Brooklyn-based rapper Half-A-Mill climbed his way up from the underground in the late ‘90s with an initial breakthrough on 1997’s one and only album by The Firm, the supergroup featuring Nas, AZ, Nature and Foxy Brown alongside producers Dr. Dre and the Trackmasters. After this high-profile appearance, Half-a-Mill then started setting the stage for the release of his debut album “Milíon” with the single ”Thug Ones" which featured Noreaga, Kool G Rap, and Musolini, sending ripples through the New York hardcore rap scene. Half-A-Mill was rapping and living that street life, becoming a representative for gangsta rap in NYC. Even though the album didn’t quite reach the commercial success it was expected to do, “Milíon” became an underground classic, featuring guest appearances by AZ, Kool G Rap, Musalini, Noreaga, Ali Vegas and Spice 1, as well as productions by Just Blaze, The Neptunes, DJ Scratch, DJ Ali among others. The record was followed by “Da Hustle Don’t Stop” in 2002 again on Warlock Records, but unfortunately tragedy struck in 2003 when the rapper was shot dead in his home in Brooklyn. We are proud to keep his legacy alive by releasing his underground classic “Milíon” on vinyl for the first time under exclusive license by Warlock Records.
