Thundercat releases new song about late rapper Mac Miller

“When he passed it shook the ground for the artist community.”

Bass sensation Thundercat has released a new song, Fair Chance, featuring rappers Ty Dolla $ign and Lil B.

The track is a tribute to the late Mac Miller, who passed away in September 2018, and is set to feature on Thundercat’s upcoming LP It Is What It Is, out 3 April. The bassist had been scheduled to open for Miller on tour.

“This song is about Mac… when he passed it shook the ground for the artist community,” Thundercat said in a press release. “Ty’s a strong dude and when he heard the song he knew exactly what it should be. I was there when he recorded it. We talked about what it was, and he did what he felt was right to it, and I love what he did.”

It Is What It Is is a follow-up to 2017’s Drunk. It will include previously released singles such as Black Qualls and Dragonball Durag, and will feature contributions by a host of other artists including Childish Gambino, Kamasi Washington, Steve Lacy, Steve Arrington, BADBADNOTGOOD, Louis Cole and Zack Fox.
