P. Blackk is an 18-year old Columbus rapper with ties to Fly.Union and ex-Fly.U rapper L.e For the Uncool. He's a lot like those dudes socially conscious but also fashion-conscious, hipster-friendly and prone to poking fun at empty thug stereotypes and rappers' braggadocio. He's also immensely talented.

Blackk and L.e contribute to a new-ish local blog called Milk+Syrup, which posted the free download of Blackk's debut mixtape "Chicken 'N Waffles" two months ago. I just discovered it this weekend and instantly fell in love; look for a review in this Thursday's paper. In the meantime, download the damn thing for free at Milk+Syrup and enjoy!
