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


Well, that’s this edition of 7 Questions for now – with a little extra this time around! Be sure to join us next time & a special thanks to this editions guests Mark Milez & T-Y.

her undeniable creativity, innovativeness and originality. You know you are witnessing something more than special. Its a gift. And Junii is
truly gifted. Starting as a duo in the Hip Hop Soul group called Better In Black, Junii’s drive and talent was the backbone along with her
brother that made them stand out. Their sound, was Junii’s creation. She was the creative mastermind behind the productions as well as
delivering master class rapping and impressive singing chops to boot. She has enjoyed the rise as an independent artist, which saw
Better In Black transition from Internet to actual performances and moving beyond Sound Cloud releases. They officially released the EPs
The Garden (2018) and DELETE_EVERYTHING (2019).. The latter was recognized by Industry trade magazine, Music Connection Magazine
 Review Section with an 8.0 rating and later Bettr In Black was named as “Ones To Watch in 2020” by the magazine. Eventually her brother
Natrol Black would step down from Better In Black in late 2019. But Junii took the time to realign herself with ne collaborators and bounced
back with “THE UMA THURMAN EP” with Production unit STR8 BANGAZ out of NYC. The Result is Pure Hip Hop Euphoria with cuts like
“Uma” and “Hot Days” showing Junii ripping the verse in Full emcee mode. Its clearly obvious YES, she can work wonders with others and
not just on her own productions. The UMA THURMAN EP, has generated a solid buzz around her.  And recently she was chosen by Rapper
Reason of TDE Records (Kendrick Lamar, SZA, SiR) to appear on the remix of his hit “Flick It Up” thru the online contest #FlickItUp Challenge
which found her beating out thousands of up & comers to score the once in a lifetime opportunity. It is a Dream come true to do something with
the House that Kendrick built TDE .. And not one to slow down she kept the momentum byTaking things in another direction.. Junii gets
vocal on “All Real” an alternative R&B and organic Soul workout. Reminiscent of Mary J, Jill Scott vocally, with a dose of Floetry
and The Internet to set the vibe and mood..in addition to “OUTOFHERE” & “LONG DRIVE” , she is on a tear release consecutive singles
all leading up the release of a full dual debut solo EPs in the Spring . As for Better In Black, Junii is not letting the creation fall by the wayside.
She linked up with fellow Detroit emcee Nappi Devi, who if we didn’t know better, is Junii in male form. They more than compliment each other
as rappers, but even a vocalists and writers. Making for the return of Better In Black to be an all out assault for the listener…2020 will go down
as The year of  Junii. Dropping two EPs plus the Better In Black Resurrection EP, She currently has the singles “outofhere” and “Long Drive”
released independently from the “If Tomorrow Never comes” in April EP.. And “ALL REAL” and the NEW SINGLE “LET ME KNOW” a
