Fans gather at the Mac Miller vigil to commemorate the late legend.

It was quite heartbreaking to see headlines flowing with Mac Miller’s untimely death last Friday. The entire industry has been shook in 2018, losing Lil Peep, XXXTentacion, and Mac all under a year.

Fans have been trying their best to pull it together, and his hometown heroes really came through on this one. Yesterday Nightfall Records held a vigil to pay respects to the rapper, right in his hometown of Pittsburgh. You may remember Mac’s 2011 studio album Blue Slide Park, which referred to a playground that he grew up in. This is where the vigil was held.

Mac’s grandmother was in attendance, and even gave a heartbreaking speech reminiscing on her grandson. You can find that video below, along with a few other Tweets relating to Mac’s vigil. Rest in peace to a legend, you’ll be missed Mac.
