Man, it’s been a minute since we’ve seen or heard from Black Milk. Detroit’s producer extraordinaire seems to be enjoying some time away from the road, but now that we’ve officially crossed into the new year, Milk seems poised to usher in a new era for his sound, building off years of refinement and evolution as both a producer and emcee (and perhaps one of the best one-two punches in the game.)
Today, perhaps as a sonic testament to that virtue, BM has unleashed the track “Like I Need It All,” marking a transition for the Motor City do-it-all, expanding into more trap-ish drum programs, yet maintaining his hold of a slightly electric, wholly dope sound that has become his and his alone. The rhymes are reflective and also point towards a refocused and revitalized Milk for the next solar cycle. Dive into a cold new cut from Black Milk below and hold tight for the next transmission. If you’re looking for a live and direct fix while the man enjoys a brief moment of leisure, jump back and peep his in-studio performance of If There’s A Hell Below album cuts. Take the new joint home with you via Bandcamp.
