Three men have been charged with providing Mac Miller with the drugs that killed him. 

The American rapper, whose real name was Malcolm McCormick, overdosed in September last year aged 26. He was discovered unresponsive in his Studio City home on Sept. 7, 2018. 

The men, Cameron Pettit, Stephen Walter and Ryan Reavis are accused of conspiring and distributing cocaine and oxycodone pills laced with the fentanyl that caused the overdose. They face up to life in jail if found guilty and remain in custody.

Before Miller’s death, he had asked that his supply be furnished with “percs,” an abbreviation for percocet, a prescribed painkiller containing oxycodone.

Prosecutors in Los Angeles say Mac Miller thought he’d been sold a painkiller called oxycodone but it had actually been laced with fentanyl, a powerful drug that is 50 times more potent than heroin.

The coroner found fentanyl, cocaine and alcohol in his body and concluded he had accidentally taken an overdose two days before his death. 

Prosecutors say their evidence against Mr Pettit includes messages he sent after the body was discovered. He told a friend: “Most likely I will die in jail.”
