Today's Song of the Day, as chosen by Gabriel Teodros, host of Early on KEXP, is "No Wish" by Black Milk feat. Phonte & Raphael Saadiq, from the 2023 album Everybody Good? on Mass Appeal / Computer Ugly.
Detroit-based producer, MC, and musician Black Milk returned with his eighth studio album Everybody Good? this summer, featuring special guests like Mick Jenkins, Karriem Riggins, and Quelle Chris. On today's Song of the Day, North Carolina rapper Phonte delivers a powerful, confessional, and personal guest verse against a track produced by award-winning artist Raphael Saadiq. It's the only song of the new LP that isn't produced or co-produced by Black Milk himself.
