Critical Praise for Black Milk:

“Black Milk’s solo career represents a constant cycle of adopting and mastering new production styles and then abandoning them before they become crutches.” – Pitchfork 

“As many of his peers were flooding the market with instantly forgettable throwaways, Black Milk was toiling on his masterpiece.” – Washington Post

“His samples are elegant, his rhythms challenging and his drum kits tight.” – NPR

 The Tour:

Producer and rapper Black Milk has announced his upcoming 22-city No Poison No Paradise Tour, set to begin September 20th in Dallas, Texas. Joining the tour is live band Nat Turner (Aaron “Ab” Abernathy on keys and vocals, Malik Hunter on bass, and Z Horton on drums, with Bill Sharp as DJ ), as well as guests Quelle and DJ Sober. Black Milk will perform music from his new album, No Poison No Paradise, which is due out October 15th via Fat Beats/Computer Ugly. “I’m looking forward to hitting the road again with a new album on the way and new music to perform,” says Black Milk, “Nat Turner and I have great chemistry together, and we push the show to new heights every year. This run will be the best yet.”

Black Milk previously released the first single, “Perfected On Puritan Ave,” introducing listeners to some of the themes from the upcoming album, which is structured conceptually as a series of dreams in the mind of a fictional character named Sonny Jr. The album art and tour flyer depict some of the imagery from Black Milk’s lyrical content, and were created by Dallas, Texas artist Joonbug.

Black Milk Background:

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 and Pharoahe Monch and Jack White of The White Stripes. In 2010 he released Album of the Year, which perfectly captured his soulful, jazzy style. He is currently putting the finishing touches on his new album, No Poison No Paradise, which is due out October 15th of this year.
