Millyz LIVE In Manchester on Saturday 1st October 2022
Millyz dropped his first album, Future Memories, in 2013, which is the same year he met Jadakiss, an early supporter who became a close friend of his. Jada jumped onto the remix of Millyz's song 'The Plug,' in 2013. The initial track was already buzzing around New England, and the remix kicked off their musical relationship. A few years later in 2016, Millyz showcased his lyrical skills in the BET Hip Hop Awards cypher. Lucky for him, the MC got his shot i the cypher because one of the scheduled rappers missed the shoot. His appearance on the awards show, in which he rapped about race relations, police brutality and more, led into his radio freestyle run that took him to spit bars for the likes of Statik Selektah, Funk Flex and Sway, among others.
By 2018, Millyz kicked off his Blanco album series; by 2020's Blanco 3, hewas starting to gain real traction on YouTube and at shows, amassing views and selling tickets at a rate higher than ever. With both videos for 2020's 'Himalayas' and 'Heightened Senses' featuring Jim Jones crossing a million views, a first for the rising artist, things were beginning to change.
This year, his collab EP, Pablo & Blanco, with Dave East arrived in May, shortly before Millyz's new album, Blanco IV, further bolstered his career. The new LP dropped on Aug. 20, and landed at the No. 93 spot on the Billboard 200 chart, a huge moment for a rapper who was giving out his own mixtapes back in 2009. The tracks from the album that are currently picking up momentum are 'Emotions' with G Herbo and 'Hopeless' featuring Jadakiss, both with videos that have crossed the million-views mark in under a month
