Is there something Miles Brown cannot do?
Earlier than he’d even turned 10 years previous, the wunderkind had already made a reputation for himself as a preternaturally gifted dancer and landed the position of Jack Johnson on ABC’s Black-ish. And now, two months shy of his sixteenth birthday and simply days away from the launch of the hit sitcom’s seventh season on Wednesday, Oct. 21, Miles has gone and dropped an album.
On We The Future, the multi-hyphenate follows within the footsteps of rapper father Wildchild with a group of 15 unique hip-hop tracks and remixes which are rooted in Miles’ want to champion positivity, household ties, robust psychological well being, equality, and the combat towards racial injustice. That includes visitor appearances from Dame D.O.L.L.A., Jidenna, Tevin Campbell, Slick Rick and, adorably, his personal dad—to not point out shout-outs from artists like Redman, Methodology Man, Massive Daddy Kane, Rakim, Flava Flav, Post Malone, and Macklemore on “Feeling Impressed”—the album is Miles’ name to the following era of leaders to acknowledge and personal their energy and budding authority.
