Many were up in arms over Reason's new song "Fall" because he mentioned Mac Miller and his battle with drugs.
The TDE rapper spoke to Bootleg Kev about the cut before it dropped since he anticipated that he'd get some backlash. Miller passed away from a drug overdose in 2018.
"Look, you said you wanna be an artist / Well, we gon' turn you to an addict / Get rid of the n*ggas that you got on with / Then give you the tools to dig your own sh*t / Surround you with some wack n*ggas / 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 / Here's your chance, n*gga, sign here," rapped Reason on "Fall."
But the Carson, California spitter said he meant no disrespect to Miller on the song and just wanted to show that not only the young SoundCloud rappers battle drug addiction in the music industry. [Jump to 1:25 mark].
"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 Lils," Reason 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."
