Wednesday, February 24, 2010 and Milwaukee's @WMSE presents MKE's BEST... and Milwaukee’s own 91.7 WMSE have teamed up to bring you “The Journey to Hip-Hop…Milwaukee” (also known as MKE’s Best), a compilation of some of the dopest Hip-Hop artists and producers in the Milwaukee area.

The “Journey to Hip-Hop” series is a new feature on, spotlighting a city/region’s Hip-Hop scene over the course of a month. They decided to dedicate the first series to Milwaukee.

At the beginning of February 2010, The Mad Bloggers set out on the journey with a simple goal in mind: feature Milwaukee’s best in Hip-Hop. They had always been impressed with the lyrical emcees and talented producers that Milwaukee had to offer since stumbling on the city back in April of 2009.

The Mad Bloggers love Milwaukee, though they've never set foot within city limits or even in the state of Wisconsin. However, something about the Hip-Hop scene there had spoken to them.

The compilation will include The Lab Partners, KingHellBastard, Scott Knoxx, Kid Millions, Melissa Czarnik, House of M, Yo-Dot, Ka$h, Prophetic, Haz Solo, JC Poppe, Frankie Flowers, Taiyamo Denku, Signif, Dana Coppafeel, A-Biz with production from Dylan Thomas, Adlib, Eric Mire, Dave Derrilykt, Trellmatic and several more emcees and producers.

"While no list is ever complete and we're sure we missed some artists with our compilation," said Q of The Mad Bloggers, "we made a humble attempt to spotlight and feature as many artists as we could find and could find us. We hope we did the city's Hip-Hop scene some justice."

With so much music to share, “The Journey to Hip-Hop … Milwaukee” will be a two volume compilation, dubbed “MKE’s Best, Draft” and “MKE’s Best, Light”. The compilation will be available for free download starting March 4, 2010.
