New York City native Jae Millz has been waiting years to release his debut album, but his drive is stronger than ever. The Young Money Records rapper explained that after having two seizures in his sleep last year, he was inspired to name his album Nothing is Promised after what he gleaned from his experiences.
“The title come from [me] having two seizures in the previous year,” he told BBC Radio 1’s Tim Westwood. “I had them in my sleep. It’s like you wake up and you don’t know what happened. I had them from stress or low blood sugar and pressure.”
Though his intended major label debut Back to the Future got scrapped, Millz feels like he’s starting to see the bigger picture. “From that, I just figure that it’s bigger than the whole Back to the Future concept and battles and music,” he continued. “Nothing is promised. I feel like I might possibly have another seizure and I might not make it through, knock on wood. So I’ma get everything out on this album, Nothing is Promised.”
His pending release comes after several failed major label deals, which he claims was a blessing in disguise. “I had Back to the Future. I had the ‘No, No, No’ and ‘My Swag,’ ” he said. “I just felt like from Warner Bros. to the SRC deal and the whole Universal deal, Back to the Future, you’re trying it with three different labels and it don’t work. Try something else. That’s a sign from God."
