dope

K-izzle,

Black Milk is one of the best producer/rappers out there. All his albums are a must buy. And Bun B sounds dope on that beat

Possible New "Glitches"

Po'sNoodles,

First of all BunB is deff back. 2nd JayDee has truly incarnated into BlackMilk & 3 with his (BM) creativity, it is easier (record by record) to understand and hear as to why BM doesn't need to work with top musical stars to become successful. But clearer then ever, BM's striving to get those lost sheep back into his circle but staying true to that Detriot sound, not to sellout to give in to working with others to make it to where he needs to be. He's chilling but hungry for that love that was once their from his fans, continuing to talk about his life following up NoParadise. Just loving this new record. 5Stars without a doubt an instant vinyl purchase.

About Black Milk

Born and raised in Detroit on the sounds of A Tribe Called Quest and De La Soul, Curtis Cross found out at an early age that he had a talent for hip-hop, especially for beats. He spent hours in his basement -- at first with just a cheap drum machine and a home karaoke system, eventually moving up to more sophisticated MPCs and samplers -- making tapes. One of these tapes got into the hands of fellow Detroiters Slum Village, who were impressed by what they heard and invited Cross to produce a track on their 2002 mixtape Dirty District, as well as on their official full-length Trinity (Past, Present and Future). After that, Cross, who was going as Black Milk, teamed up with producer RJ Rice, Jr. (or Young RJ) as the group B.R. Gunna, rhyming and making beats on the duo's 2004 release Dirty District, Vol. 2. That same year, Slum Village, who were looking for production work because usual beatmakers Waajeed and Kareem Riggins were busy with other projects, hired B.R. Gunna for 11 of the 13 tracks on their Detroit Deli LP.

In 2005, without a label and with his group on hiatus, Black Milk went on to release Sound of the City, which was more of a mixtape than a typical album, on his own Music House Records, and shortly thereafter worked on SV's self-titled record. By this time, indie rap label Fat Beats had heard Black Milk's work, which many compared to that of the late J Dilla and producer/MC Madlib; impressed, the label signed him in 2006 and issued his official solo debut, Popular Demand, in March of 2007. Late that same year, a joint Bishop Lamont/Black Milk tape, mixed by DJ Warrior, hit the streets, a slightly modified version of which was mastered and released commercially by Music House early in 2008, and just a few months later his collaboration with fellow Detroiter Fat Ray, The Set Up, came out. In October, he capped off the productive year with the release of his second official solo album, Tronic.

He worked with a four-piece live band for 2010's Album of the Year, a heavily rock-influenced effort that featured guest artists Royce da 5'9" and eLZhi. His 2013 effort, No Poison No Paradise, returned to electronic and hip-hop sounds and featured the single "Sunday's Best." If There's a Hell Below followed in 2014, with Bun B and Pete Rock among its guests. Two years later he released the all-instrumental album The Rebellion Sessions. The LP was a collaborative effort with his backing band, now billed as Nat Turner, named after a U.S. slave rebellion leader. ~ Marisa Brown
