As one of the most prodigious and versatile talents in the world of hip-hop, Black Milk has conditioned fans and critics to expect the unexpected with each release. This time, he returns to Buffalo, NY, bringing with him his live band, Nat Turner, for a electrifying and soul-wrenching night of hip hop at one of the city's best and most heralded music venues, Buffalo Iron Works. For this upscale hip hop event on Father's Day weekend, presale tickets are only $10, and entry at the door the night of the event, $15. Keeping with the theme, openers will consist of the finest live hip hop Buffalo has to offer, beginning with ReBOP, a 90s and early 2000s Hip Hop Cover Band, and secondly, transitioning into Buffalo's own, Chuckie Campbell & The Phaction, with a jazzy and ecletic, but powerful modern hip hop sound, equipped with its own horn section.
Black Milk's first offering of 2016 is a live instrumental LP, The Rebellion Sessions, created in conjunction with the band Nat Turner (Aaron “Ab” Abernathy on keys, Malik Hunter on bass, and Zebulun “Z” Horton on drums). The album, released on April 4th, is a product of a week-long jam session that was orchestrated, recorded, mixed and mastered by Black Milk in December of 2015.
Although the guys have appeared on Black’s previous works, The Rebellion Sessions is the first project created amongst the four as a collaborative unit. The album builds off Black Milk and Nat Turner’s incredible live show, honed over the course of years and more than 90 shows played worldwide in 2015 alone. Their 2016 Rebellion Tour will hit Europe, the US and Canada beginning this May and land in Buffalo Iron Works 6/19 for a dynamic and heartfelt performance on Father's Day Weekend.
Critical Praise for Black Milk
“Black Milk’s solo career represents a constant cycle of adopting and mastering new production styles and then abandoning them before they become crutches.” – Pitchfork
“His samples are elegant, his rhythms challenging and his drum kits tight.” – NPR
“Cross has no need for these extras; in his world of soul-tugging productions and machinegun-as-velvet delivery they are merely distractions. On this realization, and in the moment, it was hard not be floored by the obvious: this is what talent with genuine poise really looks and sounds like.” – Dallas Observer
“Striking an impressive balance between being rehearsed and spontaneous, he proved his chops as a multitalented artist once again.” – Okayplayer
“It feels like Christmas every time Black Milk blesses us with a new record.” – FreeOnSmash
