The other day, my homegirl Buscuit updated her Facebook status to say that she was going to watch some Detroit MCs get their hip-hop performance on. I queried if the act was producer/rapper Black Milk and she said no, but that brief exchange got me to thinking about the quality music that’s been coming from Motor City the past few years. By far, Black Milk has been the most talented to emerge on the scene.
I’m not going to give you a bio on Milk — you can find all of that on his MySpace or Wikipedia. I will say that his first album, Popular Demand, was bumpin’, and his newest release, Tronic, is defintiely one of the year’s highlights in a genre that’s been overrun with uncharismatic hipster rappers with no swag. Peep the video for the fantastic “Give The Drummer Some” after the jump.
