Granted, some of the scenery has changed, for instance, the slide isn't quite as blue these days. "When I announced that I was coming out with an album called Blue Slide Park, some vandalizing kids dumped a bucket of red paint down the slide," the 20-year old rapper said with some disappointment.
"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," he said. "You can go to New York and live for 10 years and become a huge business mogul and then come back to the 'Burgh and no matter how much money you got, that slide is still blue."
"The Mac Miller Memoir," a Twitter account memorializing Miller, pointed out Sunday night that when you search for "blue slide park" or "blue slide playground" in the Google Maps app or on the Google Maps website, the name now appears as "Mac Miller's Blue Slide Playground."
