AUDIO: Dope Folks Records – “Brew City Rappin'” (Rare 90’s Milwaukee Mixtape)

The work that Dope Folks Records does, headed up by John Kuester (AKA Kid Millions), is largely underrated. Part archivists, part record label, Dope Folks puts out rare hip hop releases, largely from Milwaukee, for re-release, and in doing so preserves music that might have been lost in the abyss otherwise. In celebration of Milwaukee Day, Dope Folks Records came up with an hour long mixtape of rare Milwaukee hip hop, comprised of demos, cassettes, and limited releases from back in the day, when there was hardly a hip hop scene here, but people were still putting out music. You can also catch Dope Folks Records DJing tonight at Cactus Club, as well as find us there, for Blax’s release show and Milwaukee Day Party. Check out the track listing and mixtape below:
