Mac Miller‘s last feature, self-produced loosie Diablo, found the Pittsburgh representative struggling with dark thoughts on the topic of mortality.

Inspired by a documentary titled Birds of the Gods (whose Avian imagery is also incorporated into the video), the record showcases Miller’s philosophical side, as well as his knack for blunted punchline lyricism. His sage, yet scatterbrained bars come backed by the wavy string/keyboard loops of alter-ego Larry Fisherman.
