This past September marked two years since the tragic passing of Mac Miller. The rapper’s death is among the major losses in the realm of hip-hop experienced in the past few years alone. Mac touched many people, from his fans to friends and collaborators, so it’s a sore spot whenever his name is brought up, regardless of the intent. TDE’s REASON was under fire over the weekend following the release of New Beginnings.
“Look, you said you wanna be an artist/Well, we gon’ turn you to an addict/Get rid of the n***as that you got on with/Then give you the tools to dig your own shit/Surround you with some wack n***as/Some yes men that’s gon’ tell you that your raps iller/A couple cars, some jewelry, make your stacks bigger/Then one day you could become the next Mac Miller,” he raps on “Fall.”
Ahead of its release, he sat down with Bootleg Kev who predicted some might have issues with the lyric. Reason explained that he has love for Mac Miller and there was no ill intent behind the lyrics. Noting that he loves Mac Miller, he said that he prides himself on being honest. The point of the lyric wasn’t to shame anyone who suffers from addiction but rather, shed light on a prevalent issue that hasn’t been addressed.
“It’s for the people that’s gon’ say, ‘Well, it’s just these artists that are affected by it.’… It’s not just the Lil’s,” he explained. “He was like one of the greats. And a great kid and a great guy and a nice guy. And this industry, in my opinion, you know what I mean? Destroyed him… It’s not just the young boys. And that’s the reason why I did it. I was like, there’s a chance that I can catch some flack but I feel like this is so important for people to understand is that it’s not just the lils.”
Though the delivery of what he said may have been rough, he explained that Mac was someone who came into the industry young. And there needs to be a change because many childhood stars resort to drugs at some point due to the horrors of the industry.

Biodegradable Urns for a Sustainable Farewell Which Honors Nature’s Cycle
The world is increasingly becoming more conscious of environmental impact over time. And from the metal straws of our drinks to the paper tote bags we carry, almost all essentials of daily life are moving towards sustainability. Now, even our final farewells are evolving. Biodegradable urns, offered by Premium Urns, an Australian-owned and operated company with over 12 years of experience, are designed to provide a more eco-friendly and meaningful way to say goodbye to our loved ones.
Biodegradable Urns for Various Purposes
Biodegradable urns come in various forms to suit different purposes and preferences. At Premium Urns, they offer an array of biodegradable options, each serving a unique role:
- Bio Scattering Urns: These urns are crafted from biodegradable materials such as cardboard and are designed for scattering ashes in natural settings like beaches or mountains. They provide a beautiful and eco-conscious way to release the ashes, allowing the remains to return to nature.
- Ground Burial Bio Cremation Urns: Designed for more traditional ground burials, these urns are made from biodegradable materials that can peacefully merge with the earth over time. They are an excellent choice for those who prefer a more conventional resting place for their loved ones.
- Water Burial Bio Cremation Urns: If the intention is to release ashes at sea, Premium Urns offers a specialized selection of water urns. These urns are crafted to gracefully submerge in deep ocean waters when released off the side of a boat. They ensure a serene and eco-friendly final voyage for your loved one.
Choosing the Right Biodegradable Urns
Selecting the right biodegradable urn is a thoughtful process, but you must consider the following factors while making your choice:
- Location: Think about where you wish to scatter or bury the ashes. The type of urn you choose should also align with the chosen location, whether it’s a beach, a mountaintop, the soil, or the sea.
- Material: Biodegradable urns are made from eco-friendly materials that will breakdown in their final environment. While choosing your material, make sure that it resonates with your environmental values.
- Purpose: Consider the intended purpose of the urn. If you plan to scatter the ashes, a scattering urn is ideal. If a traditional styleground burial is your preference, opt for a ground burial biodegradable urn.
- Specialized Water Urns: If you plan a sea burial, be sure to select from the ‘Water’ cremation urns specifically designed for this purpose. These urns are engineered to sink slowly, allowing for a dignified and eco-conscious release.
