Mac Miller fans have organized a vigil to commemorate the late rapper in his hometown of Pittsburgh at Frick Park a.k.a. Blue Slide Park on September 11. The 26-year-old grew up going to the park, which is known for its signature blue side, and was so fond of it that he used the name for the title of his 2011 debut album. The description for the official event page reads as follows:

"We would like to bring the city together in full force for this legendary icon. Mac deserves to be sent off with an evening of celebrating his life, discussing his struggles, and remembering his stories; most importantly for his iconic work that brought joy into the lives of everybody who listened."

Last week, Miller passed away from a suspected drug overdose. Since the shocking news of his death broke, fans have been paying their respects at a temporary memorial site at the corner of Fairfax and Melrose Avenue in West Hollywood. Many of his friends in the industry such as Chance the Rapper, John Mayer, J. Cole and Aminé have publicly expressed their grief over the loss on social media. The rapper's family released a statement to confirm his death.

For more information about the vigil, visit the event page on Facebook.
