as if releasing a fantastic pair of eps and a damn good mixtape this year wasn’t enough, wisconsin rapper milo plans to release a new ep from his side project, scallops hotel. the ep, entitled poplar grove (or how to rap with a hammer), is set to drop on november 19th and features production from iglooghost, lee bannon, and busdriver. if you can’t wait five days to hear the whole thing (i can’t either, don’t worry), milo has remedied this situation by streaming the ep’s lead single, “xergiok’s chagrin (a song for jib).” the self-produced joint is dark and contains some of the best lyrics i’ve ever heard this guy proclaim. check it out below.
in my interview with riley lake last friday, the producer of milo’s upcoming mixtape cavalcade hinted at the possibility of its lead single dropping some time this week. call him prophetic or just simply well-informed, but riley was right; listen to and snag a free download of “ecclesiastes” below, courtesy of hellfyre club’s soundcloud page. the full mixtape drops on july 9th.
