Fat Ray & Black Milk – “Get Focus” featuring Phat Kat and Elzhi

Collaboration by four of Detroit’s brightest stars from The Set Up

The Song:

"Get Focus" is the third single from Black Milk & Fat Ray’s The Set Up. Proving once again that he consistently raises the bar when it comes to the boards, Black Milk’s production shines with a hard-hitting dusty beat juxtaposed with a dreamy futuristic piano motif. Featuring Phat Kat, just coming off the success of his solo album Carte Blanche, and Elzhi, solo artist and member of Slum Village, this track challenges other emcees to step their game up with Elzhi rhyming, "It’s phenomenal, the rhyme is mo’ focused than a counter-flow / cold as the abominable snowman’s abdominal / I’m snoring, you been boring / see what I’m writing is the sh*t / and your pen’s pouring pretend urine.”


The Background:

Deemed Artist of the Year in 2007 by Detroit’s alternative weekly, Real Detroit Weekly, Black Milk follows up his recent Caltroit and Popular Demand releases with an all new collaborative LP with dirty district emcee, Fat Ray. All 11 tracks of the The Set Up are produced by Black Milk, and include guest spots from Guilty Simpson, Elzhi of Slum Village, Nametag, Scorpion, and Phat Kat. The Set Up is the inaugural release for Black Milk’s own label, Music House. Also due this year are a new Black Milk solo album and a collaborative project with Sean Price and Guilty Simpson. Fat Ray and Black Milk are two-thirds of the Detroit trio BR Gunna, whose album Dirty District, Vol. 2 (2004 Barak Records) was critically acclaimed and sold over 20,000 units.
