Young Thug’s latest album, Punk, has a belated Mac Miller feature, which was recorded shortly before Mac’s unfortunate demise a couple of years ago.
Young Thug discusses his last moments with Mac Miller
Young Thug said during a discussion with The Breakfast Club radio show on Monday (October 19) that both he and Mac Miller recorded “Day Before” just before the Pittsburgh rapper passed away from a suspected drug overdose on September 8, 2018.
“I was with Mac [Miller] the day before he died,” Young Thug started. “He was at my studio. We did the song on my album. This shit so crazy, but coincidental. He came to the studio, did a song. The next day, he died. And the song that we did at the studio, the name of the song is ‘Day Before.’ Shit crazy.”
Young Thug then continued to talk about track No.20. “But the song is just about women,” he continued. “Like…Back then they didn’t want me, now I’m hot, they all…It was like, flamboyant. Yeah, ‘Day Before.’ This nigga died the next day, bro.”
While questioned if he thinks about his final moments of Mac Miller, although he didn’t realize this was the last time they’d get together, the Atlanta rapper said yes.
“Yeah, I think deep on that because it’s…is that a sign?” Young Thug told morning show co-hosts Charlamagne Tha God and Angela Yee.
Before disclosing these details concerning his friendship with Mac Miller, Young Thug discussed his connection with Juice Wrld, who died of an overdose in December 2019 after experiencing a seizure at Chicago’s Midway Airport. On the track “Rich Nigga Shit,” Juice makes a farewell appearance on the record.
Young Thug also revealed how he has not yet digested the losses of Mac and Juice, but also that he feels he’s actively avoiding facing the feelings associated with their deaths.
Punk, the latest album from Young Stoner Life Records, was released on Friday (October 18th). Young Thug, on the other hand, certainly didn’t come at midnight that day, unlike some of the other initiatives. Eventually, about 3 a.m., his album was released on DSPs.
