Mac Miller’s family has issued a statement speaking out against an upcoming book on the rapper called ‘Most Dope: The Extraordinary Life of Mac Miller'.
The family of the late rapper are condemning the release and state that it is not authorized or endorsed by Mac’s family. Written by Paul Cantor, the author has had no relationship with Mac.
Read a portion of the statement below:
“Furthermore, the writer had no meaningful access to those that were closest to Malcolm—friends, family, 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 Malcolm were uncomfortable with him authoring this biography, yet he chose to proceed against our polite insistence that he not do disservice to Malcolm’s legacy through writing a book without legitimate primary sources”.
They also criticize Cantor for releasing the book on January 18, a day before Mac’s birthday. Read the full statement by clicking here.
