A spare, unreleased track from Milo surfaces on YouTube via this channel, and the image would imply that it’s a leftover from Milos new EP, Things That Happen At Day. While the song isn’t Milo’s most impressive lyrical feat, the wind chime beat is incredibly spacey, relaxing, and serene. Enjoy!
Check a review for Milo’s new EPs below:
On his new set of EPs, Wisconsin rapper Rory Ferreira, a.k.a. Milo, changes his instrumental game, rapping over some pretty spacious, atmospheric beats. On top of that, he’s strengthened his usual barrage of obtuse personal musings; bringing their emotional potency higher than ever.
Over an atmospheric cloud rap beat created by Lee Bannon, America’s most beloved nerd rapper, Milo, has a new track out featuring his usual series of strange personal musings.
We already know he’ll be reading Aristotle while we’re all popping bottles at the club, but giving pep talks in front of coffee machines and losing his pieces of flair are a few new developments. There’s also a clever comparison involving a puppy mill, and a pretty sweet beat change in the middle of the track. I just wish it were longer, but word ’round the campfire is Milo and Bannon may have more collaborative material coming down the pipe.
With a dreamy, slow motion beat from XXYYXX, Milo brings a surprisingly calm demeanor to a new collection of lyrical abstractions and nerdy references.
I’m loving the instrumental here. I’ve always thought XXYYXX’s stuff could use a bit more detail, but his usual simplicity seems to fit perfectly with an MC like Milo. The synth-rich outro is pretty climactic, too.
The lyrics continue an autobiographical narrative of puzzling proportions. Milo stands strong on webbed feet, sports teeth covered with granola, and holds onto his title as the rapper with the most Diablo 2 references.
Overall, it’s a great show of his versatility that he could make a quieter moment like this work. Looking forward to what this guy does next.
Download: Open Mike Eagle- Rent Party Extension
Los Angeles-based rapper Open Mike Eagle recently dropped a five-track EP that, like many of the best things in life, is free. Titled Rent Party Extension, the EP brings in a handful of features, including Milo, who put out the Loved Listed I Wish My Brother Rob Was Here last year, and Roots collaborator Hot Sugar. The release serves as an appetizer for the full-length that the MC is supposedly putting out in June. In the mean time, check out what Open Mike Eagle calls “grown, broke nerd theme musics” by heading here for a free download. Scope the track list and cover art below:
1. 5ree Thinkers (prod. Hot Sugar)
2. Amped (feat. Eagle Nebula) (prod. Alpha MC)
3. Neighbor (prod. Infinity Rock)
4. Boss Fight (feat. Milo)
5. Rent Party Revolution (Taco Neck Remix)
While this track off Milo’s latest mixtape features the same raw and humble characteristics the Wisconsin rapper’s previous efforts, the lyrics here expose private moments in a way that just leaves me with a pile of awkward feelings.
Last year, I covered quite a few up-and-coming MCs, and one of the most clever I came across was a young buck by the name of Milo. His debut mixtape, I Wish My Brother Rob Was Here, was one of the first releases I’ve heard to take the nerd rap and make it relatable and endearing–you know, instead of a cartoony effigy.
Milo’s got a new mixtape on the way, and it’s nothing but new rhymes and instrumentals from beatmusic producer Baths. The title? Milo Takes Baths.
We’re premiering the track “Atlas Flushed” right here, and it features Milo’s usual deadpan and doubled delivery, which I find to have a certain quiet intensity to it.
Lyrical topics jump from God, nude photos, Google Adsense, and the top-notch Ghostface Killah album Fishscale. It’s an eccentric, personal set of lyrics that are fun to follow. Check the cover art of this mixtape below, and look for its official release later this month.
