Bas Releases His Third Studio Album ‘Milky Way’

Dreamville season is officially here. Today (Aug. 24), Queens-bred MC Bas decided to re-up with his third solo studio album, Milky Way. Serving as the follow-up to his 2016 sophomore LP, Too High to Riot, the new offering contains thirteen records and a bonus track. The new effort also contains cameos from J. Cole (“Tribe”), A$AP Ferg (“Boca Raton), Correy C, Ari Lennox, and others.

Bas took to Instagram to discuss Milky Way:

“It’s been two and a half years since Too High to Riot. I’ve spent the better part searching for ground,” he wrote in the lengthy caption of the album’s cover art. “We go looking for love in all the wrong places. We go on radio shows looking for love from the hosts and their audience. We put out albums, our truths, in hopes the public will love them and catapult us to great successes. We hope our labels will love how the singles perform. We conquer as many women as we can as if it’ll make us love ourselves. Instead of finding one that who shows you the man you could be. We share only the good parts of our lives on social media. In hopes of making people fall in love with us. One like at a time.”

“This album is about finding ground, “Bas added.  “About not poisoning your own well. About finding and tethering yourself to the love that truly fulfills you. Love of self. Love of others. Lovers. Family. Friends. Fans. You’ve all given me all the affirmation I’ll ever need. That is the Milky Way. The only way to go.”

The album is rolling out at midnight in your region of the world!! Excited would be an understatement, but since it’s already out in corners of the earth far from where I stay, I’d like to share a few words about this album.

The Paris-born rapper was one of Cole’s first signings to Dreamville back in 2014. He’s built a solid following since releasing his debut album, Last Winter, the same year. Also, be on the lookout for J.I.D.’s Dicaprio 2 album.
