Over the past 15 years, Black Milk 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 and Random Axe with Guilty Simpson and the late Sean Price), two singles with Jack White and numerous other productions (such as 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.
