Black Milk virtuosically pushes the boundaries of hip-hop without losing sight of its rich tradition. Returning to the fold with a forward-looking artistic statement, Milk announces DiVE, his upcoming EP. Continuing the sonic experimentation and politically-charged atmosphere of his 2018 album FEVER, DiVE finds Black with an eye on the future, contemplating the next decade with equal parts hope and trepidation.
Spanning 11-tracks, the EP flows from front-to-back with seamless transitions, mimicking the free-wheeling creativity of the album’s author. With vocal contributions from BJ The Chicago Kid, Detroit artist Sam Austins, and Black Milk’s younger brother MAHD, DiVE arrives on August 2nd.
To accompany the announcement of the EP, Black Milk shares “If U Say ft. BJ The Chicago Kid,” the project’s lead single. A lush, R&B-flavored track with stuttering breakbeats, “If U Say” ft. BJ The Chicago Kid finds Black Milk and BJ attempting to reconcile their past, present, and future selves, in the context of a rapidly changing, nearly unrecognizable Midwest.
