“Of all the rappers in Milwaukee, Genesis Renji may be the hardest to pin down” - Shepherd Express 

“Genesis Renji has really settled into his own lane as an artist.” - Breaking and Entering

Milwaukee based hip-hop artist Genesis Renji makes his 2019 return. After a trailblazing 2018 filled with career milestones. Performances at Summerfest supporting Amine, a sold-out halftime show for the Milwaukee Bucks, and an Emmy Nomination working with TMJ4. These accomplishments have doubled down on Renji’s solid foundation.

In celebration of his 27th birthday Genesis Renji releases his first song of 2019 “Wannabe” featuring IshDARR. The anthemic reflection from two of Milwaukee’s leading artists serves as the lead single from Renji’s upcoming ‘KEEFE’ album; Renji and IshDARR speak on the feelings and memories they’ve culminated while ascending the heights to their dreams, crossing unseen thresholds and achieving feats neither originally planned at younger ages. Produced by frequent collaborator Cade Zube of Oconomowoc and mixed by producer Canis Major.

Gen is gearing up for the release of his next project ‘KEEFE’, scheduled for a September release.

Milwaukee, WI - May 8, 2019   Ex Fabula tellers return to the stage to compete for the title “Season 10 Audience Favorite”! Ex Fabula is wrapping up Season 10 with the annual ALL STARS event at Turner Hall Ballroom on Saturday, May 18th. This competitive curated StorySlam will return to Turner Hall Ballroom located in Downtown Milwaukee; doors open at 6:30pm, stories begin at 7:30pm.

What is Ex Fabula ALL STARS? ALL STARS is a StorySlam featuring community members who were voted “Audience Favorites” at regular season StorySlams; they’ll be returning to the stage to share new, 10-minute stories on the evening’s theme, “Forgiveness”. Audience members can also participate in the storytelling by submitting UltraShorts, which are brief, true personal stories written on slips of paper and then read onstage by the emcee. Then, at the end of the night, the audience votes and crowns a Season 10 Audience Favorite.

This year, the Audience Favorites are Elizabeth Brown, Julie Cole, Jude Treder-Wolff, Molly Snyder, Rick Karlson, and Matthew Lewis; these community members are currently crafting new prepared ten-minute stories to share at ALL STARS.

“Last year, the theme was ‘Connection’. The stories ran the gamut: love letters, brothers, addiction and recovery, spreading ashes, reconnecting with family roots, and even an unintentional bank robbery! ALL STARS is always a beautiful evening of feel-good entertainment and I’m so excited to hear the stories this year." says Executive Director, Megan McGee.

Ex Fabula is a Milwaukee nonprofit that has been strengthening community bonds through the art of storytelling since 2009. Please note this is an all ages event, highlighting a variety of stories. Because the nature of StorySlams, with true stories shared in an open-mic format, we do not control the content of the stories that might be shared.

ALL STARS advance tickets are available for $12 at the Pabst Theatre Group’s website; advance tickets are highly recommended and seating is general admission. 

Taiyamo Denku - Filthy (Ft. Genesis Renji)

*ALERT FROM OUR PARTNERS AT THE HOUSE OF RENJI*

90’s style hip hop cyphers seemed have been under wraps in this new day and age, as if it went into extinct under the new age hip hop and rap culture. Old school hip hop seemed to express a certain rawness and purity through the lyrics, rhymes and aggression from the rappers. This style of rap is not for the lighthearted nor amateur, which are two things that Taiyamo Denku and Genesis Renji are NOT. Taiyamo Denku’s track “Filthy”, featuring Genesis Renji, is a new bop that takes us back to this time. This track puts a spin on a “new age style production” with an old school rap beat and lyrical flow, unleashing the perfect mixture of pure passion, skill and authenticity that is rare for our time.

"CyphaDen Music Drops a new Gem this time bringing fellow Milwaukee artist Genesis Renji of House of Renji with him. Denku the Milwaukee Native emcee starts out with a heavy hard verse full of bars , lyrics and punchlines. Denku then boasts on the hook " Im Better than You" . Genesis then stylizes on the track with a good flow and delivery. Dcypha spins a new age style of production with his signature boom bap steez to make for a great one off single from Cypha den Music"

Taiyamo Denku spits his verses with a rough flow that delivers his lyrics with force. Similarly, Genesis Renji adds his own creative spin to the mix with his smooth flow and lyrical puns. This track definitely goes hard and it proves that pure hip hop still exists.
