Since ‘Faces’ hit Spotify and other streaming platforms, Miller’s fans have taken the internet by the storm, and here are some of the best tweets.
A Mac-Miller fan, Sam Ziegelman, tweeted
“Faces is one of the greatest mixtapes to even exist. Mac Miller created a dark & immersive experience with some of the best production/ sample mixing of his career at ONLY 22. Not only is the production stellar but his lyricism is off the charts. Long love.”
“Don’t jump to any song first,” tweeted @HipHopNumbers. “If you’ve never heard it before, start at ‘Inside Outside,’ close your blinds, turn your phone to silent and join Mac inside his own world.”
“In my opinion, Mac’s best project,”
Fans are also calling ‘Faces’ one of the best mix-tapes of all time.
Earlier this year, Sam Mason directed a music video of a single titled “Colours and Shapes.”
The music video is a transcendental and psychedelic voyage of Mac Miller’s own pet, Ralph the dog through outer space and talks about the “perilous” but “noble” path of an artist.
The director of the video, Sam Mason quoted:
“The track felt very visual to me—like it had its own world,”
“This atmospheric nighttime place that was sometimes dangerous, sometimes comforting, then I saw a picture of Ralph and a story emerged.”
Mason further added:
“To build it out I asked Malcolm’s family to send me bits and pieces from his childhood, scenes from the town where he grew up, objects, toys from his room—little pieces of his life that I extrapolated outwards and used to inspire the story.”
A Brief Timeline Of Mac Miller’s Musical Journey
Born Malcolm James McCormick in Pittsburgh. (1992)
Started playing guitar, piano, drum, and many other instruments by the age of 6. Became a self-taught multi-instrumentalist.
He started rapping by 14.
He also quoted,
“Once I hit 15, I got real serious about it and it changed my life completely … I used to be into sports, play all the sports, go to all the high school parties. But once I found out hip-hop is almost like a job, that’s all I did.”[
By 15, he released the mixtape titled “But My Mackin’ Ain’t Easy” under the alias Easy Mac in 2007.
He finally adopted the alias Mac Miller in 2009 and released “The Jukebox: Prelude To Class Clown.”
In 2010, he signed up with a major independent record label, Rostrum Records.
He released a six-track long extended play in the March of 2011 titled, “On, On And Beyond.” It was his first major breakthrough inside the Billboard Charts.
By the time Miller was 20, he was topping several charts including Billboard, and also held a platinum-certified single.
He started dating Ariana Grande in 2016.
Shortly after the release of this last album, titled “Swimming,” Miller died of an accidental overdose of fentanyl, cocaine, and alcohol at 26 years old.
