Published

Detroit not only put the world on wheels we are also a huge foundation to black music. Most notably hip hop has put the the globe in a chokehold. Detroit artist are touring and making noise. One of the main reasons for this is Detroit producer Helluva. Dont get it twisted for one second the Detroit sound in rap music is not only being sought out nationwide but globally.  Read on as we check in with rap artist Lil Mile from Italy.

 

1. Whats the hip hop music scene like in Italy?
The Hip-hop music scene here in Italy is expanding and it’s pretty strong. Right now hip-hop is the most listened music genre here in Italy and everybody listen to american hip-hop and italian hip-hop.
2. Is Detroit music popular in your country with fans of Hip Hop?
It’s not as popular as it should be but a lot of people listen to Detroit artists like Big Sean, Tee Grizzley, 42 Dugg, Icewear Vezzo but my goal is to expand Detroit music over here with collabs and big projects.
3. How did you land a single with Helluva?
I always listen to songs that are produced by Helluva, but everything is started thanks to Dawgface Calderon. He is my main american contact and he linked me the legend Helluva. He liked my style so he is in my team too supporting me and believing in this project: to build an hip-hop “bridge” between U.S.A and Italy/Europe. The project is big and this single prod by Helluva is just the beginning.
4. Is there plans to do more work with Detroit?
Yessir! Everything has just begun. As soon as they will open the flights I will fly to Detroit to Dawgface and Helluva to make songs, big collaborations, interviews and to “build this bridge”. As I wrote to you we have big big projects on the way.
5. How do you plan to make an impact here in the US?
I played college basketball in U.S.A. for 4 years and I assimilated the real american hip-hop culture. I made real friendships, connections and contacts because of my hard work and dedication. With Dawgface and Helluva there is a brotherhood first, it’s not just a collab. We are a family, more than a team. I am the first italian with real connections built from respect, loyalty and brotherhood. I sing in english too, my accent is my particularity and I have a unique sound, melodic flow and powerfully honest lyrics. Positivity is my main message of my music, to unify everybody.
6. Who are some other US artists you would like to work with?
I would like to work with a lot of US artists because I respect them. Lil Durk is one of my favorite, I went to his live show back in 2017 in San Diego, I met him and he a real one. Big Sean, Fredo Bang, 42 Dugg, Tee Grizzley, Lil Baby, Rod Wave, Da Baby, Toosii, Roddy Ricch, Kodak Black and many others! in Detroit area too!

“Detroit Monster” by The Davis Way

Published

on

By

In a highly competitive market like Detroit, you know if you even dip your toe in the pool of music you better be ready to swim. Guided by a slightly different approach than normal, frequent listeners of The Davis Way will immediately grasp he has “the right gear ready” to navigate the water.
His latest offering, “Detroit Monster”, is a glimpse into the world he describes as “cinematic hip hop”. The instrumental project blends the natural elements of that genre, accompanied by operatic themes and haunting vocals. Basically, The Davis Way serves as the maestro on this well-crafted journey.
The album opens with “Foreseen”, representing not only changes in his own music but the lack of attention some of his peers gave to the actual BUSINESS of music. That same business could potentially see any of these tracks garner attention for sync licensing. The mood continues on “Veil Of Tears”, a track inspired directly by a conversation via DM he had with someone about record labels being monsters. In a plot twist, the DM he received could also be perceived as a “monster”.
With additional titles such as the “Bully With The Beats”, the album title track (Detroit Monster), and “Breaking Hearts & Faces”, you can pretty much tell The Davis Way isn’t concerned with the “so-called monster” because he feels “we have the knowledge” to prevail over negativity. “Global Dominance” would be the perfect background music for the rise and “Resurgence” of independent artists not only making great music but empowering themselves through education of the business.
“Detroit Monster” is more than a cinema. It’s a wake-up call for producers to expand the horizon and continue to build their craft.
