With Mac Miller's latest mixtape, Faces, he continues to separate himself from the college frat rap that made him popular, focusing on the more impressive, and progressive, strand of hipster rap that's been gaining momentum, spitting rhymes alongside coveted members of the movement like Schoolboy Q, Earl Sweatshirt or Action Bronson. But he also enlists some big-time M.C.'s like Rick Ross, on album standout "INSOMNIAK," a track that has now received a complete makeover courtesy of JayCeeOh and HIDEthenSEEK. The two producers keep both rappers verses intact, but add a whole another world of bulbous synths and layers of trap to it, in turn successfully converting this introspective rap song into a full-out club anthem.
