The 14 Best Hip-Hop Releases So Far In 2018 (Audio & Video)

Approaching 2018’s midpoint, the year has been absolutely incredible for Hip-Hop and Rap music. For many artists, the album is now shorter than it has ever been. Releases are more concentrated and digestible than they have been been in decades. Moreover, the MC/producer double-threat is winning, as is the chemistry... Read more

It’s Hard To Make A Good Hip-Hop Love Song. Black Milk Makes A Great One (Audio)

Black Milk's biggest songs have dealt with church, Detroit Hip-Hop, and looming apocalypse. The veteran producer/MC is not often thought of for his tracks about intimate relationships.

This medium allows producers in particular to sequence their own productions and projects into a concert,... Read more

During East Coast Ice Storms, Black Milk Makes A Cold Day (Audio)

Black Milk has this uncanny ability to take a '70s Children's song chorus vibe and make it so Hip-Hop that it hurts. After 2013's shiver-inducing "Sunday's Best" / "Monday's Worst" tandem about G vs. E, B.M. returns with "Cold Day." Hard beats and a very juxtaposed Saturday morning television feel... Read more

Black Milk Previews Black Sabbath Verse (Video)

Duck Down Music unveils their (cool) "Verse Unheard" concept, with label artists and affiliates showing fans acapella verses from upcoming projects.
