“Ez Mil spat his verses with the fire and speed of Eminem – one of his inspirations, whom he shouts out on the track – while seamlessly switching between three (!) languages: English, Tagalog and Ilocano.” – NME
“On his song “Panalo” (Win), he encourages everyone to be proud of who they are, no matter where they are from and where they currently are. On this Wish Bus jaw-dropping performance, Ez Mil raps in 3 different languages English, Tagalog (Filipino) & Ilocano.” – Allhiphop
23-year-old Philippines-born, Las Vegas-based musician Ez Mil shares his third single “27 Bodies,” along with an official music video. The new track is from his second studio album, DU4LI7Y, (Duality), out this summer, under FFP Records and distributed by Virgin Music/UMG. The track, produced and written by Ez Mil himself, puts the rapper’s lyrical and rhythmic skills on display, proving he’s an artist to keep an eye on.
This is Ez Mil’s take on putting his own instrumentals to his “24 Bars Challenge” — which racked up more than 7.9 million views on his original YouTube upload — with a twist of speaking truth about our society. “27” is his favorite number and “bodies” represents victims of societal brutality. On the new single, he says, “I hope my track enlightens people, or at least make them critically think and be aware of our society. Let’s not get blindsided with the good and be ignorant with evil.”
“27 Bodies” follows the previously released ode to the Philippines, “Dalawampu’t Dalawang OO (2200),” and an official music video recently followed. Rapped in Tagalog, the national language of the Philippines, the track pays homage to his hometown, Olongapo City, Philippines and served as an apt segue into his most recent tour of his home country. For the first time ever, Ez Mil performed to legions of fans live across the Philippines for six dates from April to May, concluding with an unforgettable show in his hometown. Ez Mil’s next show will also be in Olongapo City on July 2nd, and he’ll play 1MX London 2022 on July 30th.
The upcoming album’s explosive first single, “Re-Up,” was his first of 2022, and highlights his aggressive vocal style and ability to expertly turn any beat into his own as Ez Mil seamlessly switches back and forth between Tagalog and English providing listeners with verses in each language.
DU4LI7Y, the second LP from Ez Mil due out this summer, is a continuation of his first, 2020 album, Act 1. Where Act 1 envelops Ez Mil in a haze of darkness, DU4LI7Y sees him emerge from that darkness back into the light as he returns to both his roots and to himself. It’s a story of repentance and atonement that highlights Ez Mil’s unparalleled genre fluidity and reveals a more mature, refined muscian.
Recently, Ez Mil appeared on the famed Apple Music radio show, the Charlie Sloth Rap Show, which has featured everyone from Drake to Stormzy to Migos. The impressive Fire in the Booth episode and here on YouTube, gives listeners a new opportunity to witness Ez Mil’s effortless ability to perform on the spot and brilliantly weave in and out of Tagalog and English. In 2021, Ez Mil made a major splash with his hit song, “Panalo,” performing it on Wish Bus USA, a video that has since garnered almost 71 million views. Ez Mil then released a special version of the video, celebrating boxing icon and Filipino Senator Manny Pacquiao. Ez Mil then appeared on LA’s Power 106 last year, where he performed an emotionally-charged freestyle nodding to Nipsey Hussle and YG. Notably, he boasts 1.1 million likes on Facebook, close to 700,000 subscribers on YouTube, and 365,000 followers on TikTok.
“27 Bodies,” out everywhere now, brilliantly displays Ez Mil’s versatility from production, writing, rhythm and passionate, hard-hitting delivery. Ez Mil continues to put the Philippines on the map, blending genres and transcending borders. “Dalawampu’t Dalawang OO (2200)” and “Re-Up” are out everywhere now, with much more in store. Ez Mil’s forthcoming second LP, DU4LI7Y, is due out this summer via FFP Records. Keep up with Ez Mil on Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube and stay tuned for much more from the rising musician.
