Black Milk doin his own thing and still reppin detroit
Props to Black Milk for makin' dope music, reppin' for Detroit and still doin' his own sound without jumpin' onto the bandwagon of J Dilla sound-a-likes. I originally heard of him as one half of the group BR Gunna. He released "Dirty District, Vol. 2" on Barak Records in the summer of '04. He signed to Fat Beats Records after laying beats for Pharoahe Monch, Slum Village, Proof, J. Dilla, and others. Black Milk is already one of the hottest young producers in hip hop. What folks may not know is that he is equally capable of ripping a mic, as heard on his '07 album "Popular Demand," and his "Broken Wax" EP, featuring guest appearances from Guilty Simpson, Slum Village, Phat Kat, and more. The future of Detroit hip hop starts now.
Go out and get his album and get exposed to the new Detroit sound.
