Black Milk is one of Detroit’s most talented and prolific artists, but he keeps a pretty tight lid on his works. The self-produced “Dismal” is the latest song to slip out from the vault. Rapping over an eerie, sparse instrumental that sounds like it samples the ambient noises of a space swamp, Black Milk both harshly chastises himself for falling from grace and argues for his inevitable rise to power, using the instrumental to crawl through the muck that he has created.
It’s unclear how “Dismal” reflects the soundscape of Black Milk’s upcoming album No Poison No Paradise, but the album’s artwork (pictured above) suggests that it might be a reliable harbinger of the album as whole. Only time will tell. Until then all we can do is anticipate and press repeat.
No Poison No Paradise will be released on October 15. View the tracklist here.
