Miller, whose real name was Malcolm McCormick, was found unresponsive Sept. 7 in his home in Studio City, California. He was 26.
His death has been ruled an accident.
Miller grew up in Point Breeze. He named his first album “Blue Slide Park” in honor of the playground at Frick Park, where he played as a child.
Miller earned his first-ever Grammy nomination for best rap album for "Swimming," his most recent album released just before his death.
