Nyck Caution has stayed quiet since he released his acclaimed mixtape Disguise the Limit in February. This afternoon, he posted a new song called "Eyes Closed" to his SoundCloud in honor of his dad, who passed away one year ago. The heartfelt track features Alex Mali and Freddie Joachim, who produced Joey Bada$$'s "Waves." Caution sharaed a note for his father in conjunction with the song:
"It’s been one year since everything happened and it’s still such a crazy feeling to know you aren’t here anymore," he wrote. "You gave me the courage and determination to keep pushing and it feels almost unfair you’re not here to see it all play out. This song is just my letter to you and to let you know I’ll always keep my head up and eyes open. You’ve done more than you will ever know."
I get drunk all the time, get wasted off your memories
It's been a minute, at this pace you won't remember me
I've had a heard time dealing with the truth
Drink another brew, eyes closed, I can feel your energy
