Mac Miller’s Posthumous Album ‘Circles’ Released

The project was endorsed by the late performer’s family.

(AllHipHop News) Malcolm “Mac Miller” McCormick passed away on September 7, 2018, just weeks after his Swimming album was released. That LP would not be the last to arrive from the rapper/producer.

Mac Miller was said to be working on a companion project to Swimming before his death. Last week, McCormick’s family announced that Circles would arrive on January 17. Producer Jon Brion finished the LP based on his conversations with Miller.
