I featured Benjamin Miles a couple of years when he and his compadres dropped an album called Bottles & Bones under the group name Of Mice and Musicians.  I love that album and to this day I play it occasionally (even though I always have a ton of music to listen to).  Now he’s back with a new album entitled, The Wishing Tree.  Miles’ is really a peoples’ emcee.  He focuses on real world issues and problems and doesn’t get caught in the phony bravado that prevails in hip hop these days.   I chose to feature Wolves & Sheep because that’s a track the relates to us all.  We all have to keep a close eye on those around us and sometimes we have to guess if they are are there to help or harm.   It doesn’t hurt that the production is top notch.
