Considering everyone’s riding his dick like his nuts have handle bars it’s a controversial point of view; but I think new Detroit poster boy Black Milk is overrated. Some of his stuff is nice - his early dalliances with Slum Village turned up a few gems as did his debut Sound of the City and the Broken Wax EP, particularly the heavy cut Danger. But his feverishly feted sophomore LP left me a bit cold. Maybe I’m just a fussy bastard but I don’t see what all the fanfare is about.
Producer, MC, and vanguard of Detroit's rising hip-hop scene, Black Milk will embark on a mini-tour of Europe featuring fellow heavy hitters Guilty Simpson and Bishop Lamont and special guests eLZhi and Sean Price on additional U.S. dates. The "Caltroit" Tour will consist of eight dates in major European cities including Amsterdam, Paris and Zurich.
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.
