When the news of Mac Miller‘s sudden death surfaced, the rap world in which he had bestowed with an inimitable voice, was absolutely devastated.
Now, under the drive of powerhouse producer, Jon Brion, who closely worked with Miller for several years, Circles, the follow-up album to Swimming, is posthumously complete – and as it manifests, the artist’s melodic cycle has finally come full circle.
While Circles was intended to be the second album in a three-part series, according to Brion, the 12-track album which has no features, just Miller – upfront and vulnerable, provides a compelling insight into his ongoing journey of self-discovery; everywhere from facing the complexities of a “Blue World,” where realising “reality’s so hard to find,” amid searching for “someone to save [him]” from his very own construct (“I Can See“).
The talent that is Mac Miller, is far beyond comprehensible, from writing his own lyrics and producing illustrious beats, to distinguishably gifting the world with an alternative rap voice that compels a most diverse audience; his genuine, kind-hearted soul evoked a certain vulnerability that any human being can relate to – an aptness that simply makes him unforgettable.
Circles is the absolute testament to his life’s work… may Mac Miller live on.
