Audio: Black Milk "Brain" (prod. Jack White)
We been hearing rumors about this Black Milk and Jack White collaboration for a minute and a half. But now the meeting of the minds ((half the excitement was speculating what the release would be called: White Milk? No…Jack Black? Wait…) finally becomes a reality as Jack, um, Mr. White’s Third Man Records imprint releases Black Milk’s new 7″ single today! And yall’s truly got the rights to stream the A-side “Brain”–featuring White on guitar, as well as co-production credit–for your listening pleasure (you’ll just have to take our word that the dirty b-side “Royal Mega” is wild tough, also). This is the first rap project of any kind to come out on Third Man and the high-contrast duo apparently also put down a sick show at the label’s studios in Nashville (recorded for posterity and maybe seeing its own release in the near future?) which has only added to the legendary buzz. What more can we say except: Detroit, stand up.
