Mac Miller Left Behind A Considerable Fortune
Hip Hop Cash King.
Mac Mill reportedly died with a considerable amount of money. According to Celebrity Net Worth, Miller left behind a fortune worth around $9 million.
The Pittsburgh-bred artist made history in 2011 when he released his debut album Blue Slide Park. It marked the first independently distributed debut to nab the coveted no. 1 on the Billboard 200 since 1995, when Tha Dogg Pound released Dogg Food.
Miller label at the time — Rostrum Records — there was an agreement with iTunes, which obliged them to pay to the streaming platform only 25 percent of album profits, and they got to split the rest.

After he parted ways with the imprint, Miller signed an agreement with Warner Bros for a reported $10 million.
The 26-year-old designed five studio albums — including last month's bath — all of which debuted in the Top 5.
Through the years, Miller became the youngest MC to win a place on Forbes' Hip-Hop Cash Kings list several years in a row.
Miller died Friday (September 7) from a suspected drug overdose. Dozens of fans and peers took to social media to express their grief.
His family issued a statement at the time asking for privacy.
"Malcolm McCormick, known and adored by the fans as Mac Miller, has died tragically at the age of 26 years," the statement read. "It was a bright light in this world for your family, friends and fans. Thank you for your prayers. Please respect our privacy. No more details of the cause of his death at this time."
