Black Milk, Nat Turner Band
4811 SE Hawthorne Blvd.
[JAZZ RAP] Black Milk’s music is nostalgia with a beat. While the hip-hop mainstream swarms with trap rap and Yeezus-inspired machine-hop, the Motor City MC has stayed closer to the jazzy sounds of his heroes J Dilla and Pete Rock. He’s far from just a throwback, though. The most recent Black Milk release, the self-produced EP Glitches in the Break, crackles with dark energy. The MC’s laid-back flow is just one draw in a labyrinth of vinyl pops, ghostly soul samples and tight boom-bap beats. Just prepare for the occasional minute-long big band interlude.
