Perhaps the most personal song Mac has ever written, we get an insight into how he feels about his good friend Reuben Mitrani who past away back in 2012. Miller confesses that he used certain drugs to escape the pain he was experiencing, wishes that Reuben had a son & wonder how it was him that died.
I went to my homie’s funeral, this shit kinda gave me a different perspective on everything just because of who he was, on life, and my life and hoe I interact with everything. The first thing I did when I got home was made that song — that’s why I love that song because it is that emotion, it wasn’t written in retrospect, I didn’t wait two months and then made the song. I made the song whilst I still felt — all the shit that haunted me from the funeral was still there.
