ILL-Waukee:The Story Of Milwaukee Rap 1986-1991

8 long years. That's how long it took to complete this little film. I was always running around with a video camera back in the early 90's and would tape everything i could from television on VHS as far back as the 80's and decided i needed to somehow share this footage with everyone while i still could, so here it is. It's not the complete story of milwaukee rap but it's close. Keep in mind that i am a record collector as well as a fan of hip-hop culture so this film centers MOSTLY around the vinyl that was released from milwaukee's old school rap artists. Hope you dig it.

    This is really awesome to watch. It's cool seeing all of my old friends on here. That i grew up with in the old neighborhood. The Rock Dee part made me really sad, at a dark time in my life i would just go over his house and while he would practice DJ'ing and i would just sit and draw and he would just let me chill and it was the best. Rest in Peace Rock Dee. Long live Milwaukee hip-hop!

  20. Dope! I remember him coming by our spot and doing a quick dj piece for his show on MATA back in 97. I got in touch with him some years back (sent me a few DVD copies of the show) He was down south somewhere if I remember correctly.
