Less than a week before the rapper Mac Miller's untimely death on Friday, he gave his last performance at a small venue in Hollywood on September 3.
The rapper's team had posted a video of the performance to YouTube on Thursday, just a day before his death. In the video, Miller performs his song "Hurt Feelings." Some of the lyrics are especially poignant considering the circumstances. He sings:
We only just begun
No, we don't wanna hurt your feelings
I was only just begun
The song also alludes to Miller's struggle with depression, saying "Used to be feelin' depressed, now that I'm living and I'm feeling obsessed." The rapper recently opened up to Vulture about his 'natural lows,' saying:
I really wouldn’t want just happiness, and I don’t want just sadness either. I don’t want to be depressed. I want to be able to have good days and bad days … I can’t imagine not waking up sometimes and being like, ‘I don’t feel like doing shit.’ And then having days where you wake up and you feel on top of the world.
