10 years ago I created this event to bridge the hyper-segregated Milwaukee music community. With the current landscape we find ourselves in Milwaukee, I feel the mission has been accomplished. Granted we have a long way to go, but artist like Mike Regal, Klassik, and Webster X ( to name only a few of the many great acts in our city ) are releasing music in a collaborative and encouraging environment. The concepts of east-side or north-side Hip Hop are, in essence, gone. The line between electronic and rap music have blurred so much, no one even care how you label a “genre” of music in this day and age.
So with that, I am announcing the END of the MILTOWN BEAT DOWN.
To celebrate the amazing artists who have participated in this event, we are hosting a final Battle Royale, featuring all past champions of the event. We’ve lined up Mike Regal, Reason, Bubba, CameOne, Da Ricanstrukta, Jihad Baracus, J Todd, Lex Luther, Magic Fingaz, Major On Da Beatz Ad Lib, and the people’s champion 40 Mil.
