Milwaukee hip-hop artists Dana Coppafeel & SPEAK Easy are back with a second single today, “Wait.” A modern love song, “Wait” is off the forthcoming April EP, Uni.Fi Records Presents…Dana Coppafeel and SPEAK Easy and showcases a very different style and attitude than their comical, first joint, “One of These Kids.”
“What first started as a simple loop, given to Uni-Fi Records by Milwaukee producer CameOne, turned into the masterpiece you hear today,” explains Coppafeel of how “Wait” came about. “Featured artist Klassik was struck with inspiration when he first heard the loop and we knew we had something.”
The first single/video “One of These Kids”, dropped in November of 2012 The video was just premiered on MTVhive.com on 1/11/13 www.mtvhive.com/2013/01/11/dana-c…these-kids-video/— brings two of Uni.Fi’s hardest-working, yet dissimilar, emcees together for a head-nodding seven-track ride that is as much about musicality and instrumentation as it is about lyricism and style.
The unusual partnership has been a boundary-pusher for both rappers; and the especially-collaborative process, that engaged national and local artists, musicians and producers, has added a new dimension to their sound as well.
