Holding a spot on the front cover of the Redeye, for a full documentary piece featuring Treated Crew's Saint Millie.

This doc shows us how important your grind is especially being one amongst many, and during the festivities at SXSW we see how Saint Millie handles things from the start of heading to Texas to coming back.
"At SXSW, Saint Millie planned to maximize his exposure. “I was trying to put myself in a better position than if I hadn’t gone down there,” he says. He also got to witness the music industry’s massive scale first-hand. SXSW listed more than 2,000 artists as “official” performers, not factoring in artists like Millie, who attend with hopes of making something happen spontaneously. The goal, the rapper says, was to connect with audiences and turn new listeners into lifetime fans."
