I can’t believe this is the last time I’m going to be posting about Mac Miller.
If you’ve been living under a rock, news broke out yesterday that the Pittsburgh rapper had passed away due to an apparent drug overdose. 🙁
And if you’ve kept up to date with #the5to9life, you’ll know that “SWIMMING” had a major impact on me.
Four days prior to his passing, Mac Miller played a special intimate set to a crowd of 100 people at the Hotel Café in Hollywood.
One song, ‘Hurt Feelings,’ was released as a promotional video to help promote Miller’s latest album “Swimming,” which was released early last month.
The four-piece band that accompanies him on the song brings a jazzier groove than the album version, which was produced by the rapper with Jon Brion and Blood Orange founder Dev Hynes. According to a setlist that appears early in the video, Miller performed at least 12 songs during the set.
I’m still in shock.
Rest in Peace, Mac. <3
