There are quite a few events occurring in February in the Milwaukee Hip-Hop scene. Many new releases from artists such as Amerikas Addiction‘s highly anticipated Valentines Day project, as well as the regular weekly showcases all across the city. But a few events stick out over the rest and those are listed below. If you have an event you want featured, submit all the information to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. We hope to see you guys out at at least one of these dope events. ~Biggz
On Wednesday February 12, at the UWM Fireside Lounge, national touring Spoken Word artist Kwabena Antoine Nixon graces the stage at the Lyrical Sanctuary Open Mic & Performance series. The event starts at 8:00 pm and runs until 10:00pm. Prior to the performances, a writing workshop will be held at the UWM Inclusive Excellence Center (Union 198) from 7:00 until 7:45. You can find the official Facebook Event page by clicking here. This event is sponsored in part by the UWM Black Cultural Center and The Black Student Union.
On February 28th at the Riverwest Public House, be sure to catch OSAT recording artist Gerald Walker, out on his Target Practice Tour. The Chicago native and friend of Milwaukee headlines his first national tour and brings one hell of a live performance for the fans to enjoy. Also appearing that evening will be fellow artists: Wave Chapelle, Klassik, Yo Dot, and fellow OSAT member Pizzle. The show is 21+ with a $5 cover but if you follow the directions on the flyer you can get in free with an RSVP.
Last but not least, South-side Hip-Hop artist and promoter extraordinaire Sinista New Breed re-emerges on the scene with the I Put On show at Club Hotwater. He has selected an excellent pool of talent and the line up looks to be one to bring the house down. In order to give each artist an equal amount of shine, performers were issued their own personalized flyers. Great marketing idea. They can use this for all of their promotional needs as well as add it to their resume. The event is 21+ and has a $5 cover charge but will not disappoint.
