Mac Miller's Father Speaks Out After Drug Dealer's Arrest


Mac Miller’s family has broken their silence following the arrest of the late singer’s drug dealer. As previously reported, Cameron James Pettit, was arrested for allegedly selling Miller counterfeit drugs. 

On the eve of the one-year anniversary of Miller’s death, his family and friends gathered at a memorial at Blue Slide Park in his hometown Pittsburgh. According to KDKA Pittsburgh, Miller’s father, Mark McCormick, said to the crowd at the memorial, “He remained loyalest to his friends. He was always loving and kind to others.” 

He also said, “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.” 

According to Rap-Up, Miller’s father celebrated Pettit’s arrest at the late rapper’s memorial on Friday (September 6th). He said at the time, “So they finally caught that motherf**ker that sold him the drugs. And we find some comfort. And many of us were young including me experimenting with drugs, but it’s a different f**king world out there. And all it takes is a little stone, a little tiny stone of fentanyl and cocaine and you’re dead. Drugs are being laced with fentanyl, all kinds of drugs.” 

He added, “The one thing I would say to you, don’t take the risk. It’s just not worth it.”
