Smart bets: Black Milk

2014 was a prolific year for emcee and hip-hop producer Black Milk (also known as Curtis Cross) who polished his solo rap EP Glitches in the Break just months before releasing his sixth full-length record If There’s a Hell Below with his keyboard-bass-drums band Nat Turner. The Detroit-bred music veteran revels in mixing genres like hip-hop, rock and soul, and adapts readily to solo performances, joint ventures (check out his work with Mel, Danny Brown or Jack White for a treat) or band-backed gigs like his upcoming Asheville pit stop. Local neo-soul quartet Goldie & the Screamers open the show with a special Erykah Badu tribute set. Both bands play Asheville Music Hall on Wednesday, March 25, at 9 p.m. $12/$16.
