Black Milk

Born and raised in Detroit on the sounds of A Tribe Called Quest and De La Soul, Curtis Cross found out at an early age that he had a talent for hip-hop, especially for beats. He spent hours in his basement -- at first with just a cheap drum machine and a home karaoke system, eventually moving up to more sophisticated MPCs and samplers -- making tapes. One of these tapes got into the hands of fellow Detroiters Slum Village, who were impressed by what they heard and invited Cross to produce a track on their 2002 mixtape Dirty District, as well as on their official full-length Trinity (Past, Present and Future). After that, Cross, who was going as Black Milk, teamed up with producer RJ Rice, Jr. (or Young RJ) as the group B.R. Gunna, rhyming and making beats on the duo's 2004 release Dirty District, Vol. 2. That same year, Slum Village, who were looking for production work because usual beatmakers Waajeed and Kareem Riggins were busy with other projects, hired B.R. Gunna for 11 of the 13 tracks on their Detroit Deli LP.

In 2005, without a label and with his group on hiatus, Black Milk went on to release Sound of the City, which was more of a mixtape than a typical album, on his own Music House Records, and shortly thereafter worked on SV's self-titled record. By this time, indie rap label Fat Beats had heard Black Milk's work, which many compared to that of the late J Dilla and producer/MC Madlib; impressed, the label signed him in 2006 and issued his official solo debut, Popular Demand, in March of 2007. Late that same year, a joint Bishop Lamont/Black Milk tape, mixed by DJ Warrior, hit the streets, a slightly modified version of which was mastered and released commercially by Music House early in 2008, and just a few months later his collaboration with fellow Detroiter Fat Ray, The Set Up, came out. In October, he capped off the productive year with the release of his second official solo album, Tronic. He worked with a four-piece live band for 2010's Album of the Year, a heavily rock-influenced effort that featured guest artists Royce da 5'9" and eLZhi. His 2013 effort, No Poison No Paradise, returned to electronic and hip-hop sounds and featured the single "Sunday's Best." If There's a Hell Below followed in 2014, with Bun B and Pete Rock among its guests. ~ Marisa Brown, Rovi

One of the most underrated producer/mc from the Midwest and world. Tronic was that s**t, he changed up the style just a little but still kilt it.

People better recognize this man, because he is the present and future of hip hop. Collaboratin g with Sean P and Guilty only makes him better.

Black Milk is definitely one of my favorite new artists. He has a new solo CD coming out in 2010, and a collabo with a soul singer whose name I forget. Then he has Random Ax coming out as well, which is Black Milk/Guilty Simpson/Sean Price. Can't wait, keep an eye out for Black Milk in 2010/2011!

Black Milk is one of the best producers since the late great J-Dilla. He knows how to blind the perfect samples and music instruments together to make that wonderful head bop beat that us true Hip Hop fans have come to love over the years of constant listening.
