Malcolm James McCormick (January 19, 1992 – September 7, 2018), known professionally as Mac Miller, was an American rapper, singer, and record producer.
In 2010, he signed a record deal with Pittsburgh-based indie record label Rostrum Records. He subsequently began recording his debut studio album Blue Slide Park, and released it on November 8, 2011. The album went on to debut at number one on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart, making it the first independently distributed debut album to top the chart since Tha Dogg Pound's 1995 album, Dogg Food.
In early 2013, Miller launched REMember Music, his own record label imprint, named after a friend who died. Miller's second album, Watching Movies with the Sound Off, was released on June 18, 2013. In January 2014, Miller announced he was no longer signed to Rostrum Records. In October 2014, it was reported Miller signed a record deal for him and his label REMember, with Warner Bros. Records. He also served as a record producer under the pseudonym Larry Fisherman, producing music for SZA, Vince Staples, Lil B, Ab-Soul, Riff Raff, Smoke DZA, and himself.
He is also known as Larry Fisherman, Malcolm McCormick and Malcolm James McCormick.
Miller died of a drug overdose in his Studio City home on September 7, 2018. He was found unresponsive around noon that day, after a friend called for an "immediate dispatch" for a man in cardiac arrest, according to a 911 call. Miller was pronounced dead at the scene upon arrival of authorities. He was scheduled for a video shoot on the day of his death. An autopsy was done, but the cause of death was not officially released by his family members. On September 11 thousands of fans held a vigil in honour of the late rapper at Pittsburgh’s Blue Slide Park in respect to Miller’s 2011 debut album of the same name. Miller was buried at Homewood Cemetery in his hometown of Pittsburgh, in a Jewish funeral. On November 5, 2018, the L.A. County Coroner’s office announced Miller died from an accidental drug overdose due to a "mixed drug toxicity" of fentanyl, alcohol, and cocaine.
