It’s been a month since Mac Miller was found dead in his Studio City home of an apparent overdose. His family released a statement today addressing some fraudulent fundraising events happening in recent weeks, disguised as tributes to the rapper. A rep for the McCormick family issued a statement on their behalf warning fans about the unofficial events they say, are appreciated but are not connected to Mac.
“The family of Malcolm McCormick, known best to the world as Mac Miller, has become aware of a number of fraudulent events recently announced under the guise of fundraising for causes on his behalf. It should be known that the only event sanctioned by his family and contributing to The Mac Miller Circles Fund is the “Mac Miller: A Celebration Of Life” event taking place in Los Angeles on October, 31. While the intent of further celebrating Malcolm’s life through these various efforts is appreciated, it is important that it be known to paying fans which of these are official or not. For all official Mac Miller news and information please refer to tmmcf.org”
Last Week Mac’s Mother Karen Meyers, announced Mac Miller: A Celebration of Life, a benefit concert set for later this month at the Greek in Los Angeles. The show will feature performances artists such as Travis Scott, SZA, Vince Staples, Ty Dolla Sign, John Mayer, and more. All ticket proceeds are being donated to The Mac Miller Circles Fund, who assists young people in underserved communities and provides them with access to resources related to creativity and community building. There are still about 60 tickets still available for the show that are going for upwards of $950 each—ouch. Take a look at her instagram post with the full lineup below.
