Description:

Seagram Miller (1969–July 31, 1996) was a hardcore gangsta rapper from East Oakland, California. Miller released three albums in his lifetime: The hard-edged and violent The Dark Roads and the more typically laid-back west coast style Reality Check. 1997's Souls On Ice was released posthumously after Miller's death. Miller was shot to death on July 31, 1996. He is interred in the Oakland Bay Area.

The Dark Roads is the debut album by Seagram, released January 19, 1993 on Rap-A-Lot Records and Priority Records. The album features guest performances by labelmates: Scarface, Ganksta N-I-P, Bushwick Bill and Willie D. It peaked at number 74 on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums. Along with a single, a music video was produced for the song, "The Vill".

The album features the violent but intelligent single "The Ville" in which Seagram raps about the hard lifestyle of Oakland G's. The album also showcases the song "Straight Mobbin" featuring Gangsta P which was a groundbreaking song for the izzle slang. Seagram and Gangsta P are two of the first known rappers to have recorded an entire song using only izz and izzle words. Rappers such as Snoop Dogg would later use this style into the new millennium. The album is out of print.
