It’s been four years since Black Milk released a solo album, but all that ends when the Detroit native comes through with FEVER on February.
Announced at the top of the year, Milk touched on cultural appropriation and police brutality with the album’s first single, “Laugh Now, Cry Later.” And now, the producer-on-the-mic keeps it coming with the equally fresh second single, “True Lies.”
“On the song, I talk about how traditions and institutions are used to keep people from questioning the world around them and from demanding more for themselves,” Black Milk says. “When I made the track, I envisioned a world full of zombies being told what to believe. Only a few come to realize most of what they’ve been taught about and within the institutions around them are lies to impede both personal and collective progress.”
Check it out below and be sure to pick up FEVER on February 23rd.
