Joining forces for their brand new music video “Any Moment” is Mark Milez & T-Y. The two mash abilities & trade verses sandwiched between Mark Milez effortless transition from rapping to singing on the chorus. Take in the video above well below I had the chance to get to know the artists behind the music for a few questions on this special edition of DetroitRap.com Presents 7 Questions : X2.

SEVEN QUESTIONS X2 W/MARK MILEZ & T-Y

COMMi$$ION: First off, the two of you have combined forces for your brand new song “Any Moment. How did the song come about & what was the inspiration behind the record.

MARK MILEZ:  T-Y hit me up with this instrumental produced by Orlando Wade and the rest was history. From the moment I heard the beat, I had a vision for this song to be a reflection on life. The message is that at any moment, life as you know it can change. So many people are caught up in the fast life, sometimes we need to remember to live for the moment and take it one day at a time.

COMMi$$ION: Have the two of you collaborated in the past or was this the first time, & how did you come to cross paths musically?

MARK MILEZ: This is our first time collaborating on a project. I originally met T-Y when we both performed on a show at Club Bleu back in 2016. I have a lot of respect for his hustle and how he approaches things musically. So, once we got to choppin it up, we knew it was imminent that we link up for a collab.

COMMi$$ION: To Mark Milez, you recently had the opportunity to open up for Wyclef Jean. How was that experience & if you had the chance to perform alongside any particular one artist in the future who would it be?

MARK MILEZ: Opening up for Wyclef was a great experience. My team really stepped it up a notch for that performance. Lately we’ve been incorporating more live instrumentation, back up vocalists and dance choreography. The show had a great turn out and it was nothing but good vibes. After the performance me and T-Y both kicked it back stage with Wyclef. He shared with us some of his wisdom about the game and told us about his experiences touring around the world. Next, he asked me to spit something for him. It might have been one of the most surreal moments of my career. As far as another artist I would like to work with, I’d say Big Sean. Being from Detroit, his journey from being a local artist like myself to becoming successful worldwide has always inspired me.

COMMi$$ION:  For fans who’ve yet to discover the either of you, how would each of you describe your music in a quick elevator pitch to potential listeners?

MARK MILEZ: I really try to make music that anyone can relate to. I’m a diverse artist with being able to both rap and sing so each release I like to come with a different style. On one song you’ll hear me rapping on a lyrical level, the next song might be something for the club, than out of nowhere I’ll drop a R&B love song ballad. I was heavily influenced by 90’s and early 200’s Hip-Hop and R&B so if that is what your into, you will def like my music.

COMMi$$ION: How did the decision to have a music video for “Any Moment” come about, and was their any particularly memorable moments during the filming of it?

MARK MILEZ: We knew right away that this song would be an instant fan favorite and we wanted to paint a picture with the video. Shoutout to Chadex at Steam Factory Media for making it come to life. We had a great time filming at Ambassador cigar lounge in Rochester. It was a fun afternoon, shoutouts to the entire Ambassador crew. We dove into the project with a lot of ideas and as it came together the entire concept kept evolving into something great. Since we came up with the storyline of the distracted driver, we have reached out to public awareness groups who are now supporting the project nationally. Overall the support of everyone involved has been a true blessing.

COMMi$$ION: Lastly what can we expect from the both of you for the remaining of 2018? What’s next for Mark Milez & T-Y?

MARK MILEZ: I have another single dropping mid August called “Summer Nights”. It’s gonna be a summer anthem, so watch out for that. The music video for that single is already in the works as well. Plus You can expect a few more show announcements coming soon. I just wanna give a big thanks to the fans who are supporting everything we do. Your support matters! Stay tuned because I’ve got so much more on the way.


COMMi$$ION: First off, the two of you have combined forces for your brand new song “Any Moment. How did the song come about & was was the inspiration behind the record.

T-Y: Orlando Wade is a cousin of mine that I had recently acquired some special beats from him. Once I sent the beat to Mark, I want to say a day or so later, Mark had a verse and hook completely finished! Once I heard what he had it motivated me to match the energy & relatable lyrics. It was really good and I instantly started writing I want to say we had the song written and ready to record in a couple days. Any Moment is the quickest song, I’ve ever written & recorded up to date. Any moment anything can occur and that is the message behind the song.

COMMi$$ION: Have the two of you collaborated in the past or was this the first time, & how did you come to cross paths musically?

T-Y: 1st collaboration we met at a show I almost didn’t do at Club Bleu in Detroit in 2016. Mark’s ambition, performance, and grind reminded me of my own. We instantly clicked after kicking it at the show and knew we definitely needed to work on something together… the rest is history.

COMMi$$ION:  For T-Y, you had the opportunity yourself to perform at SXSW in Austin, TX. How would you compare the festival environment vs. the local stage?

T-Y: SXSW was an incredible experience again. I would say the festival environment especially SXSW is an limitless opportunity, anything can happen and you never know who’d you’ll meet. I had 8 shows this past March & ended up doing some major networking and getting on Sirius XM Shade 45’s Sway in the Morning. Locally you have to generate your fan base, rally your friends and family to support you and make sure it fits their schedules. Local shows are fun and impactful, but in a festival atmosphere there is more capabilities.

COMMi$$ION:  For fans who’ve yet to discover the either of you, how would each of you describe your music in a quick elevator pitch to potential listeners?

T-Y: I’m unlike anything you’ve heard before, I am universal genre-wise and my lyrics are relatable. I put a lot of time into my message and I make sure my music appeals to the masses. I keep good vibes a lot of people compare my style to Big Sean

COMMi$$ION: How did the decision to have a music video for “Any Moment” come about, and was their any particularly memorable moments during the filming of it?

T-Y: Were fans of the song ourselves actually, so we instantly knew a video was a must! We’ve performed the song a handful of times and every time we get the same overall reaction and response from the audience. We’re excited that everyone is excited about the tracks and we have big plans for it. A memorable moment while shooting, in my opinion, was the random homeless person that started rapping with us on the roof of the parking garage it was just so unexpected yet so funny. Will never forget that

COMMi$$ION: Lastly what can we expect from the both of you for the remaining of 2018? What’s next for Mark Milez & T-Y?

T-Y: Good Question, stay tuned and watch our journey and maybe that’s something you can tell us about. More music More performances More Life ahead www.IgobyTy.com

Killz Korner Ty Farris

Published

This week we are ft.Ty Farris with his project “Room 39 part 2” and the group Street Life who are the hottest in the city right now.

Ty has hit the streets hard with “Room 39 Part 2″. ( available at https://tyfarris.com/ ). This is hard hitting street music. I am very involved in the Detroit Music scene and I am here to tell you that Ty has earned his stripes and deserves the accolade of one of Detroit’s best artist. The eastside native has created his own lane and with his producer Trox have provided some griity music to get through a gritty life. This music is a perfect soundtrack of what hood life is about.
Room 39 is 11 tracks of substance, an attribute that is missing from most music that is thrown together nowadays. The mixing and mastering of the songs are excellent and Farris delivers blow after blow of outstanding lyricism and thought provoking punchlines.

I came into this review with my Big Proof ears on and I must say that I am over impressed with the album delivered to my music buzz. with lines like ” I don’t migrate with fly weights, since 98 around niggas that buy weight”. Lines like this stick out to me because if you are from Detroit there is some chance that you have sold drugs before, even if by association. This is just facts. These types of rhymes along with the gritty beats provided by Trox give the perfect soundtrack to a hood adventure.

My fav tracks are “Please Don’t overdose”, “Came a long Way” ft LIL Fame of MOP and 38 Spesh, and my favorite track is “Say my name” which takes me back to the Purple Gang days.

It’s time for me to leave a rating, and I must say that I am biased as a review because I know this mufaka personally. He is actually this asshole on the songs in real life. So for that to be the case its hard for me not to grade his album even harder than I would the average emcee, and i still have to give him 4 and 1/2 tokes. This is good music and I must say that i am proud to announce that Ty Farris is bringing the fire that the streets need in the city of Detroit, Eastside stand up, the boy did something for y’all.

Killz Korner rating 4 1/2 tokes.

The album has been available since July 26th, 2019, and make sure you add it to workout playlist.

TINY JAG DENIED PROMO FOR ANTI-PATRIARCY VIDEO

TINY JAG DENIED PROMO FOR ANTI-PATRIARCY VIDEO
Detroit’s Tiny Jag is a rapper, singer/songwriter known for conveying relevant messages throughout her music. One of her most consistent; the empowerment of women. Recently, Tiny Jag released a vibrant visual to her single ‘Bizarre,’ challenging the traditional story of creation and Adam and Eve.
Tiny Jag on her intentions with the ‘Bizarre’ Music Video:
“We hear about Eve’s shortcomings at a very young age. Many of us are influenced by that to view women as inadequate before we can even understand what we’re digesting. I wanted to challenge that narrative and give its followers a bit of a hard time.”
Shortly after releasing the controversial video via YouTube, Tiny Jag and team began to push the visual for support and promotion. Among these attempts were numerous tries with Facebook (also owning/controlling Instagram). After every tweaked attempt fell short of approval, Tiny Jag realized the concept and message of her work may be what was truly denied.
Tiny Jag on being censored as a woman:
“So I knew we weren’t going to get support for the video if it had cursing or discriminatory lyrics, I avoided those things.  The track/visual do not discuss, promote, or demonstrate sexual acts, no nudity. I mean, it’s a bit out of the box but to censor me for anything short of those things seems discriminatory in itself. I can’t help but believe that it’s an attack against what it represents.”

It’s all happening in just a couple days on June 24th 3 PM EST /9 PM CET  at Copenhagen Crates https://cphcrates.com/

If “Jeet Kune Do” is any inkling of what’s to come forth on this reimagined take repackaged in an exquisite format than hip hop fans are in for something outstanding. This particular lyrical exchange of two Detroit legends sparring words atop an in your face battle royale worthy production from Dj Dez. Vstylez projects the confidence he comments on this verse with flawless delivery and Elzhi slides in providing sword slicing word dicing fine example of Detroit hip-hop. It’s a different level with these two and not too many emcees got it like this. Get yourself that brand new vinyl this June 24th and don’t wait too long… I have a feeling 100 copies won’t last long for this one, I’ll know I’ll be ready to grab my copy that day.
