Random Axe Reunite on Black Milk’s ‘Scum’
The group unleashes the vicious rhymes fans have come to expect on a diverse beat crafted by Black Milk. The song starts off with a slow-burning instrumental, which provides the background to Black Milk's rhymes on the harsh realities of growing up in Detroit.
"Random, random, push till they fall back / Grabbing a ball bat while I'm grabbing the hard hat / Hard act to follow, we the hard pill to swallow / You cotton that sit in the aspirin bottle / Random Axe smash the throttle / Grew up where it's ice cold / Where n----s gamble with their life like dice roll / This ain't a light show, but you see them red and blues flashing on the screen, channel seven news / Where those little dudes reach for rugers / Never surf the Internet, never own computers / You know the name, don't know the face, then he the mover / Whoever's the quietest in the room, then he the shooter," Black Milk raps.
The beat then switches up to a more traditional boom bap style as Sean Price comes in with his rugged bars. Black Milk flips the script yet again as the production evolves into a more futuristic sound reminiscent of his work on 2008's 'Tronic.' This portion serves as the playground for Guilty Simpson as he declares, "Once again, it's Mr. I am not your friend."
The song is truly a testament to Black Milk's work ethic and creativity as he easily could've turned this into three standalone tracks, but instead crafted one truly unique record.
Black Milk's 'If There's A Hell Below' is scheduled to drop on Oct. 28, and is available for pre-order now on his official Bandcamp page.
