Mac Miller

Emerging rapper Seth Hirsch went to the vault to let go of a new song featuring a posthumous assist from the late Mac Miller. The bittersweet "Say Goodbye" was released via Audiomack on Wednesday (Feb. 13), before the track becomes widely available at midnight ET.

Mac delivers an intoxicating hook, which spills into an extended verse. "Living with a heart that's broken/ We know how that feel/ We always caught up in the moment/ And this ain't no drill, one shot one kill/ Just pop one pill, you'll be good by the morning," he gently rhymes. The tune sees production from Nottz, who previously collaborated with the Swimming artist numerous times on tracks like "Pet Sounds" and "Walkin' Home."

"The song’s about toxic relationships, and dealing with someone who's shitty towards [you], sucks up all your energy, and keeps taking advantage of your time and emotions," the Cincinnati native told Complex of the song's inspiration. "After Mac passed away, I realized this song was about a lot more than that. It's really about struggling to say goodbye to our personal demons and the chains they put on us. ... This song is such a window into Mac Miller's soul and what he was going through."

Mac Miller was found dead on Sept. 7 inside his California home. The death was later ruled an accidental overdose of fentanyl, cocaine and alcohol, as determined by a toxicology report done by the the Los Angeles County Coroner's office.
