Black Milk kills Vancouver softly with Nat Turner [Review]

Tweet

Vancouver, BCBlack Milk has performed in Vancouver a couple of times now and he’s one of few artists I’ve made the effort of seeing more than once. His most recent appearance was at Venue on July 3 to a perfectly packed house — in that I mean you could still move around and get up close to the stage if you wanted.  Opening acts included KIDS, ILL-Legitimate, Attikus and the high-energy rapid-fire lyricism of Northwest Division. The openers killed it, getting the crowd hyped up and buzzing as they waited for Black Milk to take the stage.

For those unfamiliar with Milk, he travels with a live band, Nat Turner – which almost always makes for a better quality of live music. Combine that with his veteran stage presence and delivery and you are pretty much guaranteed a dope experience.

I was decently turnt by mid-set and busy shooting photos, but from what I recall it was a fairly lengthy performance. Fans definitely got their money’s worth.

After it was all said and done, and as people made their way to the exits to hunt pizza slices on Granville, I noticed Black Milk and crew stuck around to kick it with fans and pose for photos. Always a classy move on an artist’s part. I got to chat briefly with the Detroit emcee and he was super humble and genuinely down to earth.

All in all I can’t think of another hip-hop show I’ve been to where I’ve had fun from the minute I walked in the door to the minute I left. Venue has a sick atmosphere, the crowd was hype, openers were high quality, and the main event was next-level.  I recommend you keep tab on Black Milk’s next venture to Vancouver and attend if you have the chance. You’re in for a good time!
