St. Millie, hailing from the Westside of Chicago, drops his new mixtape “No Religion But Up”. Give him a good listen & download this mixtape, there’s a couple slammers on there. - Elevator


No Religion But Up is the debut mixtape from Chicago emcee, St. Millie. As the title suggests, No Religion But Up is a personal and reflective offering, with Millie drawing from past experiences and future aspirations. Production on the mixtape is handled predominantly by Von Vuai and The Gift, both of whom supply Millie with genre-crossing sounds still rooted in Hip Hop. Millie emphasizes the intimacy of the mixtape through a series of interview snippets peppered throughout the track list, allowing listeners another chance to get familiar.

On March 27th we will host a special edition of Digital Freshness at Reggie’s. This is the first Digital Freshness that will feature a complete lineup of artists 21 or younger, and will showcase some of the best up and coming talent Chicago has to offer. These are the new-new emcees. As artists like YP, Hollywood Holt, L.E.P., Rockie Fresh, Mano, Scheme, Add-2, etc all take the next steps in their careers and go national, this is a new crop with the potential to supply Chicago’s underground with a steady stream of music. While they’ve started to populate Chicago blogs, they are relatively new to Chicago stages with just a few shows under their belts. This Digital Freshness puts them all one stage with the aim to formally introduce them as new artists to check for, and hopefully ones that a new generation of Chicago Hip Hop can build around and grow with. Take a closer look at each featured artist below, and be sure to catch them on March 27th at Digital Freshness: Under 21 Edition.

St. Millie
St. Millie is by the far the freshest face on this list, and was highly recommended by Jugrnaut as an addition to Digital Freshness. While he may be new, he’s got an impressive team behind him, including The Gift, who handled a lot of production on Rockie’s Driving 88 and The Otherside. Millie made a strong entrance with his debut song, “Eight2Nine”, which also featured Rockie Fresh. St. Millie will have a chance to prove himself at Reggie’s on the 27th, and I know he also has plenty of new material just awaiting release.

You can catch all of the artists above at Digital Freshness: Under 21 Edition at Reggie’s on March 27th. Tickets are available at Jugrnaut as well as online via Reggie’s. - Ruby Hornet

It is no longer possible for me to ignore the name St. Millie. He definitely some buzz around him right now. His latest release is a visual for a loosie he did over A$AP Rocky's "Pretty Flacko". Look for St. Millie to drop a new project soon, and check the event calendar to catch him live alongside Chance The Rapper and Show You Suck at Lincoln Hall next month. - GoIll.net

Millie brings in Vic Spencer and Dre Highlife to assist him with his latest drop. Hella smooth? Indeed. NoReligionButUp is on the way. - Fake Shore Drive


“50 Tyson goes to Harvard”

Last week I published an article featuring Dope Chicago Artists Under 21, which highlighted all of the acts on our Digital Freshness Under 21 Edition. Of all the artists I featured, St. Millie, is probably the least proven and least known of the bunch. I see this Digital Freshness as a potential coming out party for Millie, and his chance to announce himself alongside other young artists generating a lot of buzz. I believe his profile will rise after the public hears “Something Good”, his new song produced by The Gift. The record uses a Maverick Sabre, and allows St. Millie to really introduce himself to listeners beyond normal swag-rap. Listen and download it below. And don’t miss Digital Freshness 3/27 at Reggie’s.

Also watch the new trailer for St. Millie’s forthcoming mixtape, No Religion But Up. - Ruby Hornet

Bio

This is the story of one who will take it to the limit to achieve.

In today's world, it seems that many artists are born overnight, leaving some with the absence of proper development and a true understanding of their craft. Lyricism and delivery must strike a balance with performance and vocal quality. Image must correlate with theme. The creative process must encompass a journey. And all must come together to create the story of the artist himself.

As a rising young artist, St. Millie has already begun to blaze a trail and embody the essence of a true emcee. Having grown up in both the suburbs and Chicago’s West Side, Millie has endured loss and distant parental relationships from an early age. With the support of his extended family and his own persevering spirit, he has waded through struggle and crossed into the threshold of Chicago's emerging hip hop scene.

Millie's career interest in music started in sixth grade. Like many young MC's, he found himself dropping his own rhythmic vocals on beat tracks before anyone ever taught him how. It was throughout his middle school years that he would learn how to shape his craft and make his music heard. Once in high school, he formed a group called The Section, resulting in a collaborative debut EP with Anton Genius that brought a digital download ranking of close to 2,500.

In 2008, as a student at Oak Park and River Forest High School, he opened up for DJ Kool Herc at the University of Illinois Chicago, topping that with a successful performance at Nike Headquarters. At the top of 2009, he was selected to join the ‘Brave New Voices' All Star Team, leading to another performance at the Chicago Theater, and ultimately, a feature at the Taste of Chicago, held annually in Chicago's Grant Park. By Summer of 2010, he had risen to new level by promoting and touring with breakout music group Kids These Days. Shortly after, The Section split due to creative differences, but not before they got a chance to work with Shorty Capone of Raw Dope Records.

The Fall of 2011 marked the beginning of the 'Chvrch Music' movement and the start of his first solo project, No Religion But Up. Teaming with producers Von Vuai, Drew Hurt, and Cartoonz member The Gift, the project completed and became available for download in the Fall of 2012. The first official single, 'Something Good,' produced by The Gift, samples vocalist Maverick Sabre and offers a great introduction to Millie and Chvrch Music. Second single 'Eight2Nine' features Rick Ross’ newest MMG signee, artist Rockie Fresh, with production by Von Vuai. Since its initial drop in the Spring of 2012, its garnered major online buzz and a spin on Chicago’s WGCI radio. No Religion But Up, a debut mixtape showcasing his versatile artistry, marks Millie's greatest leap forward and shows promise that he will only continue to evolve.

Millie's music exudes his own brand of style, originality, and creativity. Fused with the greater efforts of Chvrch Music, Millie's message speaks for all to embrace our common humanity; to recognize and break the societal barriers that inhibit progress. With lyrics born from his poetic roots and production matched to complement his independent style, the music finds its own unique blend. His relaxed delivery carries a feel good flow and creates an aura to invite inspiration and provide motivation to all who listen.
