With the release of instrumental LP The Rebellion Sessions, rapper/producer Black Milk and live band Nat Turner will be headed back to the U.S. for The Rebellion Tour in June. Currently playing shows in Europe, Black Milk and Nat Turner will be performing select tunes from The Rebellion Sessions in addition to songs from Black Milk’s extensive catalog.

As one of the most prodigious and versatile talents in the world of Hip-Hop, Black Milk enlisted his powerhouse live band Nat Turner (Aaron “Ab” Abernathy on keys, Malik Hunter on bass, and Zebulun “Z” Horton on drums) for The Rebellion Sessions, which he calls “a fusion of Jazz and Funk orchestrated from a Hip-Hop producer’s standpoint." The project was met by critical acclaim, with Pitchfork calling it "a raw and unhindered affair that brings to mind organic hip-hop experimenters like Dilla and A Tribe Called Quest." The Rebellion Sessions at times recalls the works of Fela Kuti, Charles Mingus, Miles Davis, Sly & The Family Stone, D’Angelo, and Robert Glasper, while building off Black Milk and Nat Turner’s incredible live show, honed over the course of years and more than 90 shows played worldwide in 2015 alone.

Announcing the project last month via The FADER, Black Milk and Nat Turner shared the non-album vocal mix of "The Rebel," featured on the instrumental album as "4 Blacks." Lead single “The Knock” debuted via AFROPUNK, who noted that the track “cuts straight to the point, opening with a pleasant and steady stream of afro-beat-laden jazz rhythms which are adorned with ambiguous and complimentary backing vocals.” Currently, Black Milk and Nat Turner are on The Rebellion Tour in Europe, and will begin the U.S. leg of the tour starting June 15.
