Some other huge news from this week in hip hop was the announcement from Mac Miller’s estate that his most critically acclaimed project, his 2014 mixtape Faces, will be released on all streaming platforms on October 15th after having its samples cleared, along with a bonus track entitled “Yeah”. The announcement was made on the estate’s official Instagram account, @92tilinfinity, as well as with the release of one of the songs, Colors and Shapes, accompanied by a music video.Also made available were the first official physical copies of the project, available on his website. This tape explores some very dark themes, most notably Mac’s substance abuse problem and mental illness hurdles that he had gone through. Mac tweeted in 2017, “I was not on planet earth when I made Faces. Nowhere close.” As one might imagine, the 24 tracks are even more difficult to listen to now that he has passed away. The beautiful thing is that the art that he put out there will survive forever, helping millions, and hopefully bringing in new ears who had not been aware of its existence because of its absence from streaming.
For this week in a song from 2016 that has been stuck in my head, I’ve been singing “Congratulations” from Mac Miller’s album The Divine Feminine to myself for the better part of a week. The opening track from his album dedicated to love, released five years ago this week, tells the story of a first love, someone who was there with him before the fame, how he has many regrets regarding this time but can only reflect. It’s truly one of the more beautiful songs I’ve ever heard and is an incredible opening to a wonderful album.
