Hip Hop Helping Homeless

Hip Hop Helping Homless

A Movement and a Mission

Minneapolis, MN April 3, 2015 – Minneapolis Hip-Hop Artist Nathan John Mills, aka Nate Millyunz invites the Twin Cities Area Hip-Hop community to his event “Spring Forward For The Homeless.” The mission of this event is to help and support homeless people within our community who are living on the streets. The definitive goal is to get everyone to join hands and collaboratively help those in need in any possible way. The “Spring Forward For The Homeless” event is sponsored by Millyunz’s own clothing clothing line, “Swuego Clothing Company” and “The UndergroundCity TV.”

The big event is scheduled to take place on April 17, 2015 at Mill City Nights (Nether Bar) in downtown Minneapolis (111 N 5th St, Minneapolis, MN 55403). Entry to the event is free if you supply a non-perishable food item at the door. Participants who bring the highest amount of food donations will have a chance to receive free merchandise from the “Swuego Clothing Line” collection, along with a chance to be in the studio with Millyunz for his first live studio performance. The live performance is to be aired on SPNN (Channel 15 – Comcast). The event starts time is 9:00 PM with music from DJ Northstar. The live performances begin at 9:30 PM and will include numerous local hip-hop acts. Other event details can be found by visiting the official website at www.hiphophelpinghomeless.com.

Nate’s personal goal for this event; and any future event, is two-fold. First and foremost he hopes to help those in need within his community; secondly, he desires to show the community the good things that can derive from the local hip-hop scene. “The concept was inspired following a meeting I had with a local promoter who informed me that there was some rumors that the Minnesota legislature was trying to shut down all Hip-Hop shows in Minnesota. At the same time, we started to see many of the venues no longer allowing Hip-Hop related shows. I realized that the community only hears about hip-hop when there is a negative outcome. They don’t hear about all of the positive things that Hip-Hop artists and fans do for others in the time of need. I have had the opportunity to be involved in several different charity events and found it to be very full-filling.

On Christmas Day, I had the opportunity to serve residents at the Salvation Army shelter and after having spent some time with them I realized I wanted to do more to help other people. I put together some gift bags for them and it was the greatest feeling in the world to see how appreciative they were. After I left the event I knew I wanted to do more. I wanted to something where anyone who wanted to be involved could contribute in some fashion. Many of my fans like to be involved and always ask me what they can do to help. That is what led me to the concept of doing two events to help the homeless shelter.

Our spring event will be food donations and our fall event (“Fall Forward For The Homeless”) will consist of donations to keep the homeless warm such as hats, gloves, and blankets. My dream is to have success with our 2015 events and be able to make this an annual affair. An even bigger dream is to have other states get involved and replicate this movement in other communities I would share my website, flier and social media platforms so that others are not reinventing the wheel. Our goal is to encourage artists, promoters, venues and fans from all over the globe to expand this movement. All of the performers and promoters are donating their time so that we have no expenses. All of the donations will go to the organizations we have worked with such as the Salvation Army and People Helping People.” ~ Nathan John Mills

The true meaning of this event is to embark on the small things. Each helping hand can make a difference and Nate Millyunz is hoping that by starting a movement consistent with positivity within the local hip-hop he can not only help, but also open the minds of people everywhere.

50 Shades Mixtape Release

“50 SHADES” MIXTAPE RELEASE May 7, 2015

Nate Millyunz is excited to be approaching the highly anticipated release of “50 SHADES”. The mix-tape “50 SHADES” is finally near completion with an April release. This project is a follow- up project to his “The Distress Kit” album that released February 2014, and his “Waves” E.P. which released early September 2014. As always, Nate’s intention for the project is to display versatility in his writing and composition while showing his progression from previous projects. Nate kicked off the first single release from “50 SHADES” with an official music video for his “LifeSaver” track. This was a very deep track, and was crafted to hit home with anyone who has experienced the loss of a loved one in any form. The lyrics to the hook are guaranteed to resonatewith listeners who have experienced a loss.

Be on the look-out for his single “Equilibrium” which displays Nate’s ability to cross over into the R&B realm. This song gives his perspective on a relationship that is completely bad for both parties. This is a record that many will be able to relate to. Nate paints a vivid picture of a woman who is perfectly beautiful in a physical aspect, however she is controlling and bad for him behind closed doors.
Somewhere in the middle of this mix-tape, listeners will come across a track named “Summer Soltice” featuring N7NDEZ (who’s album “1821” will be released early summer with a song correlating perfectly to this one). This song was written “unconsciously” so to speak, meaning the lyrics are left to the listener to interpret. Produced completely from scratch by Nate and N7NDEZ, this is one track you do not want to skip on the project.

“No Man’s Land” may be low-key, but is one of the most lyrical songs on the entire project. In this song, Nate subliminally speaks on his struggles in the world of music and relationships. The song is fundamentally based on how you can’t trust people in the music industry, as everyone is out for themselves. The big final question is always, “what song will knock my speakers the hardest?” Nate has a few tracks that are solid rebuttals for that. Be sure to check out the trippy hit record “Brainwash” which has a visual currently in the works. In this single, Nate aims to impress with one of his most deadly flows yet.

Lastly, but certainly not least, Millyunz recruits labelmate & reptilian kin, GRHYME, to bring you the “Skreet Anthem of 2015”. This record will bring the gorillas out the trunk in a hood near you.
With a predictable hook that any dropout can easily recite, Skrate Hunnits comes hot off the griddle with Millyunz first at bat. Not surprisingly, The Crazy Bastard himself silences any naysayer with his confidence paired with nonchalance & unpredictable rhyme schemes. Shouting out the 024 skrate out the gate, Farmington’s area code (55024) G sets the stage for a grim night out in Minneapolis.

To push the knife in for the kill, GRHYME responds with his dopest verse yet. A beast is unleashed over who would have guessed? 16 bars. Be sure to roll through your city wit the windows down just let em’ know who run it.
The mix- tape is 17 songs. As a special bonus to all of his supporters, the “WAVES” E.P. (5 additional songs) will also be included on all hard copies of the new mix-tape. Pre-Order your hard copy today for FREE on his online store at www.natemillyunz.com .
