Listen to Black Milk's "Album of the Year"

Damn, first
Harvey Milk, then Thou, and now Black Milk? I always knew NPR was the shit but they've been killing it lately! You can now stream Black Milk's upcoming album "Album of the Year" in it's entirety on NPR's website, no snippets here! Here's an excerpt of what they had to say about the album and you can still get some free Black Milk tracks here (thanks to Vish for the heads up.)

"At first glance, the title of Black Milk's Album of the Year is a bit off-putting. Is this another self-aggrandizing hip-hop star claiming rap supremacy? The answer is no, as Black Milk (a.k.a. Curtis Cross) explains on the intro to "365." The new album is a reflection of the 365 days between the release of his last album (Tronic) and the day he handed in his new one. Cross' lyrics describe a year filled with success, temptation, loss, doubt and recovery; themes and emotions dispensed with both vulnerability and assurance. With syncopated internal rhyme schemes and some of the rapper's best wordplay to date, he doesn't sound cocky — just confident."
