Even though he had plenty of fans prior to his 2008 release, Tronic, rapper-producer Black Milk gained a load of new listeners thanks to that album’s ridiculous beats and tight raps. As such, you can’t blame them (myself included) for salivating over the prospect of hearing new music from his forthcoming Album of the Year.
And the above video represents the first true promotional push behind the record, though a previous leak, “Welcome (Gotta Go),” has been available for a month. While that track focused solely on Black Milk and his always great-sounding drums, “Deadly Medley” is more about the rhymes than the beat as it features top-level lyricists eLZhi and Royce Da 5’9″. The three Detroit natives go in hard on this cut, but who do you think has the best verse? I’m leaning toward eLZhi.
