Mac Miller’s hometown of Pittsburgh honored the late rapper with a touching public vigil last night (September 11th). Fans and loved ones flooded to Frick Blue Slide Park – the location which inspired Miller’s 2011 debut album, Blue Slide Park.
The four-hour memorial allowed attendees to decorate the park’s characteristic blue slides with art, flowers, candles and Pittsburgh Steelers-themed colors as a nod to the late rapper’s choice NFL team. For the event, the famed blue slide also received a fresh coat of blue paint earlier in the day.
Miller passed away on September 7th of a reported overdose and was pronounced dead at his Studio City, California home. He was 26 years old. See emotional footage from the vigil via Pittsburgh’s local CBS news station below.
