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.
