Cameron Pettit, 28, of Hollywood Hills was arrested by special agents with the Drug Enforcement Administration and officers with the Los Angeles Police Department. According to documents obtained by TheWrap, Miller asked Petit for "percs", an abbreviation for Percocet, a prescription painkiller containing oxycodone. Now, it has been reported that the man who allegedly supplied drugs to Miller before his death has been arrested. Prosecutors also say that Pettit gave Miller the counterfeit pills two days earlier, and they contained fentanyl, cocaine and Xanax.

Miller first rose to prominence as a teenager in Pittsburgh with a series of mixtapes released in the mid and late 2000s.

Miller, whose real name was Malcolm McCormick, was found dead at his home in Studio City two days later.

According to the affidavit, Pettit and others distributed narcotics to Miller - real name: Malcolm James McCormick - approximately two days before he died of a drug overdose in his Studio City, California, home on September 7, 2018.

Pettit was expected make his initial court appearance Wednesday afternoon in downtown Los Angeles.

Miller was found unresponsive in his Studio City home on September 7, 2018.

Fentanyl is a powerful synthetic opioid 50 times more potent than heroin and 100 times more potent than morphine. The coroner's report found that Miller died from "mixed drug toxicity", including ethanol, fentanyl, and cocaine. They claim that when Pettit had not immediately responded to Mac for a second delivery, he hit up the madam, who sent the prostitute to leave him the additional drugs.

Pettit was arrested pursuant to a criminal complaint filed last Friday that charges him with one count of distribution of a controlled substance, a press release from the United States Attorney Central District of California stated on Wednesday.

"I think I should probably not post anything... just be smart", Pettit allegedly wrote.

There were also messages between Miller and Pettit in the court documents that revealed the details of Pettit's sale to Miller.

He told a friend: "Most likely I will die in jail".
