The whole album is up on NPR for free, and they also have a pretty decent write-up on the album and an explanation of the title. Check it out here:

yeah no doubt, i'm supporting Black Milk. i don't think i'll be able to cop it on release day tho cuz of my economy but i'll get there. "Tronic" was a nasty album and if he's evolved even more and i hope there's some soul samples on there again cuz the way he flipped that one track on "Tronic"; "Try" was one of my favorites out them all.

I saw that on NPR too and posted it at my site. NPR is slept on for their Hip Hop coverage.

I'm listening now, album sounds tight so far. He brings a rhythm in his drumming like no other artist out now and the rhyme flow is impressive. If you haven't seen of heard Black live, do so if you get a chance, the music is definitely designed for it.


I added some unreleased material along with the full album stream at my site, a download of his performance at Fat Beats NY from July 2010, one of the last ever to go down at the store, check it out:

Still isn't better than popular demand

i found it it kinda boring, the elzhi track is a huge let down IMO, they def didnt bring they A game for that one, just kinda average verses, startin to think dudes are overrated, royce is startin to get on my fucken nerves too, so little substance to his verses and his wordplay is a bit off, dude stopped makin sense a while ago, his album blew too.

to me "Tronic" was better than "Popular Demand", still haven't checked it out but which one does it remind you most of as far as style and arrangements?
