Mac Miller notes that Benji The Canine was leaked online eight months after the rapper's death at age 26


An unreleased track by Mac Miller, entitled Benji The Dog, was leaked on the Soundcloud streaming site on Monday.

The rapper, who died at the age of 26, on 7 September 2018 following a fatal overdose of alcohol, cocaine and fentanyl, sampled the 1972 track by Valerie Simpson, Benjie.

The song also used a soundtrack from the 2016 FX miniseries The People V. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story, by David Schwimmer as Robert Kardashian who uttered the phrase: "It will always be the juice".

Miller's track included the texts of his experiences on drug use: "They told me not to make a promise that you can't keep / All the drugs in your system, you can't sleep / How many times have you had to buy a Plan B / For a girl you never take home to meet your family. "

He continued: "Friend, I swear this is what I dream of / Since my mother told me that she needs me outside / Always smoking grass, causing problems, never cleaning the house / But I repaid her for everything, I guess that even now. & # 39;

Sap, a producer who had worked with the late Pittsburgh native, this week told DJ Booth that Miller "gave fans a good deal of work" in creating a complete catalog before his premature death: "The things that put out, it's a full career for someone else. & # 39;

Sap said that Miller was picky about the material he released, from what he had piled up in the recording studio.

"There are many records I have, I don't even know the projects they come from," he said. "I feel like it's someone who put out everything that had to be out, you know? I feel like I gave the fans the right music.

"I'm sure many fans want more Mac music, especially if it's your favorite artist."

About a month before his death, Miller released his album Swimming, which went on to receive a Grammy nomination.
