Detroit-born emcee and producer Black Milk has a sound that defies convention. “Progressive music,” he calls it. It blurs genres and crosses stylistic boundaries (like that time he collaborated with Jack White). He also, for instance, went on tour with a four-piece band comprised of bass, guitar, keyboard, and a DJ. But when people approach him to comment that his sound is a throwback to so-called "real" hip-hop (a debate that’s waged in media of late), he rejects it.

People look at me and say things like, ‘you’re producing that real hip-hop … That sh-t gets annoying after a while. Like, what is ‘real hip-hop’? What the f–k is that? It’s all music. Some of it’s good, some of it’s bad. But I’m not necessarily trying to be waving the flag for real hip-hop. I’m just trying to be the one that’s waving the flag for the artist that’s creating progressive music.”

Such is the confident voice of Black Milk, one of hip hop’s rising stars. 

Oh my god.

Billy Bob Thornton Is The Devil You Don’t Know On ‘Fargo’

Not that he’s Mephistopheles, himself. At least it’s not spelled out in the first four episodes made available for review. But a Coen-Buscemi goofball? No way. He’s Lorne Malvo, almost an anagram for malevolent and he lives up to his name. Still, one of the admirable aspects of so many FX series … is that the producers aren’t afraid to make their bad guys and gals charismatic. As the devil should be.

Rejoice, folks. We’ve got a new amazing drama we can add to our weekly TV lineup.

102 years ago tonight the Titanic struck an iceberg and sank less than three hours later. 

Take a look at this photo series from Retronaut highlighting the construction of the ship. 

Your delicate ears may not be able to handle the supercharged garage rock of The Pack A.D.
Watch them perform in a dormant water pumping station. Yes, it’s just as cool as it sounds.
