Detroit's Curtis Cross, AKA Black Milk, boats one hell of a back catalogue.
Having shared his undeniable talent with the likes of J Dilla, Pharoahe Monch, Lloyd Banks and Slum Village to name just a few, Black Milk has a firm standing within hip-hops elite.
Bold, knocking beats, clattering drum machines, techno pulses and expert musicality sit underneath Cross' brilliantly conscious lyricism. Here's quite obviously a master of the craft.
On July 11th he headlines Start The Bus in Bristol for a one-off you'd be absolutely mad to miss.
Presented by No Need To Shout.
