Reports indicate Mac wrote, produced and completed “Self Care” last year.
“Can’t trust no one, can’t even trust yourself yeah
And I love you, I don’t love nobody else, yeah
Tell them they can take that bullshit elsewhere
Self care, I’m treatin’ me right
Hell yea, we’re gonna be alright”
One thing’s for certain: it does seem genuine for someone to harbor this sentiment and release it to the world unless they were undergoing a breakup. As a doodler myself, I see no reason to “novelize” short-lived feelings, especially if I were living under ever-evolving conditions. Of course creativity and experience are not mutually assured, and more often than not, epiphany strikes when you least expect it.
