With more than a decade and a half of industry experience and a rich catalog of recordings, Black Milk has successfully transitioned from one of hip-hop's young sensations to a trusted virtuoso with a uniquely well-rounded pedigree as a producer, rapper, and performer.
Over the past 15 years, Black Milk has amassed a dynamic portfolio. After scoring his first credit for Slum Village as a teenager in 2002, he worked closely with the group and co-produced much of their next two albums. His self-released, full-length Sound of the City (2005) led to an independent deal, before international attention for the Soul-sample-driven style on his proper solo debut Popular Demand (2007). Five additional solo rap albums followed (Tronic, Album of the Year, No Poison No Paradise, Glitches in the Break, If There's A Hell Below, FEVER), as well as an instrumental LP (Synth or Soul), and a live effort (The Rebellion Sessions) with his touring band Nat Turner. The sprawling and versatile discography also features collaborative LPs (including Black and Brown with Danny Brown as well as Random Axe with Guilty Simpson and the late Sean Price), two singles with Jack White, plus production highlights involving Brown, Kendrick Lamar and Earl Sweatshirt (“Really Doe”), and recent songs for Mick Jenkins and Marlon Craft. Through it all, Black Milk is widely recognized as one of music's most acclaimed live acts as well as an elite artist who has always embraced creative evolution and change.
