This Is Where Mac Miller Is Buried

On September 7, 2018, Mac Miller, age 26, was found dead in his Studio City home (via Billboard). Only a month earlier, the famed rapper had released his fifth studio album, "Swimming." To say his death was shocking to the world and the music community would be an understatement. Hailing from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Mac Miller was born Malcolm James McCormick (per Hip Hop Scriptures). Miller began his music career as a teen and his 2011 debut studio album, "Blue Slide Park," topped the charts according to All Music.

From there, his career only grew, and his subsequent albums were even more successful. Miller also suffered from substance abuse and openly spoke about it in his lyrics. Rolling Stone states that he was doing well mentally and physically before his death despite a recent DUI and high-profile breakup with pop star Ariana Grande. Miller was in the studio working on new music and rehearsing for a tour. The night before he died, he was said to have watched football with friends and called his mom. The next morning, his assistant found Miller face down and unresponsive.

Mac Miller is buried in Pittsburgh

According to Billboard, the Los Angeles County Coroner found Miller's death was caused by an overdose of fentanyl, cocaine, and alcohol. It was ruled an accident brought on by recreational drug use. Find a Grave states that the rapper is buried at Homewood Cemetery in his hometown of Pittsburgh. Per The Blast, this is a cemetery that has significance for Miller. He used it in his music video for "Nikes On My Feet" and was also a place he would hang out with friends as a child.

In 2019, three men were charged in connection to Miller's death (via a different Billboard article). They allegedly all sold fentanyl-laced drugs to him despite knowing the potential risk of death. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is much more potent than heroin. The three defendants are currently in jail and are facing 20 years in prison and potentially life without the possibility of parole. The trial is set to start on November 16, over three years after Miller's death. Fentanyl, which is currently the leading cause of overdose death in the United States, is also connected to the deaths of superstars Prince and Tom Petty.
