The rapper’s hometown honors its fallen soldier.
While a candle-light vigil was held in honor of Mac Miller at this site, days after his passing, Pittsburgh officially renamed the playground inside Frick Park, Mac Miller’s Blue Slide Park.
Although Mac’s team has yet to announce any official statements regarding the tribute, the park’s new name now even appears across Maps apps.
In addition to the playground hosting his vigil, the late rapper also dedicated his 2011 album to the site; a record-setting album that hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200, becoming the first independently-distributed debut album to do so this century.
