Mac Miller Memorial To Be Held At Pittsburgh's Blue Slide Park
The park inspired his first studio album, 2011's "Blue Slide Park".
Pittsburgh, PA – While fans of Mac Miller have already begun the celebration of the end of the life of the musician on Pittsburgh's Blue Slide Park, an official memorial is scheduled for Tuesday (September 11).
On the Facebook event page, the organizers of the event explained their intention behind the commemoration.
"We would like to bring to the city in full force this legendary icon," the description reads. "Mac deserves to be thrown out with a night of celebration of her life, talking about their struggles, and remembering their stories; what is more important for his iconic work that brought joy to the lives of all who listened."
Miller first studio album, 2011's Blue Slide Park, was named after the Pittsburgh park, where he spent much of his time to grow. In a 2013 interview, he admitted the criticism the project received was one of the reasons he started the use of promethazine, which is also known as slim.
"I love lean; it's great," he said at the time. "I was not happy and I was on lean very heavy ... I was so fucked up all the time was bad. My friends could not even look at me the same. I was lost.
"Many of the comments were more on me as a person. To be honest, that was even worse. You're 19, you're so excited to get their first album, put it out and no one has respect for you or for what you did."
Miller died last Friday (7 of September) of a suspected drug overdose at his home in the San Fernando Valley. While conducting its investigation, according to reports, the police said that the house was clean of any drug paraphernalia.
An official toxicology report is pending.
