A Second Fentanyl Dealer Has Plead Guilty in the Death of Mac Miller

Mac Miller tragically died in 2018 at 26. The rapper died from an accidental drug overdose after mixing fentanyl, cocaine, and alcohol.

Another man has pleaded guilty in helping to supply the drugs that led to Mac Miller’s death in 2018.

Ryan Reavis, who is 38, pled guilty earlier this week to one count of distributing fentanyl, according to the U.S. Department of Justice. Reavis is facing up to 20 years behind bars and a lifetime of supervised release. This comes weeks after Stephen “Stevie” Walter also entered a guilty plea to one count of distribution of fentanyl. (Walter was also charged with conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance but that ended up being dropped after his guilty plea.) 

Mac Miller tragically died on September 7, 2018 the age of 26. According to the Los Angeles County Coroner’s office, Mac Miller died from an accidental drug overdose after mixing fentanyl, cocaine, and alcohol.

By September 2019, three people were arrested in connection with the overdose death of the rapper. According to reports, Miller reached out to Cameron James Pettit for Percocet who then contacted Walter to buy the product. Walter sold Pettit counterfeit pills that contained fentanyl. Reavis acted as a runner in the fatal drug deal.

Last month, Mac Miller’s classic mixtape Faces was released commercially for the first time. The album, which was released October on October 15th, debuted No. 3 on the Top Album Sales.

The album also sold 32,000 on vinyl, making it the largest sales week on vinyl for an R&B/hip-hop album, since we been tracking vinyl sales in 1991.
