The Mad Bloggers are on the verge of a huge project looking at local music scenes throughout the country and internationally and Milwaukee is up first (the project kicks off February 1).
If you've been following us over the last year, you know the love we have for MKE! This compilation of MKE Hip-Hop heads is just a taste of the quality music flowing out of Brew Town! Shoutout to the homie JC Poppe who was instrumental in pulling "Yo! MKE Raps" together. Download and enjoy!
"Out of love for the city and county that birthed and raised him, hip-hop artist JC Poppe has undertaken the task of putting together a compilation showcasing the extreme talent that Milwaukee has. HipHopDX.com, one of the largest hip-hop websites, and Maad Management are the official hosts and sponsors of the project.
Milwaukee, Wisconsin, also known as the “cream city” and “brew town”, is not a place traditionally known for its hip-hop music. However, just like any other large city that has a diversity of cultures, Milwaukee has a living and breathing scene that is growing and thriving. Yo! MKE Raps is a project that intends to serve as an introduction to the city’s extremely talented underground. The 19 tracks on the compilation cannot completely cover the entire soundscape Milwaukee offers but it does give the listener an insight into its many different aspects.
Yo! MKE Raps has songs that range from the most gangster to the super lyrical and poetic, by artists that have been established in the city for several years as well as those who have been active for only a couple."
