Just what the world needs, another white rapper. That's what many listeners will no doubt think when they hear Miilkbone's second album, U Got Miilk?. Despite the fact that Miilkbone's career predates Eminem and rap-rock acts like Kid Rock, Miilkbone can't help but be perceived as another Caucasian rapper trying to cash in on hip-hop's legions of angry white fans. Miilkbone knows comparisons to Eminem are inevitable, and he confronts Slim Shady head-on in the track "Dear Slim," a venomous diatribe against Eminem where he sounds a bit like the deranged fan in Eminem's hit "Stan." Instead of focusing on his rivalry with Eminem, Miilkbone should have spent more time focusing on the rest of the album. Although Miilkbone had some success in the early '90s, there's little in U Got Miilk? that demonstrates that he has evolved or matured as an artist.
