Milano - The Hurt Locker Mixtape

As someone who friggin' loves D.I.T.C. and desperately wants one last official group album from the iconic NYC crew, Milano's emceeing holds a special spot in my heart...

One of the diggin crew's best offerings will always be their self titled debut LP, which has over the years taken on the monikor "Worldwide", thanks to the cover. Milano was lucky enough to be featured on two of the tracks "Where Ya At" & "Hey Luv") alongside fellow noteworthy Diggin affiliates Big Pun and Cuban Link. He did a great job holding his own and would forever be someone I always thought really should've tried more aggresively to get their music out there for heads to consume. He's popped up here and there over the years, most recently on that Grim Team album, his long awaited debut "Sidewalk Stories" in 08' and that ill ass P Brothers album "The Gas" from last year, but nothing really ever touches the ish' he collab'd on with D.I.T.C. back at the end of the 90's.

Now a full blown official member of the oft splintered and inactive crew and sporting his new add-on alias, Milano "Constantine" hits us in the head w/ some of his more recent material on his brand new tape "The Hurt Locker". If we're lucky than hopefully this jawn will pack as much power and depth as the actual movie, which took home 6 Academy Awards last year and registered as one of my favorite flicks ever.
