Black Milk is making beats again, this time steering the production helm for Slum Village memeber and Detroit colleague eLZhi‘s debut solo album.

The latter will drop The Preface August 12 through Fat beats, and since he’s a self-proclaimed perfectionist when it comes to making rhymes, he’s found a kindred spirit in Black Milk, whose signature beats have a certain meticulousness to them. Additionally, a whole gang of guest artists from Motor City came through for the album, including Royce Da 5’9″, T3 of Slum Village, Guilty Simpson, and Phat Kat.
