In July, once news broke that Filipino-American rapper and singer EZ Mil was hanging out and signing with Hip Hop royalty, namely Dr. Dre and Eminem, the Asian Hip-Hop world shook with anticipation. Now, he’s out hitting popular Hip-Hop podcasts to tell his story and show off his crazy freestyle skills.
During The Bootleg Kev Podcast, EZ Mil describes how his family moved to America, first to Los Angeles and then to Las Vegas. Then he talks about his love of making Death Metal songs and his favorite bands like Dying Fetus and Aborted. Bootleg Kev then pries back a few layers and questions him about his life-changing meet-ups with hip-hop icons, Eminem and Dr. Dre.
As usual on these podcasts, EZ Mil was asked to show off his skills on the mic so the audience could feel what Em and Dre saw in him, and EZ Mil impressed everyone by dropping rhymes in English, Tagalog, and back in English again. It’s a dope two minutes that proves that EZ Mil has the potential to be the first global Asian Hip-Hop superstar coming from the ground up.
Before freestyling, Ez Mil listed his hop-hop influences while growing up: “Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, A$AP Rocky, Tech N9ne, Hopsin, Snoop Dogg.” Check out the interview and the freestyle below:
