One of the biggest projects to drop on new music Friday last week was Young Thug‘s PUNK. Among the stacked list of features on the project, we were most surprised to see that Mac Miller with a guest verse on the final track, “Day Before.” In a recent interview with The Breakfast Club, Young Thug reveals that they in fact recorded the track the day before Mac Miller’s death.
As many of us know, Mac Miller died of an accidental overdose on September 8, 2018. Here’s what Young Thug says, directly from the interview:
I was with Mac the day before he died. He was at my studio. We did the song on my album. This shit is so crazy, but coincidental. He came to the studio—did a song. The next day, he died. And the song we did at the studio, the name of the song is “Day Before.” Shit crazy.
