Rapper Milliyon Fuses Rap, Pop, Rock & Soul For New Album 'Live Milliyonic'

Mar 22 2012

Christian rapper Milliyon will release his new album 'Live Milliyonic' on 26th June 2012 with the first single, 'A-Milliyon' available on iTunes and SoundCloud from 10th April. The new album was produced by Randy Hairston (Outkast, Mase, Canton Jones) and Brandon Peavy (Lecrae, Flame, Melinda Watts) and is described as "a true fusion of rap, pop, rock and soul with the authentic sound and feel of southern hip hop".

Milliyon is no stranger to the hip hop or gospel music scene. In the past he has shared the stage with artists such as Rick Ross, T-Pain, Jazzy Phae, Kirk Franklin and Mary Mary. He was formally introduced to the gospel world while on the 'Cajo Family' and 'Kingdom Business' tours with gospel artist Canton Jones. Most recently he was featured on a song entitled 'Bended Knee' on Deitrick Haddon's 'Church On The Moon' album which debuted at number 1 on the Gospel Billboard charts. He also wrote the hit song, 'Holy Ghost Holiday' on James Fortune's record 'Encore' which debuted at number 2 on the Gospel Billboard chart.

"Every song is a reflection of my personal influences in music from Jay-Z and Kanye West to All American Rejects, Canton Jones, Family Force 5 and Leon Timbo" says Milliyon, discussing his new album. "It's eclectic like me and truly reflects me, not just as a Rap/Pop artist but as a Christian Culture Artist. What that means is, as a Christian I live in this world but the way I live my life, even if I love hip hop, rock or pop music, it's different because of my commitment to God."
