Last year was the year for heavy weight collaborations between some of the biggest names in the US charts. What better way to start 2012 then another meeting of two talented rappers. Detroit representing Black milk & Danny Brown connect to bring us The Black and Brown EP.
Ill get my only dig out at the start this album is SHORT, has one of those “I found a bunch of tracks on my computer I never got round to using” Vibes…But Stone me dead, its pure class A and I am sure a lot of people would give vital organs to be able to channel so much richness, attitude and natural ability with the magnitude this album offers.
Each track hits with a quick succession of jab like samples, catchy hooks erratic scratches and a knockout drum kick, Black milk doesn’t delay in throwing the production straight into the deep end, which is fitting for the style both rappers personify, Danny Brown, who takes nearly all lead vocal in the album, chosen delivery is an onslaught of intrusive and aggressive lyricism spewed through a shout strained vocal box…its precisely Detroit Rap…. Check “Sound check” for a two minute no Hook massacre. The track that had me hitting Repeat was the joint the duo dropped in 2010 as a pre warm up to the Ep “Black and Brown”(linked below) on which Black Milk obliterates and I mean it…Not only did the production have me bopping my head more often then the Churchill dog…. He unleashes a whirlwind of destructive wordplays its DOPE!! I’m not massive on US releases but this had my attention for a lengthy period.
Its definitely worth picking up to check out the short but well put together productions, and the Detroit deliverance.
