“Damn, I Didn’t Know it was This Many Talented People from Milwaukee” Sounds from Milwaukee, WI

I know, that’s why I made this list…

Milwaukee has the infrastructure and talent to become the next big city known for its music scene. There are over 100 artists who rap, sing, produce, engineer and/or any mix of these things. So the purpose of this article is to compile a working list of established and emerging artists from the ill streets of Milwaukee. Ranging from “banging/jacking” (Original Milwaukee sound music with a southern bounce) to neo-soul, Milwaukee houses it all. ILL4MIL is a compilation of music to display the diversity in genres from Milwaukee. In no way does the playlist capture all music from Milwaukee, however, it is a great start. The overall goal of the playlist, as well as this article, is to shine the brightest light on music from Milwaukee. Know that this could have very well been an article of how music is saving the city, unites different causes daily, or even a compiled list of producers and engineers but this article is not that. However, it acts a gateway to learning more about the city through each artist’s music. Below is the most fire playlist yet, as it has the varying sounds from Milwaukee, WI. This playlist is of mixed skills meaning there are artists who sound better than others for various reasons such as time in the game, production, substance, and bars, however, each song on the list is a BANGER in its own right. While compiling this playlist I had two goals in mind. One put on for the city. Two demonstrate that there is a lot of talent to support. ILL4MIL has 142 songs showcasing my love for Milwaukee and music. It’s over 100 artists with well over 50 sounds, you’re guaranteed to like someone on the list. Listen to these tracks!

ALL artists are “Googleable” as a majority are already on major streaming websites. All artists pages are hyperlinked, dare to explore.
