According to the official statement, the rapper’s estate has become aware of several false fundraisers that are capitalizing on Miller’s untimely death. The statement goes on to note that the only sanctioned event is the Mac Miller: A Celebration Of Life memorial taking place at the Greek in Los Angeles, California later this month. The memorial will feature performances from Travis Scott, Chance the Rapper, Earl Sweatshirt, Ty Dolla $ign, SZA, John Mayer and more. All tickets proceeds will be donated to The Mac Miller Circles Fund, an organization that assists youth in underserved communities by providing them with access to resources related to creativity and community building.
