Filmmaker CJ Wallis is currently in the development stage of a documentary honoring the late Mac Miller.
Miller was a celebrated rapper and recording artist before his untimely passing back on September 7, 2017. The rapper died of a fentanyl and cocaine overdose in his Los Angeles home. His death was ruled as an accident by the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner. Prior to his death, he dated pop music icon, Ariana Grande. The pair even made music together including The Way and Cold.
The rapper has made significant contributions in hip-hop despite his unconventional image. Now, Wallis is made an announcement posted on Twitter about the upcoming documentary on the rapper.
In the post, Wallis wrote:
“So, over the next year I’m going to start collecting interviews & content to make the definitive @MacMiller documentary for his family, friends & fans… Please share & tag anyone you think we need to speak with!”
Fans of Miller have expressed their appreciation for the documentary saying “Please, we need this.” and “thank you for this ❤️”
