Detroit’s Black Milk has a new album coming out in July, and though “Don Cornelius” didn’t quite make the cut for the full-length, its sunny beats recall Dilla, and Black Milk’s wordplay is as furious as ever. Though the content is the usual “big-ups-to-me” lyric we’ve all gotten used to, how can one deny lines like “He was the game like a relay/but still not a game like E.A./I’m on the right path like slow lanes on the freeway“? Fans will definitely get down with Black Milk’s command to “keep your lighters up!”
