When several solo artists announce they’re forming a supergroup you have to take it with a grain of salt. So few of these projects ever get past one or two songs. Random Axe, a group consisting of Black Milk, Sean Price and Guilty Simpson, looked to be one of those groups.
In late 2008 Black Milk told DX the trio would drop in the album in early 2009, and two years later the album still isn’t out. Progress was made however, in mid 2009 the group signed with Duck Down Records. Now it looks like fans will be treated to the album soon. Black Milk took to Twitter yesterday and announced the album was complete and mastered.

The Detroit producer/emcee even posted a screenshot of the tracklist, consisting of 15 tracks including the 2009 song “Monster Babies “
