Critical praise for Devin Miles:

“Devin Miles is doing well for a 21-year old college dropout.”  The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

“Devin does a great job of juxtaposing his past and present situations, giving the listener a vivid picture of where he came from, and why his current success deserves to be celebrated.” – XXL

“With the persistence, poise, and growth Devin Miles has displayed over the past two years, one has to know that his encounters with success are inevitable.” – Jenesis Magazine

Devin Miles’s chances in this game are improving with each new release… We’re definitely anticipating the next move.” – HotNewHipHop

I think this kid might get better every time I hear him spit. Devin’s making this stuff look easy” – YouHeardThatNew

The Song:

With his forthcoming album, Pixburgh, slated for an October 14 release, rapper Devin Miles shares a standalone single, “No Different.” In their premiere of the track, Okayplayer calls it “a jazzed-up, ivory-flecked joint,” adding that “there’s a serious swagger to this young MC, one that isn’t hinged on shiny things or acting too tough.” The song is produced by Christo as Devin kicks rhymes aspired by go-getters and dream chasers.

“No Different” follows the release of the album’s first single, “Came Up,” which debuted via XXL earlier this month. The Adothegod production is atmospheric and as XXL mentions, it “provides a terrific backdrop to the slick lyrical styling’s of Devin Miles, who sets the tone of the song from the outset with the dizzyingly catch hook.” Earlier this year, Devin performed as an open for G-Eazy and Rockie Fresh on select tour dates. In July, fans got an in-depth look at his rise to prominence in a cover story feature with Jenesis Magazine. The young MC has also been getting local recognition, as he recently had a huge spread in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. With his forthcoming album, Pixburgh, now available for pre-order on iTunes, Devin is carving out a definitive lane for himself in the rap game, and he continues to prove why he’s someone you’ll want to keep your eye on.

Devin Miles’ Background:

Standing strong at 500,000 YouTube views coupled with a million Soundcloud plays, Devin Miles is the latest self-made voice from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania challenging he status quo of hip-hop. However, contrary to local voices like Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller—the latter of whom has been a longtime close friend—Miles aims to show his personal Pixburgh, a complex view of city-life. “I’m trying to show people the depth of Pitt,” says the early-twenties rapper and producer, disagreeing with pop culture’s portrayal of partying, Steelers, and stacked sandwiches. His title, an homage to the regional dialect, represents a star who came from and thrives in a unique place and time. Fused with Devin’s most honest and courageous lyrics to date, the Fall 2014 release is candid snapshots of the artist and the man, immersed in his city.
