Producer/Emcee Black Milk rose to prominence both locally in his native Detroit and on a national level through his associations with Slum Village. After getting his first production credit for “What is This” on SV’s sophomore album “Trinity” in 2002, he produced much of the popular group’s next two albums. His first taste of notoriety as am emcee came with the self-released debut solo album “Sound of the City” in 2005 — landing him his first record deal with Fat Beats Records in 2006. Upon the release of his “Popular Demand” album in March 2007, Black Milk instantly became one of underground hip hop’s ambassadors. In addition to becoming a go-to producer for commissioned beats on an independent level (he's placed beats on projects by Kidz in the Hall, Guilty Simpson, Strange Fruit Project, Genius/GZA, and many more), he’s also worked with major label artists like Pharoahe Monch, Kardinal Offishall, and Busta Rhymes. He's also recently released two albums on his own Music House imprint (Fat Ray’s “The Set Up” and “Black Milk presents Caltroit”), produced nearly an entire album for Elzhi from Slum Village (“The Preface”), and produces and rhymes as a member of the group Random Axe (with Sean Price and Guilty Simpson) who have a full length album scheduled for release in early 2009.
