    There's no real end to Cross' aspirations here, in just over 40 minutes, he sifts through his own past while struggling to believe in a brighter future. It's just what makes this record so powerful: with some of the breeziest production one of the finest beatsmiths to grace hip hop has ever offered, Black Milk begs us all to snap out of it.

    What isn't bleak is just as powerful.

    Sonically this is, unsurprisingly, a masterful album: echoey, soulful and old-school. What’s more, it finally feels as if Black Milk’s rapping is catching up.

    It is a meticulously crafted album that goes down smooth and leaves you with something to think about.

    Like all of his albums, it’s good but not great, a consummate professional continuing to perfect his craft.

    His new one, a solo rap record called FEVER, confirms he’s still a serviceable emcee prospering as a session leader with a sense of purpose.

    Black Milk has renewed his sound, proven his skill in lyricism, and displayed his depth as an artist who is proudly using his platform to discuss political issues.
