately led to his death.
“So they finally caught the motherf—-ker that sold him the drugs that killed him,” he said, met by cheers from the audience, many of whom were wiping tears. “And we find some comfort in that. Many of us were young, including me, experimenting with drugs, but it’s a different f—ing work out there.”
“All it takes is a stone, a little tiny stone of fentanyl and cocaine and you’re dead,” he continued. “Drugs are being laced with fentanyl, all kinds of drugs, and one thing I would say to you is don’t take the risk. It’s just not worth it.”

Miller died in 2018 of an accidental overdose of fentanyl, cocaine and alcohol. Three days before the anniversary of his death, 23-year-old Cameron James Pettit of Los Angeles was arrested on suspicion of selling the rapper counterfeit oxycodone pills laced with fentanyl.
