After Manny Loudpacks profiled T. Mills in a swag watch, I have been intrigued by the T. Mills wave. While I initially was reluctant to co-sign his image, I listened to the music…and it was a rap! This kid is a super star. Kind of got the same feeling listening to his Leaving Home mixtape that I got when I first heard Wiz Khalifa’s Flight School. Except for the fact Mills is making music that is even more “polished”.
Plus this kid has a real fan base regardless of if he is getting any media hype. At his show in NYC I literally saw a 16 year old girl steal T’s water bottle from the stage and proceed to take turns drinking out of it with her friends. Ain’t none of these cool guy rappers have a wave like that. I’m sorry.
Mills breaks down how how he is genre-less, dealing with crazy groupies/fans, hip-hop heads who may be resistant to his sound, and why he represents youth culture. Swag on one hundred thousand!
