After the rapper Mac Miller’s tragic death last Friday (Sept. 7), 24hrs shared a song titled “Legends (Larry Fisherman)” that opens with a dedication to the Pittsburgh native.
The track, produced by Kabba, AutoLaser and Lastnght, finds 24hrs meditating on the mourning process over a electric guitar riff.
“It’s so hard to say goodbye/Why do every legend gotta die/If they take me up, don’t cry for me/Please don’t cry for me,” 24hrs sings on the hook. Later, he offers the song as his own eulogy, “Listen to this when I’m gone/Tell them to turn up the song.”
Miller, who also released music under the name Larry Fisherman, worked with artists across genres, cities and social circles, including 24hrs’ older brother Madeintyo. The pair collaborated with DJ Carnage on his January single, “Learn How to Watch,” which Miller and Tyo performed in April at the Smoker’s Club show in Long Beach. Madeintyo has also teased a Mac feature on his next album, Sincerely, Tokyo.
