Just hours before his tragic death at the age of 26-years-old, Mac Miller, born Malcolm James McCormick, posted what would be his last Instagram story: the outro on the last song of his last album.
The song, ‘So It Goes’, is the 13th and final track on Miller’s final album Swimming, which was released on August 3, 2018, to critical acclaim.
The lyrics of the final verse are “just like a circle, I go back where I’m from.”
McCormick passed away on Friday, September 7 due to an apparent overdose. TMZ reports that he was found around noon in a bedroom at his San Fernando Valley home. His family released the following statement after his death:
“Malcolm McCormick, known and adored by fans as Mac Miller, has tragically passed away at the age of 26. He was a bright light in this world for his family, friends and fans. Thank you for your prayers. Please respect our privacy. There are no further details as to the cause of his death at this time.”
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and loved ones at this time. Thank you for everything, Malcolm. May you rest in peace.
