SOTD: Self care

I have never been a HUGE Mac fan but this new song dropped today and I really like it. It’s very reflective of his breakup with Ariana Grande, her recent engagement to Pete Davidson, and Mac’s DUI. His world has been flipping around and changes have been happening and he feels heartbroken on the track. He encourages the best medicine is self reflection, hence the song title.

This is much less a rap song than it is a mellow song with a catchy melody. Check the video above. 

This song shows evolution of Mac artistically and the video is pretty dope, too. It’s almost a mash up of two tracks together but they go together so well.  The second part, “Oblivion,” has a Cudi style vibe to it, in my opinion...and it’s awesome.

Check the lyrics below: 

[Chorus]
I switched the time zone, but what do I know?
Spending nights hitchhikin', where will I go?
I could fly home with my eyes closed
But it be kinda hard to see, that's no surprise though
You can find me, I ain't hiding
I don't move my feet when I be gliding
I just slide in and then I roll out

[Part II]

[Verse 3]
And I didn't know, I didn't know
I didn't know, I didn't know, hey
Well, didn't know what I was missing, now it see a lil' different
I was, thinking too much
Got stuck in oblivion, yeah, yeah

Oblivion, yeah, yeah
Oblivion, yeah, yeah
I got all the time in the world, so for now I'm just chilling
Plus I know it's a, it's a beautiful feeling
In oblivion, yeah, yeah
Oblivion, yeah, yeah
Oblivion, yeah, yeah
Yeah, okay I ride around my city when I come home
The sun set quickly then get up slow
My disc connect and upload
Watch it spin around, we just spinnin' round
Let's go and travel through the unknown
We play it cool we know we fucked up, yeah
You keep on sayin' you in love, so
Tell me are you really down?
Are you really down? Yeah
Let's go back to my crib and play some 45's
It's safer there, I know there's still a war outside
We spend our nights all liquored up, our mornings high
Can you feel it now?
[Outro]
Oblivion, yeah, yeah
Oblivion, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Oblivion, yeah, yeah
I got all the time in the world, so for now I'm just chilling
Plus, I know it's a
It's a beautiful feeling in oblivion, yeah, yeah
Oblivion yeah, yeah
Oblivion, yeah, yeah

Great track by Mac. Easy Mac with the cheesy raps has come so far.
