Mac Miller Fans Held a Beautiful Hometown Vigil In Blue Slide Park

Mac Miller got a touching hometown send-off on Tuesday night (September 11) at Pittsburgh’s Frick Park, where thousands of fans attended a vigil for the late rapper.

The location was chosen for its significance to Miller: His 2011 debut album was named after the park’s playground, known as Blue Slide Park, located just a couple blocks from the high school he went to. Miller spoke about the park in a 2012 interview with MTV News, saying, “No matter what happens in life, no matter where you go, where you’re off to, what happens with the park, that slide will always be blue. That will always be Blue Slide Park, no matter what.”

On Tuesday morning, Pittsburgh Public Works applied a fresh coat of blue paint on the famous slide, and fans gathered around it that evening, filling the playground with flowers, candles, artwork, and Steelers jerseys. According to local reports, a petition was even passed around to request that the name of the playground be changed to “Mac Miller Blue Slide Park.”

Miller’s grandmother Marcia Weiss was on hand at the vigil (wearing a Blue Slide Park album art sweatshirt) and thanked the crowd for giving her grandson a beautiful tribute. “Everybody, he would be so excited, he wished he was here and I wish he was here,” she said. “But he loves you all, he loves Pittsburgh and everything that you have done for him. Thank you so much for everybody being here. You were wonderful.”

Miller passed away on September 7 of a reported overdose and was pronounced dead at his home in Los Angeles. He was 26 years old. See more photos and videos from the vigil below.


Lil Yachty And His Crew Take Over A Desert Trailer Park In New ‘Count Me In’ Video

Fresh off the release of Lil Boat 2, Lil Yachty has dropped a desert-set video for album standout “Count Me In.”

In the Nick Roney-directed vid, Yachty ventures to the sands with his Sailing Team crew, which apparently now includes Danielle Bregoli, a.k.a. Bhad Bhabie, a.k.a. the “Cash Me Outside” girl. She appears around the 36-second mark, squatting next to Yachty outside of a bright yellow trailer. Guess her cameo hints at an official Yachty co-sign?

Elsewhere in the grainy vid, there’s a guy swinging a samurai sword, a couple boxers duking it out, and, for some disturbing reason, a cat hanging from a tree branch. Meanwhile, Yachty models his finest pair of overalls while he and his crew take over a skate park and drive ATVs through the sand dunes. Just your average desert hang.

For more from Lil Yachty, check out his recent, Lil Boat 2-centric interview with MTV News below.

Kanye West Still Perplexed By Fish Sticks Joke On South Park Finale

By Sowmya Krishnamurthy

Fish Sticks returns! After being called a gay fish on South Park in 2009, Kanye West was once again featured on the animated show this week. A cartoon version of Ye (not voiced by him) appeared in last night’s season finale to defend the reputation of his love Kim Kardashian and denounce rumors that she’s a Hobbit.

Kanye appeared on-screen as the continuation of 2009′s “fishsticks” meme. “OK, first of all, I am not Aquaman, I am a recovering gay fish,” said the voice of Kanye. “Yes, I have met Aquaman, I have hung out with Aquaman, but the only thing I have in common with Aquaman is my love of the sea.”

As South Park fans remember, back in season 13, Yeezy became a gay fish after he mistook an aquatic penis joke. Yeezy was perplexed, being a genius and the “voice of a generation,” and returned to the sea.

The real-life Kanye found the animated joke pretty funny. ” ‘South Park’ murdered me last night, and it’s pretty funny. It hurts my feelings, but what can you expect from ‘South Park?’” he wrote on his blog at the time. “I actually have been working on my ego. … Having the crazy ego is played out at this point in my life and career. I used to use it to build up my esteem when nobody believed in me. Now that people do believe and support my music, the best response is ‘Thank you’ instead of ‘I told you so!’
