This year’s tournament will feature 16 Milwaukee-area beat makers spanning hip hop, EDM, and more, competing head-to-head in a four-round tournament over the course of eight weeks to be crowned the 2019 Big Beat MKE champion.

A beat battle consists of three one-minute rounds, where a producer plays or creates an original beat, and the winner is determined by a panel of judges, including Milwaukee musicians, media personalities, and music influencers. Big Beat MKE will feature guest judges weekly, as well as representatives from Breaking And Entering and Milwaukee-based electronic music label Nice FM.

To be selected for the tournament, producers had to submit two original beats via BreakingAndEntering.net. From there, a selection committee of 15 different Milwaukee area music-related personalities were given the difficult task of choosing the final 16 competitors. Over 30 different producers submitted entries into the contest this year. The 2019 Bracket was unveiled on Monday, April 15th. Opening round battles will take place from May 2nd-23rd, with the Quarterfinals on May 30th and June 6th, Semifinals on June 13th, and Finals on June 20th. The full bracket and nightly recaps will be available at BreakingAndEntering.net/BigBeatMKE throughout the tournament.

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.

Jay Holt The Chemist - The Formula (video submission)

Jay Holt The Chemist has the formula when is comes to rapping and he definitely has the rap game cooking up. With his lab coat and hot beat, it is hard to not be intrigued. His video “The Formula”  takes place in a vacant lot with abandoned trucks and buses, the perfect scene to stir things up without anyone seeing a thing. Videographer Gregory Conley displays his creativity with his smooth transitions and special effects that only seems to enhance each beat and verse. Jay Holt The Chemist and G.Conley are like the chemical mixtures of vinegar and baking soda: the only two chemicals that could ignite my grade school volcano during science class. Okay, I’m clearly no chemist, but I know when I looking an explosive mix, and these two have it. Watch out! Too much fire and someone can get burned.

Looney Babie - All Racks (video submission)

“All Racks Lil N*gga All Racks”. If you’re from Milwaukee, you’re probably already rockin’ to the beat in your head even before you’ve finished reading this sentence. This song goes HARD. And if you didn’t know, now ya do. Looney Babie’s hit “All Racks” is an absolute banger created by an artist who was born and bred right here in the streets of Milwaukee.


“Looney Babie first break was with Lil Boosie, after that it was destined for him to create greatness after that moment. With such great hits like, "My Baby", "All Racks", "100" and "Drip" just a few singles from his forthcoming project "Lonnner", Looney opened the doors for many other artist to pursue their dreams.

Looney Babie has a desire to work with such accomplished artist such as Ralo, NBA Young Boy, Lil Baby, YFN Lucci, Future and a host of other phenomenal musician's. He is currently continuing perfecting his craft in the studio and will be dropping soon.”

Lonney Babie is definitely on the rise, and his city is right behind him. Don’t believe me? Just hit up a club anywhere in town, you’ll see.

$killz - 4Eva Heartless Challenge (video submission)

When we say $killz literally went off, we mean it because he obviously wants all the smoke in his lyric video challenge, ‘4 Eva Heartless’, directed by TRDMRK! It’s a video that matches the rapid fire pace of $killz’s original flow. The video starts with a masked $killz that we later begin to know as a wordsmith. The screen is filled with a slow hail fire of words, to a blazing rapid fire flow with similes and metaphors that if your ears are too slow to listen, then maybe your eye might catch some of it. The clarity of the video was great too, it gave us a nice crisp feel. This is one challenge you don’t wanna miss, check it out!
