Jay-Z may have spit the line, but on Give the Drummer Sum it’s Black Milk who laces his own beat with some hip-hop soul we haven’t heard in quite a while. With some quick organ stabs, a mean drum kick, and a subtle bass guitar lick, the Detroit producer/rapper concocts a lead single that proves it “don’t make no sense” how he’s has been ignored by the mainstream for so long. As he gears up to release his new album, Tronic, due out in stores on October 28, Milk hopefully has enough in him to give the game a swift kick in the gonads. With featured appearances from Pharaohe Monch, DJ Premier, Sean Price, Royce Da 5’9”, Dwele and more, you shouldn’t expect anything but flawlessness from one of the Dirty D’s best and brightest talents.
