Post Malone is keeping Mac Miller close to his heart.

The “Rockstar” rapper, 23, found a fashion-forward way to honor Miller, who died on Sept. 7 at age 26, on Friday.

When Malone took the stage at the KAABOO Del Mar festival north of San Diego, he wore a shirt adorned with pink, blue and orange flowers that read “RIP Mac Miller,” and his pants were decorated with hearts.

His tribute moved fellow musicians on Instagram. G-Eazy commented with a red heart and Billie Joe Armstrong wrote, “Be kind to yourself.”
