Motor city representatives Jack White of The White Stripes and Black Milk have teamed up to drop a 7′ of rock, funk, and hip hop fusion to be released as the first project from Jack White’s Third Man Records.
Black Milk says this of the collab on his website:
My first reaction was one of shock that an artist like him, who most people would categorize as a rock star, would want to work with an independent hip-hop artist. My second reaction was surprise that he even knew I existed, even though we’re from the same city. Of course, my response was “Hell yeah! When and where do I need to be to make this happen?” A few back and forth emails led to my band (keyboardist AB; drummer Daru Jones; and bassist Malik Hunter) and I taking a trip to Nashville to record at Jack’s home studio.
