Mac Miller and music producer Rick Rubin discuss the difficulties of getting personal on record, but also the potential rewards that come with that vulnerability, in a poignant clip from the Showtime docuseries “Shangri-La.”
The segment was filmed while Miller was working on what would become his final album, “Swimming,” which was released just a month before he died in September 2018.
In the clip, Rubin compliments Miller on his turn to more “songy, personal” tracks, prompting Miller to reply, “It’s been an interesting journey for me to realize that the goal here is just to be as much me as possible.”
The four-part docuseries offers a glimpse into Rubin’s world as he works and chats with an array of musicians including the Avett Brothers, Lil Yachty, SZA, and Santana.
“Shangri-La” is available now on Showtime.
