Hellfyre Club product Milo has continually managed to fly under the radar, even though he routinely delivers high-quality work. Perhaps he’ll get his just due with the release of his new album, Who Told You To Think??!!?!?!?!
The lyrically gifted artist’s latest work features 15 tracks with guest appearances by indie rap vets like Busdriver and Self Jupiter. And in his words, it’s rejuvenating release.
“Who Told You To Think??!!?!?!?! is about boundaries and permissions,” Milo wrote on his Bandcamp. “The artist creating their own license to ill. What it means to answer a call that never comes. The process of flaw turned idiosyncrasy turned style. That old transmutation spell, the happening as one perfects tricks and in turn masters magic. To set the elenchus upon itself, to begin a poet and end a rapper. Agency. That is what makes the rapper an exceptional artist, Beyond a poet. In years gone, rappers once focused on getting Free. Who Told You To Think??!!?!?!?! is a return to form.”
