“Malcolm’s family wishes that he could be at home celebrating his birthday with them and being the center of attention like he always was, but they know he is still there in spirit with his big ousmagazinel’ smile,” the insider says. “It’s going to be a hard day for the family.”
The late rapper’s loved ones are depending on each other during this difficult time. “They miss Malcolm more than words can describe, but they are grieving together and surrounding one another with love,” the source adds. “It’s all they can do.”
Miller died at age 26 in September 2018. His cause of death was determined to be mixed drug toxicity. An autopsy confirmed in November 2018 that the Grammy nominee had fentanyl, cocaine and alcohol in his system.
“To say the family is shocked and sad would be an understatement,” a source told Us in September. “They’ll be OK, but the grief they are feeling right now is unimaginable. They’re leaning on one another to cope with this devastating and unexpected loss. The family is very appreciative for all of the love and support they’ve received.”
