Ghiath Matar is dead. That’s the first thing Rory Ferreira wants you to know on “who told you to think??!!?!?!?!,” his most recent album under the moniker milo. Since 2011, Ferreira has had a steady output of mixtapes and albums, both as milo and as Scallops Hotel, and he has always seemed comfortable orbiting the rap world with his Hellfyre Club compatriots, unconcerned with popular opinion. Milo’s raps are stubborn and rich in literary and historical references. As a listener, you’re going to have to put in work. He grew up in Maine and Wisconsin and ran circuits through Chicago and LA’s indie rap scene, but it’s impossible to label him as sounding like a city. To put it bluntly, milo’s in his own lane.
