"It's been a long time comin'."

At midnight,

Milwaukee lyricist,

Milwaukee wordsmith,

Milwaukee poet

bliss & alice

released his sophomore

offering, Mama Tried.

Two-and-a-half years

since Poetry Volume 1:

The Shit Talker Tape,

with only a few

sporadic features,

and he finally returns

to the spotlight

with dense lyricism,

sharp lines, rewindable

tongue twisters,

and an incredible ear

(or two)

for beats. 

Spin this one back

1,000 times

and then once more

for good measure.

You can find

Mama Tried

somewhere up high

on my end of the year

list. Know that.
