I’m known for giving Black artists their flowers, but I’ve never done it from a local standpoint to give homage to our people that were either born or raised in the Milwaukee in the form of the arts. I definitely felt it was time to give you guys a glimpse of some of the artists from the area of the cream city.
This is kind of like a newer twist to my old school “Give Our Legends Their Flowers” posts whenever I focused on Black labels. Keep in mind, there are tons of amazing musicians and entertainers from the MKE area, but I wanted to shine some light on just some of the talent I’ve observed over the years.

I’ve had the amazing pleasure of meeting The Oshi my freshman year at my alma mater the University of Wisconsin-Parkside. We took music 100 or 101 (I do not remember chile lol,) and I just knew she would be destined for greatness. If you ask me, The Oshi is one of Milwaukee’s most talented female rappers. I love her flow, versatility and all.
Favorite project: “3”
Knicksyn is another talented musician from Milwaukee I HAVE to give my flowers to. She currently resides in Minnesota, but Milwaukee is her hometown so you know I had to shine light on the MKE natives too! I love everything about her flow, lyricism and production just really gets me! Make sure you look up Knicksyn on Soundcloud & YouTube! I promise you won’t be disappointed.
Favorite project: Boss Bitch Magic
Anti Marie is such a sweetheart! & she is definitely one of the flyest and dopest lyricists in the 414 area! She is just whew, so amazing. I love her music!
In the future, I will definitely go more in depth with local artists in the Milwaukee area..so this is a teaser for what’s to come￼! ☺️😉
