Listen: Thundercat releases somber new track as tribute to Mac Miller

'It Is What It Is' drops on April 3

As a tribute to his late friend Mac Miller, Thundercat has dropped the track “Fair Chance,” featuring Ty Dolla $ign and Lil B. The song is featured on his upcoming album It Is What It Is is, out April 3rd.

The two have always had a close relationship. Thundercat was set to join The Swimming Tour as Miller’s bassist before his passing.

“This song is about Mac,” Thundercat explains. “When he passed it shook the ground for the artist community. 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.”
