Last night the very tall DJ Bizzon took his "Takeover" one step further by releasing a mixtape that put some of his favorite industry joints right next to some of his favorite local cuts – oh, which he took the time to remix.

Already known by Milwaukee hip-hop fans as the man behind the microphone of the MadKids show on 91.7 FM every Tuesday night and the guy that hosts freestyle battles, the Tap Milwaukee writer had yet to truly establish himself as a mixtape DJ.

"The Takeover Vol. 1" rectifies that.

If you weren't able to make it to the release show because of the weather, you can grab the mixtape here for free.
