    The playground that is part of Frick Park was the site of a large vigil for the rapper after he died last year.

    Miller, 26, died of a drug overdose in his California home last September.

    The Point Breeze native was a popular artist in the hip-hop community who often supported his hometown through his music.

    A former student at Taylor-Alderdice High School, Miller was a proud Pittsburgher who never forgot where he came from, often talking about home in his songs and naming his debut album "Blue Slide Park."
