Damn near everyone from the D is on this one!
16 minutes of tight rhymes from some names you know and names you don’t. Given the strength of this production, I’m game for all of it as Trick Trick and Dej Loaf put down their own verses and the rest of the list features: Guilty Simpson, Black Milk, Sino, Marv Won, Payroll, Hydro, Big Gov, Boldy James, Kid Vishis, Big Herk, Icewear Vezzo, Detroit Che, Calicoe, and Diezel. Eminem just released it himself.
No Obie though? He had to put out his own remix? *shrugs*
Detroit’s Black Milk is also dropping a new album today — his 5th, in fact. If There’s A Hell Below boasts features from Pete Rock, Bun B, Blu, and more. For a quick preview too, check out the new video to “What It’s Worth”.

Black Milk reeled me in for this collab off the upcoming Converse ‘Cons Vol. 2′ EP with an artist called BADBADNOTGOOD — haha, what a group name. But name aside, this track between the Detroit emcee and the Toronto collective is pretty cool, especially that second verse so look out for that.
An interesting new sound from Black Milk as he premieres “Detroit’s New Dance Show”, inspired by EDM pioneers Kraftwerk and Juan Atkins. It’s a little too slow for me, but Black Milk delivers it really well. Just an odd mix that works overall.
New music from the Detroit lyricist — available for free stream the day before its release tomorrow. It’s called Glitches In The Break and features 9 tracks with a couple features from fellow Detroit-ers Guilty Simpson & Fat Ray. Black Milk also produced the entire project himself and will make a vinyl edition available on National Record Store Day, April 19th.
