Listen I’m a young writer. I Don’t have the experience of going to a record shop and picking up a fresh vinyl. Nor have I walked 10 miles to school uphill both ways.
As a young writer, I tend to find things that I can only assume would give you the same feeling as a new vinyl would. For me, it’s about going to my favorite site and finding out that my favorite artist has just released an EP or just that he dropped an exclusive track with some top notch producers.
As a lot of you may know Devin Miles released his Finding My Own EP recently. It was highly anticipated and lots of us could not wait. I have literally sat here listening to the CD on repeat. Not because I have nothing to say, but because I’m speechless. Im blown way with each track. You listen to “The Beginning” featuring Young Scolla and already the bar is set high. Now this track was released many weeks back and even then I was amazed. Then “Heart Strings” starts, and Devin kills an acoustic track. How many artists can do that?
I could have sat here all day listed off each track and what I loved about them. That would just get boring, but I will promise that if you are a fan of Devin then you won’t be disappointed at any single moment. It’s like when you go to grandma’s house for her famous apple pie. No matter what, it will cheer you up.
Devin Miles is young, not to mention hes basically a rookie. When a rookie gets in the game its hard for them to stand on their own two feet and take the hate and disrespect. Even though he has major support of some of the biggest names in Hip-hop right now, just to mention a few; Mac Miller and Wiz Khalifa. He still has some hurdles to get over. Honestly, Im not in the least bit worried. I think he’s here for good, so get used to it.
