As part of Rick Rubin’s documentary series Shangi-La, Showtime has released a clip from the third part of the four-part series that showcases Mac Miller discussing his last album, Swimming. As part of the third episode in the series, which arrived Sunday evening, the clip dives into the personal side of Miller’s final project. Though the clip is short, both Rubin and Miller can be seen discussing the making of Swimming before the rapper’s tragic passing in 2018, detailing his vulnerability when it comes to making music that’s authentically his.

In the clip, Miller states that “it’s been an interesting journey for me to realize that the goal here is just to be as much me as possible.” He continued by sharing “that’s the one goal…you know you make this super personal ass, stripped-back song where there’s no bells and whistles and that the only thing that’s carrying the song is you.”

Rubin and Showtime’s series is based around the iconic producer’s Malibu studios and chronicles the people who’ve come in and out, simultaneously showcasing Rubin sitting down and discussing their projects in depth. The final episode is set to debut on August 4.

You can watch the clip with Mac Miller above and peep the final episode’s trailer below.
