Essential Listening for Hip-Hop & MKE Lovers

A beautiful, compelling exploration of the history of the hip-hop scene in Milwaukee and what hip-hop is really all about. The quest to answer the question "What was Milwaukee's first rap song?" evolves into a greater discussion of what hip-hop is and means. Essential listening for all those who love hip-hop and/or our great city of Milwaukee.

Love this story

I’ve never rated a podcast before but this one absolutely is blowing me away. Love to listen to this story told thru the eyes of many in our community with ties to hip hop. I hope you do other podcasts similar to this in the future! Only on episode 3 but wishing I had unlimited free time tomorrow to hear the rest of the story. Great work!
