Ten years ago, Mac Miller’s K.I.D.S hit the scene, establishing the young Pittsburgh emcee as one to watch in the game. And while it can’t be denied that the late artist evolved — even improved — with time, the simple charm of his youthful output remains a breath of fresh air. Today marks the release of Mac’s K.I.D.S Deluxe Edition, which unlike the average Deluxe drop of today, actually feels like a tasteful and necessary treat for the fans. With two brand new tracks from the album’s nostalgic era, Mac’s early style has a chance to shine once more on the smooth “Back In The Day.”

As tends to be the case when listening to Mac Miller, a bittersweet feeling tends to be evoked. Hearing him rap about the simple pleasures of receiving free jeans and free weed with such a carefree demeanor. “Used to think that I was too short or too dumb, just a newcomer to the game tryna do something,” he raps. “Used to runnin’ after ice cream trucks, but now I just stroll, lacе my Nike’s up.” Reflections of a young man coming up in the world, basking in the fresh warmth of validation.

Lyrics

[Chorus]
Back in the day, when it was a dream
Nobody believed in what I could be
But now I’m laughin’ at ’em like, “Ha-ha-ha”
‘Cause I’ma be okay
Back in the day, when it was a dream
Nobody believed in what I could be
But now I’m laughin’ at ’em like, “Ha-ha-ha”
‘Cause I’ma be okay

[Verse 1]
I used to have a dream, now it seem that I’ma live it in real life
Gettin’ free jeans, good weed, feelin’ real nice
Used to think that I was too short or too dumb
Just a newcomer to the game tryna do somethin’
Used to runnin’ after ice cream trucks
But now I just stroll, lace my Nikes up
I’m a nice, clean cut, good lookin’ individual
Fillin’ up a notebook with rhymes when I be in the school
Learn quick that nobody here invincible
We feel big, but in reality, we minuscule
Try and make a million bucks before I reach my pinnacle
Supernova status from basically invisible
Growin’ up thinkin’ it was cool to be a criminal
Until I saw a couple homies go down
See, now that isn’t me or anything I’m finna be
I want the money, cars, hoes, clothes, a kid can dream
I used to talk to girls that wasn’t even into me
Now they hit me up wantin’ intimacy
But nah, I got a girl and she down for me
My little Juliet chillin’ on the balcony
If I need it, she gon’ run a hundred miles for me
Love me for me, not who I’m ’bout to be
And if they didn’t believe, then I can do without ’em
‘Cause at the end of the day I’m just Malcolm

[Chorus]
Back in the day, when it was a dream
Nobody believed in what I could be
But now I’m laughin’ at ’em like, “Ha-ha-ha”
‘Cause I’ma be okay
Back in the day, when it was a dream
Nobody believed in what I could be
But now I’m laughin’ at ’em like, “Ha-ha-ha” (Yeah)
‘Cause I’ma be okay (Hey, hey)

[Verse 2]
Just a little snotty nose tryna find his pot of gold
Stayin’ up late on the phone, always callin’ hoes
Never thought I’d blow, no one took me serious
Now they see me walkin’ down the street like, “Oh, there he is”
As a kid, anything was possible
But mama knows the hottest flow don’t put me on the honor roll
Grades started slippin’, the classes I be skippin’
Tried to tell me that I was a fool, I wouldn’t listen, no
As a youngin’ I was playin’ pretend
My wonder years, never woulda thought they could end
Back, back in my glory days, way before the haze
A good night sleep had me energized for the day
When I would look up at the planets in they orbit
Before this life got distorted
Before the money was a plan
Before I ever thought that I would need to be a man
Somethin’ like a Peter Pan, nah, I ain’t tryna grow up
‘Cause bein’ old sucks, I just wanna go nuts
Before I drank a beer or ever took a hit of weed
When entertainment was my mom’s readin’ mysteries
Takin’ you back to them nursery rhymes
When I thought the world just deserved to be mine
Said I’m takin’ you back to them nursery rhymes
Back to the beginning, put the verse in rewind

[Chorus]
Back in the day, when it was a dream
Nobody believed in what I could be
But now I’m laughin’ at ’em like, “Ha-ha-ha”
‘Cause I’ma be okay
Back in the day, when it was a dream
Nobody believed in what I could be
But now I’m laughin’ at ’em like, “Ha-ha-ha”
‘Cause I’ma be okay

[Post-Chorus]
Back in the day, when it was a dream
Nobody believed in what I could be
But now I’m laughin’ at ’em like, “Ha-ha-ha”
I’m laughin’ at ’em like, “Ha-ha-ha”

[Outro]
Haha, yeah
So this goes out to
Any of y’all, haha
That ain’t tryna get old, haha
