Just a few weeks ago Dana Coppafeel and Reason released an EP called "Know Flight Zone" on Milwaukee's Uni.Fi Records.

Dana, who is one of Milwaukee's busiest emcees and hip-hop promoters, knows the formula for success today – a constant stream of music videos.

Earlier this week Dana and Reason released their second music video for the project, "How It Seems," which features Elle Razberry and Kiran Vee (of Fresh Cut Collective). The video was shot and directed by Ku Mays, who has been popping up a lot lately.

It doesn't stop there, though, as Dana and Reason have released the instrumentals from "Know Flight Zone" as a free download for all of the aspiring rappers out there to go crazy over, at the duo's Bandcamp page.
