The Journey to Hip-Hop ... Milwaukee: KingHellBastard

Dana Coppafeel, DNA, Clark Beez, and DJ 1L collectively are KingHellBastard. Instead of reinventing the wheel, I reached out to the homie Dana Coppafeel and he hit me with their bio. Check it. Plus check out their music. We'll be bringing you more artists from Uni-Fi records too.


This is Milwaukee Hip-Hop. Dirty and honest, rugged and passionate, individual and committed to what made it great. KingHellBastard represents the culmination of over a decade of accumulated history in the Milwaukee underground hip-hop scene. Formed by members of previous groups such as The Intel Agents, The Pizdamen and The Rusty P's, the combination of experience serves as the foundation for the continued expansion of KingHellBastard as a respected touring group, as well as a constant connection to the city and the roots that make it all possible.

The music combines the funk and immediacy of live instrumentation with the sample-based propulsion of gritty hip-hop and a barrage of swaggering lyricism.

Over the past year the members of KHB have independently recorded and released four albums, received extensive regional airplay, toured the country and rocked around150 shows throughout the Midwest. Some of the major Hip-Hop artists KHB has opened for include Common, Q-Tip, Souls of Mischeif, Sadat X, Mr. Lif, Akrobatik, RA The Rugged Man, Eyedea and Abilities, J-Sands, El Da Sensei, Count Bass D, All Natural and many others.

KingHellBastard continues to bring raw, energetic, creative Hip-Hop to an ever-growing collection of stereos and stages.
