Detroit may be in its darkest hour, but the music is thriving. Big Sean just dropped one of the year’s most important cuts (even though he had nothing to do with its importance), Danny Brown is looking to rev up Old any day now, and the city’s most talented producer/rapper since Dilla is gearing up his next release. Black Milk, who has gone from talented yet unremarkable to stunning yet under-realized, has just released “Perfected On Puritan Ave,” an ode to his rough upbringing. Black‘s writing has improved, having grown a more tangible personality and greater observational skills. “Puritan Ave, looking over your shoulder / Don’t realize you’re from a ghetto ’til you get a little older,” he raps calmly, but with some strain. Listen all the way through to hear the jazz breakdown–it’s like a ten-car pileup. Stay posted on No Poison No Paradise, because from here, it’s looking pretty damn good.
