Prosecutors claimed that Miller asked the dealer for Percoset pills prior to his death. Xanax, cocaine, and fentanyl were found at the rapper’s home. At the time of his death, traces of cocaine, fentanyl, and alcohol were found in his system.

Fentanyl has reportedly been the same drug that contributed to the deaths of Prince, Tom Petty, and raper Lil Peep.
