Back on the grind, back on the grind. What seems like forever since I’ve been in the Chicago music scene, I was very excited to start my weekend by attending Saint Millie’s “Glory” Listening Session at Jugrnaut Chicago. In hopes to grab a decent place on the floor and beat the other music heads, I arrived early. However, in typical Chicago fashion shit started later and was already packed by the time I rolled through. Damn. But no matter, didn’t even trip with this nice weather. Just hit up 7/11 and indulge that Vitacoco for that pre-listening party hydration.
Again, when I say the event was packed, it was definitely a tight squeeze to even get a good ear in the store without elbowing another person in the face or balls (if you are short as fuck like me). Nevertheless, the tight venue had no effect on the crowd who waited patiently for Saint Millie to unveil his creative soul child. And for what it was worth, it definitely made the intended weekend impact.
So did Saint Millie deliver? Was it on fleek? Did he use auto tune? Yes, yes, and uh…no, dude ain’t Future. Without spilling too much, the production for his project is definitely worth the listen and exceeded my expectations. With an influx of repetitive beats that seem to be recycled and spit back like bad baby food, Saint Millie is doing the complete opposite. Setting a new vibe that can only be appreciated with tracks like “Smoke Wit Me” and “Sirens”. The production and quality of his tracks are some of the better stuff coming out Chicago. I definitely appreciate the no bullshit gimmick he has with this project along with the level of detail placed to make this project come to life. With clean beats, strong lyricism, and his dynamic presence, Saint Millie is doing things right. So to cap it off, congrats on the completion of your project. I, along with others from Gowherehiphop are very excited to see all your future projects come to life.
