Black Milk, ‘Tronic’ (Fat Beats)

By: Mosi Reeves // December 18, 2008

Tronic is an artistic breakthrough for Detroit producer/rapper Black Milk, a Slum Village associate who has toiled in the industry for years (which he explains on the triumphant chipmunk-soul anthem “Long Story Short”). The title tips off the rough electronic tint of his third album, but this ain’t no retro-electro party: Milk bangs out hard synth tracks with malevolent fire, “murdering the booth” on cuts such as “The Matrix” and “Overdose.” Pharoahe Monch, Sean Price, Royce Da 5’9,” and other MCs show up to anoint the new prince of hardcore hip-hop.
