When profiled by Vogue in 2016, Mac Miller spoke about how he was fighting and trying to get better: “I’m just changing how I live life, my state of mind…When you first get sober you feel like a superhero. You feel real emotion because you’ve been suppressing it forever. It’s so much easier to navigate what’s important.” he said

He spoke about his demons in his music as this was an outlet for him to get better.
