plus Spin Doctor @ JAZZ CAFÉ
TUESDAY OCTOBER 26TH (Doors 7pm)
In only a few years, producer/emcee Black Milk has quickly developed into one of the few hip hop artists who both carries an accomplished resume and is followed with widely-held optimism about what he can bring as one of the leaders of the modern hip hop movement.
Now 25 years old, Black (born Curtis Cross) earned his stripes both locally in his native Detroit and on a national level from his associations with Slum Village. It wasn’t until his self-released debut solo album “Sound of the City” in 2005 did he begin to achieve some notoriety as an emcee, and it was off the strength of the album that he signed 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.
With his new confidently titled “Album Of The Year” he continues with his incredible rise to the top of the Hip-Hop game with a combination of phenomenal beats matched not only by his own skills on the mic but guest appearances from Detroit’s own Royce Da 5’9″& Elzhi. Tonight he will be appearing live on stage with his live band to show that it is not only on wax that Black Milk presents the future of Hip-Hop.
Supporting with what is sure to be a Detroit heavy DJ set is London’s finest DJ / Promoter, The Doctor’s Orders own Spin Doctor. Making sure the night is nicely warmed up and that punters are sent home smiling he will be bringing his own flavour of classic and brand new Hip-Hop as only he can.
