Titled Circles, the album was originally intended to be a companion to his 2018 LP Swimming. The concept was to fuse the projects as a nod to the phrase “swimming in circles.”

In a statement released by his family, they said:

“Here we are. The act of having to write this at all feels surreal. At the time of his passing, Malcolm was well into the process of recording his companion album to ‘Swimming,’ entitled ‘Circles.'”

“This is a complicated process that has no right answer. No clear path. We simply know that it was important to Malcolm for the world to hear it,” their statement continued.

They explained that music producer Jon Brion had committed to completing the album in honour of the rapper.

“We are left to imagine where Malcolm was going and to appreciate where he was,” they finished.

“We hope you take the time to listen. The look on his face when everyone was listening said it all.”

Mac passed away on September 7th 2018 due to an accidental drug overdose after taking fentanyl, cocaine, and alcohol.
