When it comes to making a comeback, there is no harder genre to break back into than rap.
When it comes to making a comeback, there is no harder genre to break back into than rap. Legendary acts like EPMD, Naughty by Nature, and Rakim have all attempted comebacks in recent years with less than stellar results. Miilkbone—the New Jersey-based rapper who first entered hip-hop's collective conscious- ness with "Keep It Real" from 1995's Da Miilkcrate (Capitol)—is the latest MC to attempt this feat with this, his first set in nearly six years. Although Miilkbone's lyrical flow hasn't changed, the times have. Tracks like "Sex, Money, Drugs, Cars" and "Yes Yes Y'all" come off as rather simplistic when compared with what his contemporaries are offering. That said, U Got Miilk? has fine moments like "Enemy of State," which features a well-written narrative of revenge. U Got Miilk? also features a stellar guest turn from fellow New Jersey native Tame One (of the Artifactz) on "A Few Good Men."––RH
