Black Milk’s Cousin Releases First Video From Forthcomin​g ‘For Namesake’ LP…


New Video: Nametag &  Nameless f/ Mahd “Hookless”

 Black Milk’s Cousin  releases first video from forthcoming For Namesake LP


Nametag grew up  in Detroit’s  east, west, and north sides, constantly being shuffled around with his mother to  avoid repercussions of his father’s drug addiction. He dealt with the familial  struggles and nomadic lifestyle by burying himself into his notebook, penning  lyrics about his experiences and drawing inspiration from legends like Rakim. He  quickly became the latest member of a family chockfull of R&B and gospel  vocalists, rhyming with his friends and relatives such as his cousins, Black Milk and Black Beethoven and he got involved in  Detroit’s hip-hop history early, and in a big way: his first placement was on Slum Village’s ‘Dirty District Vol. 1’ compilation. 

 From there, Nametag  continued to body other Motor City classics such as Slum Village’s Dirty District Vol. 2 & his  cousin’s Black Milk’s ‘Popular Demand’ and ‘Caltroit.’ But while contributing to  others’ artist’s projects, Nametag continued to build his own footing with a  collection of critically-acclaimed mixtapes, EPs and a full length album, ‘The  Name Is Tag’; which eventually earned the respect of indie rap  heavyweights and publications such as XXL, 2DopeBoyz, Detroit Free Press & more. 

 With appearances by  Motor City vets (Black Milk, Guilty Simpson, Miz Korona)  and youngsters (Mahd, Jahshua Smith)  alike, ‘For Namesake’ continues to cement  Nametag & Nameless as one of Detroit’s fastest rising  talents.

 For  Namesake” will be released on 4-16-2013
