Detroit rapper/producer Black Milk just announced his live instrumental album The Rebellion Sessions will be released in April. The MC will be joined by his band Nat Turner for the Jazzy live album, which was recorded in just one week in Dallas.
Along with the announcement, the rapper also released a new track titled “The Rebel.”
He tells FADER:
“This project came together from Nat Turner and I deciding to meet up, lock ourselves in a room for one week, and hope that some musical gems could be created in that short amount of time. For most of the tracks on the album there are only three instruments being played—Z on drums, Malik Hunter on bass and Ab (Aaron Abernathy) on Fender Rhodes. I knew the less we had to work with the more creative we would have to be. I also kept it stripped down so that when we played live shows, the songs sound exactly how they do on the album. Most of the album is a fusion of jazz and funk orchestrated from a hip-hop producer’s standpoint.”
