Today marks the release of KingHellBastard's brand new album "The War Room." I'll have much more on that release this Sunday.

Until then, check out this official remix of the latest single, "Commercial Free," which features Joell Ortiz. The remix is provided by Bastard producer Reason – with the original beat coming from White Shadow of Norway – and also features Noni Spitz.

Born in Milwaukee and raised in the Milwaukee suburb of Brown Deer, Concordia University Wisconsin alumnus Poppe has spent the majority of his life in or around the city and county of Milwaukee.

As an advocate of Milwaukee's hip-hop community Poppe began popular local music blog Milwaukee UP in March 2010. Check out the archived entries here.

Though heavy on the hip-hop, Poppe writes about other genres of music and occasionally about food, culture or sports, and is always ready to show his pride in Milwaukee and Wisconsin.
