Black Milk collaborates with illustrator Upendo “Pen” Taylor (Nike, Leroy Jenkins, Gatorade) for the music-meets-visual instrumental/art series Fuzz, Freqs & Colors (FFC). Synth or Soul is the first volume in the FFC series. The process for each volume starts with Black and Pen trading beats and sketches and refining their works along the way. Throughout that exchange, the music is shaped by the visual art and the visual art is shaped by the music.
FFC is the first project launched by the new creative house Computer Ugly.

Production, Lyrics, just quality music. The whole album is fire, hard to just try and choose one track. Can't thank Oddisee and the Good Company band enough, seen them live in Germany and DC, even better live. The Good Company band alone puts on a show. rfloresnet
This album should come with an ear drum hazard warning. It's full of gut-busting boom and burst bap beats. Guilty just allays those 808s and heartbreaks with tales of moving work on the streets of Detroit. OSHA's on the lookout for this one. Wesley
