Mac Miller’s father Mark McCormick has spoken out, following the arrest of the late rapper’s alleged drug dealer.
Last week, Cameron James Pettit was charged for his alleged connection to the death of Mac Miller – who died from an accidental overdose on September 7, 2018.
According to NBC News, Pettit has been accused of providing Miller with counterfeit oxycodone pills, which were laced with fentanyl.
Following his arrest, Mac’s father attended an event at Blue Slide Playground in Pittsburgh to honour his late son.
Speaking in front of a large crowd, an emotional Mark said: “So they finally caught the motherf***er that sold him the drugs that killed him. And we find some comfort in that.”
Mac’s father warned the rapper’s fans to stay away from drugs, and reminded them that it’s not worth the risk.
He said: “Many of us who were young, including me, experiment with drugs. But it’s a different f***ing world out there. All it takes is a little tiny stone of fentanyl and cocaine and you’re dead.”
“The one thing I would say to you is don’t take the risk. It’s just not worth it,” McCormick added.
