Thundercat pays tribute to his late friend Mac Miller with the song “Fair Chance” featuring Ty Dollar $ign and Lil B. The somber music reflects the changes Thundercat felt when Miller passed. He says,
“This song is about Mac… 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.”
“Fair Chance” is the third single to emerge from Thundercat’s upcoming album It Is What It Is. Flying Lotus produced the album that has appearances from Childish Gambino, BADBADNOTGOOD, Louis Cole, Zack Fox, and Kamasi Washington. Thundercat’s North American and European tours have been postponed because of the coronavirus outbreak but will be rescheduled.
