**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.
Purple Label member AG Da Gift hit his fans with a brand new project at the end of last month called Pardon The Interruption: The Gift Tape. He has also released a few single/video combos to help generate some interest in the tape. One of said offerings is “Shine” which entails a guest appearance as well as production from fellow Purple Label mate Rich P. It serves as the second official record off of the collective. It’s a super refined number with honest premium content and a carefree vibe. Overall, it’s a pretty nice selection.
