Milly D – The River Of Life [Audio]

Hamilton, ON – Hamilton-based producer Milly D just dropped his debut beat mixtape titled Exposure. Along with this tape drop, Milly D hit us with a single release for a beat titled “The River Of Life.”

Milly D - The River Of Life [Audio] -

This beat bodies everything I love about cloud rap. It’s so mellow and vibed out. I mean – shoot, it’s called “The River Of Life.” You feel me? That title speaks for itself. That ish is deep. I really hope someone gets in on this beat because so many great things could happen. It could easily get turned into a smoked-out weed rap jam. Or it could swing it as one of those highly emotional introspective feelings-inducing joints.

Either way, this is a PSA for all you rap cats out there: if you’re looking to test the waters of cloud rap, you should check Milly’s beats. The tape is full of gems – like when Milly samples the likes of Juicy J and Trey Songz into these mellow breezy vibers, and it’s too beautiful to handle. You can download the entire 9-track tape over here.
