The estate of the late rapper Mac Miller has released an official statement condemning the release of an unauthorized book about his life. Titled Most Dope: The Extraordinary Life of Mac Miller, which was recently made available for pre-order, comes just two weeks after the Miller estate announced their own book in celebration of the artist.

According to the statement, Most Dope by Paul Cantor, was not “authorized or endorsed by Malcolm’s family.” The family also said that the book “has has been written by a writer who had no meaningful access to those that were closest to Malcom—friends, family and collaborators etc. In fact, the writer of this book was made aware at the outset of the process of writing this book that the family and friends of Malcom were uncomfortable with him authoring this biography. Yet he chose to proceed against our polite insistence that he not do disservice to Malcom’s legacy through writing a book without legitimate primary sources.” The family ends the statement urging fans “who wish to support Malcom and his legacy” to “abstain from purchasing this new book.”

The Miller estate’s book, titled The Book of Mac: Remembering Mac Miller is written by Donna-Claire Chesman with the help of some of Miller’s closest friends and collaborators. Some of them include his Most Dope Family in Pittsburgh, Wiz Khalifa, Thundercat, Syd, Big Jerm, Rex Arrow and many more. This book is set to release this October 2021.
