“a compact 10-track collaboration between MilkDrop (lyricist) and D/Will (producer), two of Kansas City's veteran hip-hop artists....”

“John-Alan Suter, alias Milkdrop, knows how to get the music out: Give it away for free! We love the free. Boost your local playlist with two tracks from his mixtape, Rise Before the Fall, which he'll be releasing, for free, March 10.”

“Milkdrop was probably one of my favorite sets....”

“Local hip hop collective Soul Providers drops this minimix to display their skills as emcees, DJs, and producers in advance of their December 19 show, 10 PM, at recordbar.The crew includes some of Kansas City's most adept slingers of beats and rhymes.”

“This mix includes songs such as: Reach’s “Can Can”, Les Izmore’s “Lapse”, Dutch Newman’s “Do You Like Mine”, and MilkDrop’s “Dirty Laundry.” Look for more mixes to come, as The Soul Providers finish their debut album “The New Black” slated for a 2010 release.”

“The Soul Providers are finishing their debut album The New Black. In the mean time familiarize yourself with Reach, Les Izmore, Dutch Newman, and MilkDrop, all of whom have tracks on this 30 minute mix of Soul Providers material”

“In a fit of what could only be described as cartoonish inspiration, Soul Server and Losers' Clubber Deuce Fontane has taken the vocal off Milk Drop's "Dirty Ls" and laid it over the famous '80s bloop-reel "Axel F," with a bit of Family Guy mixed in at the end.”

“For fans of Common, Mos Def and Talib Kwali, Hidden Prescriptions will certainly cure what's ailing the contemporary hip-hop genre, with wildly creative lyrics and a mixtape-like assemblage of songs that maintain an ambient, otherworldly momentum.”

“This looks to be a very special hip-hop and hot wings. A regional artist is returning triumphant to Kansas City.”

“One of the more prolific local hip-hoppers in terms of discs dropped, Milk will have released two mixtapes (including Rise Before the Fall) and two full-lengths by the end of the year. He's celebrating the first of those LPs, Falling Back to Earth....”

“The Soul Providers crew drops mix tapes like Philly bakes Tastykakes, and the latest treat comes from recent Vegas transplant MilkDrop.”

“As a reminder that hip-hop can be as much an extension of Marvin Gaye and Billie Holiday as it is a cocksure, new-school stab at old-school suburban sensibility, Rise can be unexpectedly fresh. Milk dedicates most of the 11 tracks to mature, if recycled, topics.”

“This is the central message of the latest single from KC-by-way-of-Vegas rapper MilkDrop. "Dirty Laundry" finds Milk milking the production talents of fellow local D/Will. As MilkDrop lyrically laments a divisive Kansas City hip-hop scene, D/Will dishes up a heavy, funky, R&B-flavored beat.”
