who told you to think??!!?!?!?! is about boundaries and permissions.
the artist creating their own license to ill.
what it means to answer a call that never comes.
the process of flaw turned idiosyncrasy turned style.
that old transmutation spell,
the happening as one perfects tricks and in turn masters magic.
to set the elenchus upon itself,
to begin a poet and end a rapper
agency
that is what makes the rapper an exceptional artist,
beyond a poet.
in years gone
rappers once focused on getting Free
who told you to think??!!?!?!?!
is a return to form.


i already posted about this in the weekend thread but i figured it deserved it's own, even though i'm pretty sure i'm one of the only people on here who is familiar with this dude's music along with maybe 2 or 3 others. maybe someone will check this out and they'll dig it though, who knows. anyway these were my initial impressions:

"this has been one of my most anticipated 2017 albums ever since it was first announced and it finally dropped last night. i had high expectations after so the flies don't come, my second favorite album of 2015, and this surpassed them on the very first listen. milo has evolved more as an artist in a 5 year timespan than anyone i can think of, if you listen to things that happen at day/night from 2013 and then listen to this the difference is night and day. he went from pretty much doing spoken word over beats to rapping like a next-gen blowdian. he's really come into his own as a producer too, he produced 4 or 5 of the tracks under his "scallops hotel" alias. kenny segal did a bunch too, who produced milo's last album. some great jazzy beats on here. there's a ton of dope features on here as well from elucid, lorde fredd33, sb the moor, self jupiter, and busdriver. overall i'm really feeling this album a lot. definitely has AOTY potential but it's too early to tell, i gotta give it a few more listens. i can't see this getting knocked out of my top 5 though at least. definitely not for everyone, but if you couldn't fuck with his music in the past you should give this a shot, it might surprise you.

favorite tracks:

landscaping (ft. Elucid)
magician (suture)
pablum // CELESKINGIII
sorcerer
yet another (ft. Lorde Fredd33, Signor Benedick the Moor, YCP Beno)
ornette's swan song (ft. Self Jupiter)
embroidering machine
rapper (ft. Busdriver)

so basically the whole damn album lol."

i've listened to the album two more times since then, and my opinion hasn't changed. this is his best album. i also feel like he's managed to avoid the "preachiness" that might have been a turn off to some people on his last album. this is probably AOTY for me right now, even though a lot of y'all probably won't dig it.

yeah i'm pretty sure that cassette sold out the week the bandcamp page went up. he's got a really devoted fanbase, that's how he won mass appeal's album of the year in 2015 over all the other albums that were more well known. it was done tournament style where two albums would be put up against each other and people voted for which one was better, and then the final round ended up being milo's album vs to pimp a butterfly and milo won.

https://massappeal.com/who-the-f-is-milo/

SC, i know you hate kendrick so you should be happy about that. here's his album from 2015 that won, kenny segal produced the whole thing and also did a handful of beats on the new album as well.

top 10 projects of 2017 so far:

1/2. milo who told you to think
1/2. billy woods - known unknowns
3. jonwayne - rap album two
4. doppelgangaz - dopp hopp
5. onry ozzborn c v p ii d
6. kendrick - damn
7. elucid - valley of grace
8. jam baxter - mansion 38
9. lojii & swarvy - due rent
10. quelle chris - being you is great

it's definitely top 2, i just haven't decided which i like better between this and known unknowns. mike eagle's got that album coming out next month too which will probably be top 10.

man, i bet if all that shit didn't go down with hellfyre club we would have gotten an actual group album from them with OME, driver, milo, and nocando. it's a shame.

I listened to the album today and thought it was one of the better albums dropped this year. The guests featured were dope. I liked Busdrivers feature but thought it would be a little better. It almost sounded like he was freestyling to me (was he?)

overall, a very very solid release that shouldn't be slept on. I liked basically the entire album. I think it would be easier to post the tracks I thought were lacking on this album than the tracks that I was feeling

Poet
Note to Mrs.

On a side note, is there a story behind that track Note to Mrs.? I feel like if I knew the story I could appreciate that track more due to the content.

yeah it's possible that busdriver was freestyling or at least intended for it to come across that way, would makes sense considering the name of the song and general theme of it. i liked his verse though, it came across a lot more loose and free flowing than milo's which was more exact and calculated. i thought it was a nice contrast.

i thought note to mrs. was pretty underwhelming too, i know he got married
not to long ago, so it's probably just a song dedicated to his wife. i can appreciate it for that, but it's definitely the weakest track on the album imo.

he's a rapper from milwaukee, he released a mixtape back in 2011 called i wish my brother rob was here, which was dedicated to his best friend who drowned. after that he released an album called "milo takes baths" which was him rapping over baths production, and he thought anticon would fuck with him because of that but they ended up being pretty pissed that he used those beats without permission.

after that he spent a while trying to find a label to call home and it just wasn't happening, then in the middle of that either busdriver or nocando reached out to him and invited him to join this new crew/collective/label, hellfyre club. he accepted then moved to LA, and recorded his album a toothpaste suburb there which was released on hellfyre club. some shit went down though where he didn't get paid and a lot of the promises that were made to him regarding promotion and physicals that fell through as well. so then hellfyre kind of fell apart and milo moved back to milwaukee, and started his own label called ruby yacht thieves guild and now i'm pretty sure he lives in maine. he's also got a side project called scallops hotel that he uses to experiment and i guess do or say stuff that he considers to be outside of the "milo" canon, like viktor vaughn compared to MF DOOM. there might be some details i forgot to mention but thats the general idea.

i thought ilah was great, this album is actually what bumped it out of my top 10 lol.

nah he didn't. shaun, one of the heads at anticon, said he didn't think milo takes baths was "anything special" and then warned him not to sell the project lol. at that point i don't think milo would have accepted the offer even if they changed their minds. things just kind of fell into place with hellfyre club i guess, especially since OME and busdriver are two of milo's biggest influences.

wolf vs snake isn't in my top 10, i still think it's a great album though. probably top 25. ichi is dope, but there's just been so many good releases this year.

you hear this track he dropped not too long ago?

so you'd rather have a dead forum due to you driving everyone away than one with a few mainstream rap posts that you could easily ignore? i guess i just don't understand how people posting music you don't like affects you negatively, while every post you make complaining about it does since that's time you're taking from your life that you'll never get back. keep doing you though, and i agree this is one of your better usernames so far.

you really don't respond well to logic and reasoning do you?

whenever someone asks you a question that might require you to self reflect for half a second and actually use your brain to think about what you're doing, you just deflect it and resort to petty insults.

Based on this thread, I think I'll bump this to the top o the listening list.

hmm have you listened to any of his other albums before? what about the armand hammer stuff with elucid? his style might take some time to grow on you, took me a minute at first too but everything he's done since cape verde in 2010 has been gold imo. how many listens did you give it?
