One of the most talented artists from the last decade, Malcolm James McCormick, better known as Mac Miller. Recently, his estate announced the release of ‘Faces’, Miller’s much-applauded mixtape on Oct. 15 of this year. 

‘Faces’ was originally released on Mothers Day in 2014 and was available for free download, it featured Rick Ross, ScHoolboy Q, Ab-Soul, Earl Sweatshirt, Thundercat, and more arguably amazing artists. Faces was met with positive reviews upon release and noted for its themes and exploration of psychosis, addiction, and mortality. 

Many regard it as perhaps Mac Miller’s greatest work then, being one of his most unique, jazzy productions under his alter ego Larry Fisherman. 

‘Faces’ is Mac at his most raw and unfiltered. The 24-track, 87-minute project is littered with lyrics that hit especially different now. Ever since the death of Mac Miller in 2018, listening back to certain songs and cutting deep into lyrics, pains those die hard fans. 

“A drug habit like Philip Hoffman will probably put me in a coffin,” he raps on “What Do You Do?” Later, on “Funeral,” he says that “doing drugs is just a war with boredom but they sure to get me.”

Along with the announcement a new music video for the track ‘Colors and Shapes’ which features Mac’s pet dog was also released and a vinyl pre-order for the tape has been set too.
