100-Word Review: Black Milk’s ‘No Poison, No Paradise’

Black Milk’s No Poison, No Paradise excels at being an album with a purpose, as the producer tagged the project with personal struggles common folks go through. Plus, the mostly sparse, effective production is consistent. “Money Bags” puts a bittersweet end to things as it’s the least ambitious song in terms of lyrics and flow; however, the beat knocks so damn hard you can’t ignore it. Black’s rapping elsewhere holds up, especially on the flagship “Sunday’s Best,” and proves he can hang with Black Thought on “Codes and Cab Fare.”

The album’s a sleeper overall, but definitely deserves attention for anyone looking for a soulful alternative to stadium-status rap.

Standout Songs: “Sunday’s Best,” “Monday’s Worst,” “Perfected on Puritan Ave.,” “Codes and Cab Fare,” “Sonny Jr.”

Songs To Skip: “X Chords”
