With more than a decade and a half of industry experience and a rich catalog of recordings, Black Milk has transitioned from one of hip-hop’s rising stars to a genre-bending virtuoso with a well-rounded pedigree as a producer, rapper and performer. Acclaimed by outlets such as Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, and The Wall Street Journal, the Detroit-born artist has released seven solo rap albums, a handful of EPs and instrumental projects, and has collaborated with numerous artists, including Jack White, Danny Brown (most recently producing Danny Brown’s “Really Doe” ft. Kendrick Lamar, Earl Sweatshirt and Ab-Soul), Slum Village and many more. Returning to the scene amidst a turbulent political climate, Black Milk’s latest album, FEVER, is a socially aware body of work with a multi-genre soundscape, building on his style of fusing electronic programming with samples and live music. FEVER is out now via Mass Appeal Records and Black Milk’s label Computer Ugly.
The first thing we’ve heard from the new album is “Laugh Now Cry Later,” on which we hear Black Milk’s pointed, unpretentious flow over a beat that’s full of electronic gasps and live-bass burbles. Seriously: The beat here is incredible. – Stereogum
Cross has no need for these extras; in his world of soul-tugging productions and machinegun-as-velvet delivery they are merely distractions. On this realization, and in the moment, it was hard not be floored by the obvious: this is what talent with genuine poise really looks and sounds like. – Dallas Observer
