Screen Shot 2021 10 27 at 9.03.20 AM

According to a report from TMZ, the man who was responsible for supplying Mac Miller with the lethal pills laced with fentanyl that ultimately killed him will plead guilty to the charges handed down by a California judge.

Stephen Walter pleads guilty to one count of distribution of fentanyl in a federal court on Tuesday.

Walter was allegedly the one who gave the Percocet pills to Cameron James Pettit, who was found to directly give the pills to Miller the night before his untimely death.

With this conviction, Walter faces up to 20 years behind bars as well as lifetime supervised release and a $1 million fine. Prosecutors are recommending 17 years in prison and 5 years supervised release. Walter was already on supervised release from another drug case he was involved with.

TheSource.com will update this story as details develop.

Movie Starring Machine Gun Kelly Honors Mac Miller By Changing Film Title

Mac Miller Movie Starring Machine Gun Kelly

Mac Miller’s brother, Miller McCormick, made it clear that the name of the new movie “Good News,” starring Machine Gun Kelly, infuriated him.   

 McCormick didn’t like the movie named after the later rapper’s first posthumous single, so he took his frustration out on IG in his story. “F**k you, f**k your movie, change the title.” 

Initially, the movie directed and written by Tim Sutton, was presumed to be based on the lives of deceased rappers such as Pop Smoke, Lil Peep, Mac Miller, and Juice WRLD, and others, they will honor Miller McCormick’s request by changing the name of the movie. 

But according to a statement released by the film company that assumption is false.

“Our film is about a fictional musician on the rise with a troubled life. It’s not in any way a biopic or based on any artist’s true life. We realize the title, which was intended as an homage to Mac Miller, and other artists gone too soon, feels disrespectful. We’ve heard from many people on social media who have found offense with the title so, without hesitation, we will change it.”

The now-untitled film is still set to kick off production on July 8 in Los Angeles.

Mac Miller Fund Establishes $75K Grants For BIPOC Artists

Mac Miller Fund

The Mac Miller Fund is continuing to give back to the Pittsburgh community. 

This month, the Mac Miller Fund announced plans to award 75 micro-grants of one-thousand-dollars each to Black, Indigenous and People of Color artists.  The “What’s The Use” rapper and producer’s fund was started in 2018 by his family shortly after the accidental overdose of Malcolm McCormick, professional known as Mac Miller.

Organizers say those within Pennsylvania counties such as Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Butler, Fayette and  more are eligible for the grants.  Applications for the program are open from now until July 23rd and winners will be informed by September 1st the latest.

As reported on The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, The Mac Miller Fund’s first two grant recipients each received $50,000 in May 2019. They were awarded through the Hope Academy of Music and the Arts, an after-school arts education outreach program at East Liberty Presbyterian Church, and MusiCares, a California-based charity of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences to assist musicians in need.

“The BIPOC Artist Micro-Grant program is a way for the foundation to carry forward Mac Miller’s creative and artistic legacy and his family’s vision for helping artists, particularly younger artists, recognize their full potential,” Kelly Uranker, vice president of the Pittsburgh Foundation’s Center for Philanthropy, said in a statement.

Grants will be practice-based, so recipients can use the awards on whatever they choose. The microgrants’ distribution will be determined by a committee that will include BIPOC artists. Applicants will be informed of decisions by Sept. 1.

Mac Miller’s Drug Dealers Receive Trial Date

Screen Shot 2021 06 07 at 11.11.16 AM

A recent report from AllHipHop has confirmed that the dealers that provided Pittsburgh slang spitter, Mac Miller, with the lethal dose of fentanyl; took the rapper’s life at the tender age of 26 in 2018.

The three codefendants, Stephen “Stevie” Walter, Cameron James Pettit and Ryan Reavis, are set to begin the trial for the death of Miller on November 16, 2021. All three were indicted on federal drug distribution charges and are currently being held in custody without bond.

United States Attorney Nick Hanna said of the trio’s trial, “These defendants allegedly continued to sell narcotics after Mr. McCormick’s death with full knowledge of the risks their products posed to human life.” Hanna continued saying, “It has become increasingly common for us to see drug dealers peddling counterfeit pharmaceuticals made with fentanyl. As a consequence, fentanyl is now the No. 1 cause of overdose deaths in the United States.”
