**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.
Today kicks off the official week of the #ISupport Volume 3 release. The big day is this Thursday (12/18) and the release event goes down at 9pm at Jesse’s Bar. The above flyer has all of the details for those interested in coming out. There is a $5 cover but you get a free copy of the project in return. Couldn’t think of a better way to kick off the week than to show love to a long time site affiliate. Rich P. has had a solid year, dropping hints of new music here and there. And he has everyone on pins & needles as they await the release of his Rich P. & Friends project. He is also currently a co-host on the newly revised Lexi Trenee radio show and he has a movie related venture in the works as well. So he’s definitely been keeping busy.
Haven’t had a full length Rich P solo track on the site in about a year. So figured it was time to change that. Two days ago the Purple Label artist dropped his new single “Trump” via Facebook. It serves as a promotional track to fill the craving that his supporters may be having for some new music until he drops the highly anticipated Rich P. & Friends project.
