“Yinzer” (urban slang for someone who’s a native of Pittsburgh, PA.) Mac Miller, the son of a Gentile father and a Jewish Mother” Miller, whose real name is Malcolm McCormick, uses his Mother’s maiden name. . Died of a drug overdose at age 26 at his home in Studio City… a suburb of Los Angeles. Not only could he shout out the Yamim Nora’im, Mac Miller had some fun at a reference to his best friend.. fellow Jewish rapper..

“Drake is the best Jew in the rap game.” Mac referred to himself as “the coolest Jewish rapper,” and joked about the chances of ending up on a track with Drizzy (Drake).“Yeah man, of course…Drake’s the shit,” Mac said. “We could make a Hanukkah song. Get it? ‘Cause we’re both Jewish.” He talked about having a bar mitzvah and celebrating Jewish holidays growing up. He even has a Star of David tattoo on his hand. No, he’s not related to Matthew Miller aka Mattisyahu, nor is he related to Kenny McCormick, a fictional character on South Park.

But never mind that “Jewy” stuff. While Miller never boasted of having a hit on Top 40 radio, he had a strong following on streaming networks; preferring to stick with “the homie team” – a decision that seems to be a wise one, allowing him to make rapid decisions and cultivate fervent, grass roots support.  He frequently  suggested   of having depression and addiction issues.

There was a call put into the rescue squad and when they arrived Miller was already dead! As horrible as this all was the L.A. police found the home “perfectly clean” of any drugs or paraphernalia with the exception of a small amount of “white powder”…. He had been dead for hours!… What seemed like a death by misfortune has become a crime scene.

Moments after Miller died, fans began attacking former girlfriend Ariana Grande  on social media for allegedly being responsible for his demise. She took major heat after the breakup with Miller when it was rumored she had many rendezvous  with SNL star, and now fiancé, Pete Davidson. Grande was forced to turn off the posts on her Instagram. Earlier this year he was arrested for a DUI/Hit and run…
