**Note: MKE Center Stage is a new segment to the site that will place a bit of spotlight on new releases and such from the bevy of talent in the 414. There are so many individuals involved in the local entertainment scene that it is impossible to keep up with everyone, let alone craft separate posts for all of their endeavors. But that doesn’t mean there shouldn’t be some type of acknowledgment. So every once in a while we’re going to peruse our sources and let readers know what’s popping in the Mil-Town.

Lexi Trenee F/ Rich P. & B~Free – “Holiday”

Known for her radio show, activism, and work in artist management/consultation, Lexi Trenee took everybody by surprise when she announced her decision to step into the music realm. She released her debut single this past December. It’s entitled “Holiday” and sees her teaming up with the homie Rich P. and the ever so fabulous B~Free. The song is an adequate offering with a great sentiment behind it. There is a video in the works as well but for now readers can check out the tune above.

Ole P F/ Mad Static – “Crash The Party” (Video)

It’s been a while since the city had a good solid collaboration making some noise. So it was a real treat when Ole P (Vibe Music) and Mad Static (Higher Education Records) unleashed a visual for their joint record “Crash The Party.” It is produced by eccentric spirit Rustik and the video is done by Luke Marlowe. The track is dope and can be found on Ole P’s compilation project Intro 2 #ViBEMusic which features tunes he’s done from 2009 thru 2012. And the visual is a smooth quality piece as well. So readers should definitely take a moment to check it out.

Kaylee Crossfire – “No Type Remix”

Artist/model Kaylee Crossfire has been pretty quiet on the music front for a while now as she has been working hard to get her Elite League Ent. modeling brand to new heights. However, she recently offered up a remix to Mississippi rap duo Rae Sremmurd‘s hit single “No Type.” She takes to the mic with a sassy flow and brazen bars that strikingly convey an image of a female that any guy would be hard pressed not to want on his team. She broke up her silence in a major way. It’s definitely a must listen.

Rich P. – “5AM Freestyle”

Rich P. has been hard at work getting his movie critic on lately but he hasn’t forgotten about his mic either. A couple of weeks ago, he released new music via a selection dubbed “5AM Freestyle.” It is his take on a single coined “5AM” by rapper Logic. Additionally, the effort serves as a snippet from his forthcoming project Free Tape. The work will consist primarily of freestyles over some of the Purple Label talent’s favorite beats. It is slated to hit the masses this month. And then Rich P. & Friends has been placed on the docket for a March release. So his supporters have a ton to look forward to. The freestyle is set to a trendy production with a sleek vibe and entails four star content. Rich did his thing, it’s just a shame that it’s only a sample of the cut.
And that’s a wrap for the first edition of MKE Center Stage. Hope that readers enjoyed it. Stay tuned for the next one. -MinM
