Black Milk & Danny Brown – Black & Brown EP | Cover Artwork x Tracklist

The West Coast rap scene isn’t the only one that seems to be experiencing some sort of a renaissance as after many years in the wilderness, artists from the Mid West city of Detroit are starting to break ground in the already congested regional proud domestic US Hip Hop scene. Sans Eminem, emcees such as Royce Da 5’9″, Mickey Rocks (one half of The Cool Kids), producer Denaun Porter, Elzhi and more recently Big Sean are flying the Hip Hop flag for the financially destitute city.

Black Milk and Danny Brown, collectively known as Black & Brown have also played a big part in the Motor City’s renaissance. Having released three critically acclaimed projects between 2005 and 2007, Black broke further ground in 2008 with the release of his internationally respected LP Tronic and continued this run with the release of his 2010 audaciously titled project Album Of The year. After grafting for many years in D Town’s underground Hip Hop scene, self proclaimed Dizzee Rascal fan, Danny Brown came to the attention of a wider Hop Hop loving audience with the release of his album The Hybrid and his recently Fool’s Gold distributed project XXX. Now after officially pledging to release a joint album together back in July, the young emcees have now released the artwork and tracklist [See below] for the project, entitled Black & Brown, which was inspired by their collaboration of the same name (“Black and Brown”) on Black’s Album of the Year LP.

Black & Brown‘s artwork, which draws its influences from comic strips taken from the 1960’s was designed by graphic designer and painter Upendo Taylor,who previously worked on the album artwork for Black’s other super group Random Axe. The album, being distributed via the legendary Fat Beats label features ten tracks all of which were produced by Milk and will give Wale some much needed competition as it will see the light of day on November 1st 2011.
