Grinding harder than ever, Millyz has been applying pressure on almost every record he hops on (ex. Tory Lanez’s “Hate To Say”). His recent alignment with D-Block‘s Jadakiss (as part of Jada’s SoRaspy imprint) definitely adds to the growing hype. Back in March, Millyz connected with Nino Man on their record “No Time 4 U,” which is taken from the highly-rated Blanco EP; this week, he followed that up with another visual for “Find Meaning.” Simply put, the Cambridge native hasn’t disappointed and has proved that he’s striving for more.
The release of Blanco (which you can stream below) gives the streets some fresh material, putting those on notice who aren’t so familiar with him and showing you a different side of the versatile Millyz — he slows it down just a bit to ensure that his message is clear, cut, and precise. The ten-track EP also includes features from Smoke DZA, Neva Soba and Avenue.
Always paying homage to his fellow Bostonians, Millyz’ collaboration with Neva Soba and Avenue on “Peanut Butter Seats” is a big moment for his city. It’s a rarity to see not just two, but three Boston artists on one record, making it hard to decide bar-for-bar who is lyrically on top.
Putting it all on the table for better or worse, Blanco sees Millyz at his most transparent with each track playing out like an open book. For those who’ve watched Millyz’ ascension since the beginning have seen a man turn nothing into something, relying on nothing but wits and his gut feeling.
