So here’s the deal: this past April, Black Milk took a trip down to the Third Man Records headquarters in Nashville, Tenn. And when he got there, he and Third Man’s head-honcho, none other than Jack White, teamed-up to record a two-sided single. At first, the news was that White would be co-producing the tracks, “Brain” and “Royal Mega”, which in and of itself was pretty awesome. But it turns out dude also played guitar on “Brain” and drums on “Royal Mega”. The resulting tunes are, to be frank, pretty damn ill musically, particularly the thick organs and, as expected, insane percussion. Sure, Black Milk might not spit the most mind-bending verses, but you can’t deny his role as bandleader here. [via]
