A little bit about me…
I’m half black/ half white which is where the name “Black Milk” was birthed from and I’m very proud to be reppin the best of both world’s like our President Barack. Even have a clothing line targeted towards my mixed folks called Mixedwel/ Halfrica I was born and bred in a small desert town in the middle of no where called Blythe, Ca where I was raised on my Grandparent’s alfalfa (hay) farm where I was getting up at 4 am in the morning at the age of 8 to work driving the tractor. When I was wasn’t working on the farm I was in my father’s karate studio training and teaching as I’m a 2nd degree black belt presently. As soon as I was old enough to move out of my small home town I did just that for all the opportunities the LA/ OC area has to offer where I currently reside.
Growing up with a white father and a black mother I was exposed to all sort of soulful music that I still enjoy to this day like Earth, Wind, and Fire, The Chilite’s, Michael McDonald, Al Green, and Stevie Wonder just to name a few. All that dope music in my life inspired me to get into the radio industry where I was a radio personality for a while till I just flat out couldn’t stand the politics and mainstream music that was being played on the daily. These days I listen to one of my all time favorite singers Dwele where it is my personal mission educate those that are sleeping on him that he isn’t just the “guy on the Mc Donald’s commercial” or the “guy singing on Kanye West’s Flashing Light’s” track lol Anthony Hamilton, Floetry, Musiq Soulchild, Jill Scott, and Diondre Jermaine are a few other soul artist I enjoy. Aside from the soul I love real hip hop like Common, Mos Def, Slum Village, and pretty much anything else with substance and meaning that’s not on the radio along with a dance to go with it. lol
Hopefully all thee above give’s you some insight on who I am and what I plan to bring to the table. If you want to know more about me feel free to ask as I’m an open book.
