Detroit-based producer and rapper Black Milk has today released his latest album “No Poison No Paradise” which is quickly being touted as a contender for “Top 10 Hip-Hop Albums of 2013″. Although we’re only in October, major publications including HipHopDX and Pitchfork Media have given rave reviews, and the self-produced album (minus one track) is Black Milk’s fifth, and arguably best to date.

Previous | Eminem – Berzerk
As we prepare for the release of Eminem’s MMLP2 on 5th November 2013, Eminem has released a brand new single “Rap God” through his official YouTube Channel. The previous single/video Berzerk drew mixed reviews from old and new fans, as I’m sure Rap God will set to do as the song goes viral in the next few days. Eminem spits double time but general consensus is he’s failed to recapture the spirit of the original Marshal Mathers LP. You can listen to Eminem – Rap God on the YouTube player below.

Previous | Josh Osho ft Childish Gambino – Giants
The multi talented Childish Gambino, who many may know under his stand up name Donald Glover or for his role as Troy Barnes in Community, has announced a new album titled ‘Because The Internet’. Not much has been released about the album yet besides a short video entitled Yaphet Kotto, showing CG lying face down in a dirty swimming pool, accompanied by a short freestyle thought to be off the upcoming release. If that is anything to go by it sounds like it could be some of Childish Gambino’s most promising work yet. It is scheduled for release some time in December.
