Cleveland’s Ski Mask Malley is one of my favorite artists at the moment and he continues to prove why with this new self-titled joint, which you can peep the official video for above. There’s a little more than what’s on the surface here, though:
This is dedicated is Herman “Herm” Groce, a young king and little brother to Ski Mask Malley and the entire Squad. Herm was shot and killed a little over a week ago by an unknown suspect, obviously jealous of what Herm and his team have going for themselves. Jealously is a motherfucker.
Ironically he also plays the main supporting role in the above video as the male hostage and eventually victim who was put to rest last Wednesday. My he Ball In Paradise and forever live on through us, as we will carry his name on our backs wherever we go.
Herm stood up for what he believed in and was willing to die for it. As tragic as losing Herm is, a lot of people now a days never would of had the heart to handle the situations Herm was never afraid of. He was fearless. 2gz, LSMS, 1200, MONEY BAGZ & now it’s Herms World Forever. BIP LITTLE BROTHER.
Ski Mask’s self-titled project is set to impact later this year. I suggest you keep an ear out for that.

Over the past few months, the good people at RedEye have been documenting Saint Millie’s ‘road to glory’ and are ready to share Millie’s journey from the 312 to Austin, TX for SXSW in a new documentary. Pretty dope, right? We’ll let the RedEye take it from here:
The Chicago music scene is crowded. It’s gritty. It’s completely unforgiving. But one rap artist from the westside of the city refuses to give up. When he’s gutpunched, he pops back up. Time and time again.
Introducing Saint Millie, a 22-year-old musician who believes he is living his “road to glory.” Watch the young artist on his journey, from Chicago to Austin for the South by Southwest Music Festival.
A 3-man team (Sean Ely, Lenny Gilmore, Ernest Wilkins) at RedEye followed Saint Millie and his small entourage around for a couple months with a camera.
The first episode premieres right here on FSD next Wednesday (4/23), so check out the trailer for Road To Glory above and check back next week for the first installment.
