Tronic is shaping up to be the sonic equivalent to what Tron was to video game nerds in the early 80’s. On The Matrix, the second Booth-featured cut off the new album due out in stores on October 28, Black Milk morphs into Neo (‘The One,’ not the R&B singer). With verses from Pharoahe Monch and Sean Price, and cuts from the legendary DJ Premier, this record provides silver-screen music for all to enjoy. Price goes in as “Clark Kent without the glasses on,” showing why he’s the hood’s favorite superstar, and an equally impressive Pharoahe Monch complements the Detroit MC/producer by expounding on the ins and outs of The Matrix. In the wake of Dirty D’s lost solider, J. Dilla, Milk continues to impress.
