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 young rising stars to a virtuoso with a uniquely well-rounded pedigree as a producer, rapper and performer.
Over the past 15 years, Black has amassed a dynamic portfolio. After scoring his first production credit for Slum Village as a teenager in 2002, he eventually worked closely with the group and co-produced much of their two following albums. His self-released, full-length project Sound of the City (2005) led to his first independent record deal and he began to gain international attention for the soul-sample-driven style on his proper solo debut Popular Demand (2007). Five solo rap albums (Tronic, Album of the Year, No Poison No Paradise, Glitches In The Break, If There's A Hell Below), an instrumental album (Synth or Soul), a live instrumental album (The Rebellion Sessions) with his touring band Nat Turner, numerous collaboration albums (including Black and Brown with Danny Brown), two singles with Jack White and numerous other productions (including Danny Brown’s “Really Doe” ft. Kendrick Lamar, Ab Soul and Earl Sweatshirt) later, Black Milk remains one of hip-hop's most consistent artists. Bringing his numerous recordings to life with live band Nat Turner, Black Milk has also been recognized as a genuine and poised performer, one of hip-hop and music's most acclaimed live acts.
