As previously mentioned, PressDon is another artist who will be coming to the Mil courtesy of The Big Heff Industry Tour on the 25th. He is holding it down for Akron, Ohio. Coming up in the streets, PressDon turned to writing to help keep himself out of trouble. He has spent some time in a group situation, dropped a couple of albums, won a few awards, opened for the likes of Young Jeezy, and has his own label called Don Royal Entertainment. He prides himself on making music influenced by his real life experiences instead of the trends that are considered hot in today’s music industry. His goal is to change the stereotypical opinions of rappers and infuse the game with a more positive energy. At the present time, PressDon and his team are pushing his latest single “Soo Terrific.”
June 27, 2012 marked The Illixer‘s premier event. It was held at Timbuktu and featured 11 unique Milwaukee talents. DJ Ty worked the one’s and two’s, keeping the atmosphere alive. King Kamonzi of the Zulu Nation was an entertaining host who kept things light-hearted but real. The audience was a little smaller than expected. However, they were energetic and showed all of the performers a lot of love and support. Also, the performers gave each other a lot of respect as well. So it was still an encouraging environment. The staff of Timbuktu were friendly and efficient. Everyone got their drinks and food in a timely fashion. The Blaqlizt Entertainment team spread themselves throughout the venue to help out, ensuring everything ran smoothly. And the performers showed up and showed out from beginning to end. Local photographer Steve White was on deck to capture it all. Things ran a little behind schedule but really took off once they got going. Check out a top 10 list of memorable points from the performances after the jump.
