Watching the rise of Millyz, although still a story in progress, has been a privilege and an inspiration from the very start. The Cambridge always does right his by city, never fails to turn some heads with his versatile supply of flows and cadences, and above all, never compromises the quality or personality of his art. Add all this together, and you have the kind of artist that doesn’t come around too often. Proving his status as an absolute gem, Millyz is back on our pages today with a momentous release in the form of a brand new album entitled Saints & Sinners alongside none other than Boston legend, Statik Selektah.
As Millyz notes in the opening seconds of the album, “I used to want a beat from Statik, now I got an album with him.” This is a moment of undeniable growth for Cambridge’s own, and over the course of 10 songs, he shows us exactly how and why he’s made it to this point of success. Backed by the fitting sonic atmosphere of soulful, sample-heavy production and banging beats one after another, Saints & Sinners is the kind of album that demands to be kept on repeat for hours on end. Both Millyz and Selektah absolutely snapped in their respective roles, and the result is an unbelievable body of work that will undoubtedly withstand the test of time.
Quite frankly, I could talk about this album all day long, but I’ll let you enjoy Saints & Sinners in all of its passionate, honest glory at the link below. This one is going to go down in Boston history.
