Mac Miller's death came so unexpectedly, and at such a high point in his career, that his family is now tasked with finding out how much his estate is worth and what exactly the young star left behind.
On November 26, documents were filed in the "Small World" rapper's estate requesting a judge to appoint a probate referee who can appraise the assets of Miller's estate, including cash, real estate and personal property.
The documents reveal the estate has not been able to figure out how much money was left behind, the value of his royalties or how much his name and likeness is worth in death.
The appraiser is also expected to give an estimate of how much Miller's music royalties may be worth in the future. Once a value is given, the estate may be closer to figuring out which beneficiaries, including the late rapper's brother and parents, will receive.
As we reported, an attorney has already been approved by the court as the representative for the estate. He was actually put in place by Miller himself when the hip-hop star set up a trust in 2013.
Miller's brother is also named as a trustee, along with his parents. Since the rapper's death in September, he has been buried at a cemetery near his hometown in Pittsburgh.
