Faces is the eleventh mixtape by American rapper Mac Miller. It was independently released for free download on May 11, 2014. The mixtape is the follow-up to Miller's second studio album Watching Movies with the Sound Off (2013), and is considered by many to be his magnum opus for its dark and personal exploration of Miller's struggle with drug addiction.[2][3] On October 15, 2021, Faces was commercially released on streaming platforms and vinyl.

Miller produced most of Faces himself and moved towards creating more psychedelic and jazzy instrumentals for his increasingly dark lyrical themes. Its jazziness is not a departure from Miller's previous work, as it echoes the project he released under the alias Larry Lovestein titled You that was also centered around jazz instrumentals. It continues to build upon and experiment with the psychedelic sounds of Watching Movies with the Sound Off. The mixtape features guest appearances from Rick Ross, Earl Sweatshirt, Schoolboy Q, Mike Jones, Sir Michael Rocks, Vince Staples, Ab-Soul and Dash.

Faces was named "Mixtape of the Week" by Stereogum on May 14, 2014,[4] given a 7.3 rating by Pitchfork,[5] and noted by Billboard on May 11, 2014.[6]

Background

Mac Miller serves as the executive producer under his production pseudonym "Larry Fisherman", serving as the sole producer or co-producer for over half of the songs on the track list. ID Labs handled production for two songs, while Earl Sweatshirt produced the songs "Polo Jeans" and "New Faces v2" under his own production pseudonym, "randomblackdude". Thundercat, DrewByrd, Rahki, THC, Big Jerm and 9th Wonder produced one song each on the mixtape.

Faces includes various spoken word and movie samples interspliced throughout the album. These notably include Charles Bukowski on "Wedding", Hunter S. Thompson at the beginning of "Funeral", and Bill Murray from the 1979 comedy Meatballs at the beginning of "It Just Doesn't Matter". These samples had been credited as the reason that Faces had not been released on streaming services until 2021 despite high demand. Many of these samples were removed for the official release.[7]

On September 15, 2021, Miller's estate announced that the mixtape would be available on streaming platforms and vinyl for the first time on October 15, 2021. Alongside the announcement, a video for the song "Colors and Shapes", directed by Sam Manson, was released.[8]

Faces was met with positive reviews upon release, and noted for its themes and exploration of psychosis, addiction, and mortality.

Faces was rated the eighteenth best rap album of 2014 by Rolling Stone.[12]

Commercial performance

Upon its commercial release in October 2021, Faces debuted at number three on the US Billboard 200, earning 67,000 album-equivalent units during its first week, of which 34,000 were traditional album sales. It was Miller's seventh album to debut in the top ten.[13] Its 32,000 vinyl sales in the first week set a record for an R&B/hip-hop or rap album, since MRC Data began tracking sales in 1991.[14]

Mac Miller (2017)

Mac Miller (* 19. Januar 1992 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; † 7. September 2018 in Los Angeles, Kalifornien[1]; bürgerlich Malcolm James McCormick) war ein US-amerikanischer Rapper, Sänger und Songwriter. Unter dem Pseudonym Larry Fisherman war er auch als Musikproduzent tätig. Außerdem produzierte er eine Staffel seiner eigenen Reality-TV Sendung Mac Miller and the Most Dope Family.

Leben

Miller war Autodidakt und konnte im Alter von 6 schon Klavier, Gitarre, Schlagzeug und Bass spielen. Mit 14 fing er an zu rappen, und 2007 brachte er im Alter von 15 Jahren sein erstes Mixtape But My Mackin’ Ain’t Easy heraus. Im Jahr 2009 folgten das Mixtape How High sowie das Previewalbum The Jukebox.[2] Anfang 2010 unterschrieb Mac Miller einen Plattenvertrag bei Rostrum Records. Am 13. August 2010 veröffentlichte er sein Mixtape K.I.D.S (Kickin’ Incredibly Dope Shit). Darauf folgten 2011 das Mixtape Best Day Ever[3] sowie die EP On and On and Beyond.[4]

Am 8. November desselben Jahres erschien sein erstes Album Blue Slide Park, benannt nach einer Parkanlage seiner Heimatstadt. Das Album beschäftigt sich mit den Orten seiner Jugend. Das Album debütierte auf Platz 1 der Billboard 200 mit einem Absatz von 144.000 Exemplaren in der ersten Woche. Im Jahr 2013 spielte Miller die Hauptrolle in seiner eigenen Reality-TV Sendung, Mac Miller and the Most Dope Family, die von MTV produziert wurde.[5] Die Sendung verfolgte die Produktion seines zweiten Albums, Watching Movies with the Sound Off, das am 18. Juni 2013 veröffentlicht wurde.

Am 11. Mai 2014 kam Millers 10. Mixtape heraus, Faces, das die Themen Drogenkonsum, Prominenz und Vergangenheit behandelte.[6] Das darauffolgende Album, GO:OD AM, wurde September 2015 veröffentlicht, und war Millers erste Major-Label Platte. Das Album debütierte auf Platz 4 der Billboard 200.[7] Knapp ein Jahr später veröffentlichte Miller sein nächstes Album, The Divine Feminine, das Themen von Liebe und Sex behandelte.[8] Am 3. August 2018 veröffentlichte er sein fünftes Album, Swimming, das auf Platz 3 der Billboard 200 debütierte, mit einem Absatz von 66.000 Exemplaren in der ersten Woche. Das Album wurde bei den Grammy Awards 2019 für den Award for Best Rap Album nominiert.[9]

Am 7. September 2018 wurde Mac Miller im Alter von 26 Jahren in seinem Haus in Studio City, einem Stadtteil von Los Angeles, tot aufgefunden. Als Todesursache wurde eine versehentliche, kombinierte Überdosis von Schmerzmitteln, Alkohol und weiteren Drogen festgestellt. Bei der Obduktion wurden Reste unter anderem von Fentanyl und Kokain nachgewiesen.[10]

Am 8. Januar 2020 wurde das erste posthume Album Millers von seiner Familie angekündigt, Circles, welches am 17. Januar veröffentlicht wurde. Zum Zeitpunkt seines Todes hat Miller noch an dem Album gearbeitet, das als Companion-Album zu Swimming erscheinen sollte. Zu Ende geführt wurde die Produktion von Jon Brion, der auch bei der Produktion von Swimming mitgearbeitet hat.[11][12]
