We’ve Got Bad Newsz for you…..

Straight out of Cali, Bad Newsz Greatest is bringing you the raw beginnings of his newest project, I Live Forever, the follow up and trilogy to the amazing D.R.U.G.S. Pt. 1 & D.R.U.G.S. Pt. 2 which were featured on both DJBooth.net and Datpiff.com. Bad Newsz was also featured this year as one of the key featured Cali artists played on The Lady *O* Show: Where The Music Speaks For Itself © Season 4 in New York City, of which he received rave reviews from both the in-studio audience as well as the Ustream.tv T.L.O.S. Fambase.

With his unique tone of voice and clever music choices that reflect his knowledge of hip hop history, he’s at it again with this new single “That Forever Life“.  The track offers a slight alternative feel, a heavy knock n’ bop, with a side of the female vocal samplings of Lana Del Rey’s “Off To The Races“. This is just a small taste of Bad’s true skills in a 2-minute time frame with no hook and continuous trill west coast rhymes. B.N.G. held back lyrically a little bit on this one (in my opinion lol), but as we know, B.N.G. always has a reason for everything he creates.  When it comes to entire projects as a whole, Bad Newsz is known for his consistency, cohesiveness, hidden jewel-dropping, and ability to let you into his world… And I’m sure I Live Forever will be no different. 😉

#NYC serves us some Hip Hop mystery pie…Got MiLK?

Now before I get this piece started, I would like to #SHOUTOUT Mac Miller and say, THIS is what happens when you inspire other people and future artists… And I hope you check these 2 out. Your song “Donald Trump” inspired something new… Which is something I didn’t even think or know was even possible with that track because I think that “Donald Trump” will be a new school hip hop classic. But even the MiLKMEN track came out genius in my opinion. It’s a FREE DOWNLOAD BTW… So “Don’t Hate,… Appreciate!” LOL…It’s ALL LOVE. Check it out in the beginning of the video and to hear the whole track (And NO, I will not tell you the title. Just Click the link! LOL!) you can check out this direct HotNewHipHop.com link:  http://www.hotnewhiphop.com/en/play/s/3ed5afb-324285/

Here’s the Interview:

As I took the M train to Queens, (a train I’ve only taken ONCE literally in my ENTIRE LIFE during my freshman year of H.S…LOL), I met up with this dynamic duo, The MiLKMEN, who I found on HotNewHipHop.com thanks to a certain elementary school pal who tries to ignore me in real life…LOL. It’s cool tho… Thanks Friend and Thank You Facebook for showing me who my friends listen to! 😀 <- My Sarcastic “Sheldon Smile”… (That’s a #BBT reference for all my geeks out there..)

Facebook is SO AWESOME. LOL #TEAMSARCASM

ANYWAY, LOL, these two are quite the characters…

  Red and Ty Philly are all about loving music and life. They remind me of a new age and even more chill version of Redman and Method Man in personality. Red hails from Astoria, Queens while Ty Philly hails from my home of L.E.S., NYC.  I had a blast kickin’ it and chopping it up with these guys… They are eclectic in sound, real at heart, and are about nothing but love and appreciation for other artists and entrepreneurs who reciprocate those same ideals. Not to mention, complete goofballs like myself… LOL. *Roll the footage…LOL*

They are in the process of narrowing down their long catalog of tracks for their first official album  “Far From Perfect” (Release Date TBA).  So far, they have released 5 mixtapes on HotNewHipHop.com. Their most recent works are “The Preview EP” and “The 2nd Preview“. These 2 mixtapes were supposed to be the precursors to “Far From Perfect“…However, since the catalog is SO long and they are still sifting and creating, the track listing is likely to change at random.

Which is what they are all about! Random. They like that you never know what you are going to get with the MiLKMEN. You could get Whole, Skim, 2%, Soy… LMAO!… J/k… But all jokes aside, (MUSICALLY speaking) you could get a rock influence, club/house influence, R&B, Soul, Old School, anything… For them, the options are endless when it comes to mood…And you can already tell by the way the beginning and end of the video interview sounds.  BTW!  The last song in the footage is called “ALL DAY” which can be found INSTANTLY by clicking the HotNewHipHop.com link below at the end of this post. Doesn’t that bang? (Make sure you leave comments on that.)

I hope that the video interview helps you piece together what they are like as people and not just as artists. I think you should check them out and get to know them, because there is WAY more to come!  As far as I’m concerned “M.I.L.K.”means “My.Imagination.Leads.Kreativity.“… Because for them, it’s all about creating and love of the process of exploring your imagination when making music for the future that you are passionate about.

Shouldn’t that be what ALL Hip-Hop is about?
