After the fall of No Limit Records and the uprising of Cash Money, little has been heard on a national scale from former No Limit artists.
Track Lacer, an artist that has bounced around from Milwaukee and Atlanta – recently moving back to Milwaukee from Atlanta after being in the South for several years – recently released a track featuring one of the most talented artists from the old No Limits stable.
Track Lacer's new song, "DownSouth.com" features Fiend, who, in my opinion, released the best album on No Limit Records with his debut "There's One In Every Family."
The song details Track Lacer's connections to the South, mixed with words about rising from the struggle, while Fiend weaves in a quick tale about Hurricane Katrina's effect on New Orleans.
While Track Lacer isn't the most skilled rapper on the microphone, the sentiment of the inspirational message that he's delivering on the track trumps any lacking.
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.
