MILLYZ and Friends @ HOB Boston

It has been said that getting notable attention nation wide is hard for artist in Massachusetts. However over the past several years a few artists have been knocking on the door of superstardom. BLANCO, the artist known as MILLYZ, is the focus of this article.

MILLYZ has been putting in work for years. Watching his interview on POWER 105.1’s BREAKFAST CLUB really put that in perspective. From the first night we seen him at that old club, CAPRICE downtown in 2011, all the way to his Cinco de Mayo homecoming concert at House of Blues Boston. Cambridge’s own MILLYZ really has come a long way.

Snatched up by JADAKISS and his SO RASPY team, MILLYZ is aiming to make a real impact in the industry. JADA accompanied the Cambridge star to POWER 105.1’s BREAKFAST CLUB earlier that week. During the interview,  they both illustrated how much work they have been putting in to make good music for those who love real Hiphop, Hiigh Level Rap, if you will.

Last time we checked in with MILLYZ he had just put out BLANCO 4. It’s early May ‘23 and BLANCO 6 has been in rotation for a few weeks now. You can hear the progress MILLYZ has been making in his music. As his confidence grows his music and delivery improves. Every song on his latest project resonates especially if your into introspective rap.

On May 5th, 2023 BLANCO kicks off his MILLYZ AND FRIENDS Tour at House of Blues Boston and he truly couldn’t have picked a better venue. The place, of course, was sold out_ packed to the brim with fans from all over New England ready and eager to see the potentially biggest artist coming from the Boston area.

With a new fire project out gaining spins and an arsenal of tracks in the vault, MILLYZ was more than prepared to put on a good show. To up the ante, BLANCO brought a few other recording artist to the stage with him in order to deliver an even more enjoyable show for those in attendance.

That boy from Marion, ALBEE AL came out to perform Risk Takers with MILLYZ a few other tracks. AL didn’t disappoint as he delivered that energy that he is so well known for. It’s dope to see the MASS/ JERSEY link up like that before they both respectfully really blow. Don’t sleep, we’ve been keeping tabs on ALBEE since 2019 when he was on bail.  Go check out KODA if you haven’t yet! He’s a great storyteller and keeps his audience engaged.

DAVE EAST is a more notable artist that hit the stage that night. EAST and MILLYZ have been linking up for projects since about early 2020 and dropped a full featured album last year rightfully titled Pablo & Blanco. The MASS APPEAL RECORDS artist, EAST, has been making noise since 2010 and feels like a great person for MILLYZ to work with to help transition into the game.

It was a star studded event for the Boston local scene. Other than JOYNER LUCAS and BIA, no other artist has been bringing as much energy and attention to the city as MILLYZ. It was great to see him HOB Boston and awesome to see how much support he got from other local artist. GIO DEE came out to perform his track with MILLYZ, entitled Love/ Hate (side note; Check out our video playlist to see the official music video!). DTHEFLYEST came out to play too, but stayed low key.

All in all it was a great night for the Boston HipHop scene. We’re sure MILLYZ AND FRIENDS will continue to sell out throughout the tour which is just awesome to think about. We wish MILLYZ and the rest of the performs prosperity, peace and more success throughout the tour.
