RawHustle.com has linked up with BamBeatz — a talented up-and-coming hip-hop producer from Miami — to present a preview clip of his “Double Black” mixtape, featuring METALLICA‘s self-titled “Black” album and JAY-Z‘s “Black” LP, which celebrated their 20th and 10th anniversaries in 2011, respectively.
The first sample of “Double Black“, which is scheduled to drop in the spring, is available at this location.
METALLICA‘s 1991 self-titled fifth album, commonly known as “the black album,” in 2009 surpassed SHANIA TWAIN‘s 1997 record, “Come On Over“, as the best-selling CD of the SoundScan era. To date, the black album has sold 15,750,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
Although METALLICA had scored their first radio and video airplay with their previous effort, 1988‘s “…And Justice For All“, the black album was the band’s biggest commercial breakthrough, producing five singles and making them into one of the most popular rock bands in the world.
METALLICA will perform “the black album” in its entirety at a number of European festivals this summer.
