Black Milk & Nat Turner – 4 Blacks

Black Milk & Nat Turner

Black Milk returns alongside his band Nat Turner consisting of Aaron “Ab” Abernathy on keys, Malik Hunter on bass, and Zebulun “Z” Horton on drums with a live instrumental LP, The Rebellion Sessions, a jazz-funk opus recorded over the span of one week.

“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,” Black Milk told The FADER. “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.”

The 10-track album is out on April 4th and you can get a taste with a stream of “4 Blacks.” You’ll find the track below, along with the cover art and tracklisting.
