Black Day In July Productions (BLK DAY) is an American independent hip-hop record label based in Detroit, Michigan. It was co-founded in 2004 by Justin Cross (Bronze Nazareth), Kevin Cross (Kevlaar 7), and E. Vincent Stephens (Apollo Brown). In late 2006 Black Day In July Productions officially became a limited liability company. 

Like Zera Yacob, who believed in following one’s natural reasoning instead of believing what one is told by others, Black Day In July Productions creates music from the soul, reporting live from the American experience, comfortably authoring trains of thought onto harmonious beats that unveil the truth. Through voices that roar above the embers and stifling smoke of day to day life we hereby present, the intriguing sound of Black Day In July.
