Mac Mill reportedly died with a sizable amount of money. According to Celebrity Net Worth, Miller left behind a fortune worth around $9 million.
The Pittsburgh-bred artist made history in 2011 when he released his debut album Blue Slide Park.It marked the first independently-distributed debut to nab the coveted No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 since 1995 when Tha Dogg Pound released Dogg Food.
Miller’s label at the time — Rostrum Records — had a deal in place with iTunes that required them to pay the streaming platform just 25 percent of the album’s earnings and they got to split the rest.
After he parted ways with the imprint, Miller signed a deal with Warner Bros. for a reported $10 million.
The 26-year-old crafted five studio albums — including last month’s Swimming — which all debuted in the Top 5.
Over the years, Miller became the youngest MC to earn a spot on Forbes’ Hip-Hop Cash Kings list several years in a row.
Miller died on Friday (September 7) from a suspected drug overdose. Scores of fans and peers took to social media to express their grief.
His family released a statement at the time asking for privacy.
“Malcolm McCormick, known and adored by fans as Mac Miller, has tragically passed away at the age of 26,” the statement read. “He was a bright light in this world for his family, friends and fans. Thank you for your prayers. Please respect our privacy. There are no further details as to the cause of his death at this time.”
A celebration of Miller’s life takes place on Tuesday (September 11) at Pittsburgh’s Blue Slide Park.
