Free Nationals Share Mac Miller's First Posthumous Verse On 'Time'

  Nine months after his death, Mac Miller still hasn't left the mind of the rap world.

  Smooth and strident, the beat on "Time" (also featuring Kali Uchis) is anchored by acoustic guitar and bass.

  "I gotta take some time to grow / But without you I'm miserable," Uchis sings on the chorus, just before Mac Miller's voice cuts through.

  "I don't trip, but I slip, I fall / Sleep all day maybe miss your call / Like I been missing you / Still I continue tied up and trippin' / I'm making the wrong decisions and you sick of it all," Mac Miller rhymes with lethargic, meandering delivery.

  After Kali Uchis and Mac Miller finish their verses, the track rides out on a silky stream of horns before the swift deluge all the way down.
