Black Milk Finds & Loses Unrequited Love In “Story and Her” (Video)
Still promoting his 2014 album If There’s A Hell Below, Detroit producer and rapper Black Milk took a break from the second half of the North American leg of his Play Like Hell Tour to shoot a video for his latest single, “Story and Her.” The song tells the story of Boy can’t get Girl, Boy sees Girl years later, Boy gets Girl, and then….well, the night takes a wrong turn. Noted especially for its distinctive rhyme scheme and particularly velvety Jazz-infused production, the song is a stand-out from what many critics called his best album to date.
Preceded by the video for the album’s lead single, “What It’s Worth,” the new video is straightforward but leaves viewers with a foreboding sense of mystery. Check it out.
Featuring appearances from Blu, Bun B, Pete Rock, Random Axe, and more, the Computer Ugly release continues the trajectory set forth most prominently by 2013’s No Poison No Paradise, with Black Milk further exploring his lyrical skills while maintaining the high caliber production he’s been praised for for years.
