Black Milk Teams With Jack White for New Single
Hip-hop producer and MC Black Milk is linking with fellow Detroit native and former White Stripes frontman Jack White for his new single.
According to Pitchfork.com, Milk, who performed at White’s Third Man Records last week (April 8), is set to jump in the studio with him next month to record a single. White will co-produce the track.
This will mark the first hip-hop release for the label, but not the first time that White has collaborated with a rapper. In a previous interview, the 35-year-old revealed a collaboration with Jay-Z, singing the praises of the hip-hop entrepreneur. “He’s brilliant — there’s just no doubt about it. He’s the best thing going in hip-hop and has been for years,” White told BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe.
Despite announcing the break-up of the White Stripes in February, White’s label will also re-release the band’s first two singles: ‘Let’s Shake Hands’ and ‘Lafayette Blues’ on April 16.
Although a release date for their collaboration has yet to be announced, Milk has a lot on his plate these days. Aside from his solo endeavors, the 27-year-old is also a member of the supergroup Random Axe, alongside rappers Sean Price and Guilty Simpson. The trio is prepping the release of their self-titled Duck Down Records debut, which drops June 14.
