On the Latest Video from His Recent DiVE EP, Black Milk Recruits MAHD To Exchange Relatable Life Lessons With His Real Life Relative
Marrying his incendiary genre-blend with a plainspoken lyrical wisdom, Black Milk searches for universal meaning through music. For “Relate (Want 2 Know),” his new video and the first from his recently released DiVE EP, Black Milk keeps it in the family–everybody in the video is related to Black, including guest rapper MAHD, Black’s brother. The clip kicks off with two of the rapper’s cousins expressing admiration for their barbers, and appreciation for the life lessons they import. In the main section of the video, Black Milk sits in a barber’s chair, as his brother MAHD cuts his hair, and the two relatives exchange relatable rhymes atop Black’s soulful instrumental.
Diving into the future with a renewed perspective on the world and his place in it, Black Milk recently shared DiVE, a soulful new EP. The follow-up to Black’s ambitious 2018 album FEVER, DiVE is an elaboration on the moments of change for Black Milk – changing the way he sees (or chooses not to see) the world, his creative identity, his place in the rap sphere, and the shedding old ways. Spanning 11-tracks, the EP flows from front-to-back with seamless transitions, mimicking the free-wheeling creativity of the album’s author. Recruiting a group of ace session musicians from his hometown, Black Milk fine-tunes his incendiary genre-blend, which can switch from hard-charging to smooth to ethereal at the drop of a hat. The new EP features two previously released singles: the soulful and nostalgic “If U Say ft. BJ The Chicago Kid” and the aspirational “Black NASA,” which features vocals from Detroit artist Sam Austins. DiVE is available to stream everywhere via Mass Appeal Records/Computer Ugly.
“Relate (Want 2 Know)” arrives just as Black Milk finishes a European string of tour dates, including performances in the UK, Germany, and Switzerland, before heading back to the U.S. for dates at Brooklyn’s Baby’s All Right (September 10th) and Detroit’s El Club (September 12th).
