Live Milliyonic the new album from Milliyon is a true fusion of rap, pop, rock and soul with the authentic sound and feel of southern hip hop. The first rap single, "A-Milliyon", available on iTunes today, is an effective mission statement. Lyrically, the song is infectious with big bass and 808's. The song presents the metaphor of living "Milliyonic," an effort to get the message of living for God to millions upon millions.
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 #1 on the Gospel Billboard charts. He also wrote the hit song, "Holy Ghost
Holiday" on James
Fortune's record "Encore
" which debuted at #2 on the Gospel Billboard chart.
On Live Milliyonic, the song "Good Day
" pulls from Milliyon's past challenging experiences and translates those emotions and triumph into an encouraging anthem. "My Everything
" is the switch up. It's a pop song that bridges the feel of this album together. Live Milliyonic is arguably a palate of music that doesn't sound forced while striving to be authentically appealing to everyone. "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. "It's eclectic like me and truly reflects me, not just as a Rap/Pop artist but as a Christian Culture Artist," he explains. "As a Christian I live in this world but the way I live my life, even if I like hip hop, rock or pop music, it's different because of my commitment to God."
True Story: A Robbery Gone Right "I AM MILLIYONIC"
Milliyon is more than a catchy stage name. It stems from his personal definition of "MILLIYONIC" which means: to reach an uncountable number of people for God by living a lifestyle that has immeasurable impact. "I am Milliyonic" seems to be catching on and growing virally online via YouTube as young people are sharing their personal stories about how they too live Milliyonic. "It's not about religion. It's our flow, from the way we walk, to the way we live, from the things we say, to the love we give. Everything
we do is out loud," says Milliyon. Check out Milliyon's story of a robbery gone right, while demonstrating what it means to live "Milliyonic" and other "I am Milliyonic" videos here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hF5qL0FTD2s
