Exit of an icon, Malcolm McCormick.
All of Mac Miller’s hard work of crafting his sound and music over the years has paid off impeccably. According to Celebrity Net Worth, the late artist left behind a fortune worth $9 million. Mac, born Malcolm McCormick, made waves with his debut album Blue Slide Park since it became the first independently-distributed debut tape to grab the #1 spot on the Billboard 200 since Tha Dogg Pound’s 1995 released Dogg Food.
Rostrum Records, the label Mac was with at the time, had a deal with iTunes where the streaming platform only got 25% of the album’s earning and they got to split the rest. His last label sign was with Warner Bros. for a reported $10 million that gave us five studio albums, including his last piece, Swimming. All the Warner Bros. repped albums debuted at #5 which led to Mac’s annual spot on Forbes’ list of Hip-Hop Cash Kings.
Mac sadly passed away on September 7th in his Studio City home. The exact cause of death has yet to be released. A vigil is being held today in his hometown of Pittsburgh at the city’s Blue Slide Park.
