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. “For 4Ever” kind of changes that.

The record looks at career pressures versus relationship demands. As it often goes, that conflict leads to a couple’s demise. Although the music is all Black’s own (which he’s been adamantly doing for the past decade), he brings in some accents to his vocals that will remind some of Drake’s style. Elsewhere, the short bars and conversational style brings Kanye West to mind. The second song of January 2016 from B. Milk shows that he’s growing and evolving quite a bit.
