Black Milk is a producer and rapper born and raised in Detroit, Michigan. As one of the most-celebrated auteurs of his generation of hip hop artists, he has conditioned fans and critics to always expect the unexpected each time he releases new music. Few producers have earned the notoriety and respect he has as a musician, and when that is coupled with commanding talent as an emcee, it's no surprise that his solo releases are met with exalted anticipation.
He has been making music professionally since 2004 and has collaborated with many noted artists including Slum Village, J Dilla, Elzhi, Phat Kat, Frank-N-Dank, Lloyd Banks, Canibus, Pharoahe Monch, and Jack White of The White Stripes. In 2010 he released Album of the Year, which perfectly captured his soulful, jazzy style.
With his recently released No Poison No Paradise album being welcomed with critical acclaim, Black Milk has announced that he will extend his current tour to Europe. The legendary producer / emcee, along with with his four-piece band called Nat Turner, have almost completed their 28-date US tour, having made notable stops in Los Angeles, New York, and Detroit, Black Milk's hometown. The 13-city European leg of the tour will kick off in Rotterdam, Netherlands on November 15 with Black making his final stop in Berlin, Germany on November 30. Most notably the London gig is at the Scala on 23rd November.
Black Milk's No Poison No Paradise Tour began in Dallas and was welcomed with a rave review from The Dallas Observer, who stated, "Somehow in a genre of big talking, falsely inflated egos, stands the underwhelming persona, but overwhelming talent of Black Milk. This is an artist who clearly does not require the crutches of glitzy stage-sets and cinematic projections to impart his effortless magnetism".
