Black Milk - Give The Drummer Sum CD [Fat Beats]Black Milk gives listeners the first taste of his highly anticipated new album Tronic with the lead single "Give the Drummer Sum". The track shows the Detroit phenom adding a new edge to his production. Black's ever-improving mic skills have a touch of the Hova's flow as he rides over live horns and hard drums on what's sure to be one of the most original and exciting hip hop singles of the year.

This is a large production with Kanye-esque wall of sound samples in the chorus and in the outro along a great bass line with some jazzy trumpet, but mostly this is all about the funk beat and the organ stab. Black Milk flows nicely over this original beat. There is a boyish sounding youth doing the intro and chorus and this is the only element which doesn't do it for me in what is otherwise an outstanding track.

In only a few short years, Black Milk quickly has become one of underground hip-hop's foremost ambassadors. Realising his vast reservoir of talent, both independent and mainstream artists looked to Black to give their albums a raw underground sound. Black has since produced and appeared on tracks for an impressive roster of hip hop artists including Genius / GZA, Busta Rhymes, Pharoahe Monch, Kidz in the Hall, Kardinal Offishall, Guilty Simpson, and Strange Fruit Project, among others.

Most recently, Black released two albums, The Set Up with Fat Ray and Black Milk Presents Caltroit with Bishop Lamont. Black also handed nearly all the production on elZhi's The Preface, an album that is making many critics' Top 10 lists for 2008 and bringing serious attention to Detroit's music scene. Black also produces and rhymes as a member of the ground Random Axe with Sean Price and Guilty Simpson and will release a full-length album in early 2009. Tronic will be released on CD, vinyl, and digitally via Fat Beats Records on October 28th 2008.
