Black Milk Staff Pick

When: Thu., Sept. 12, 7 p.m. 2019
Price: $20-$25
From working with Slum Village to collaborating with Jack White and Danny Brown, Detroit native and J. Dilla disciple Black Milk, née Curtis Eugene Cross, is kind of a big deal. Last month, Black Milk followed 2018’s Fever with DiVE EP, which finds the 36-year-old rapper tackling betrayal, forgiveness and rising above the circumstance, and inviting collabs with MAHD, Motown Records’ BJ the Chicago Kid, and Pusha-T mentee Sam Austins. “They’d rather have us locked down in a pair of cuffs/ Unfair fair enough/ I wonder why you never see no peace/ Why my outfit’s not low-key/ Treat foreign whips like trophies/ Belong in this world/ But we have to make our own in this world,” Black Milk says on “Black NASA” alongside Austins — a song that embodies the ethos of the record: don’t just shoot for the stars; be the star.
