Milwaukee emcees SPEAK Easy and Dana Coopafeel drop their first single “One of These Kids”, featuring Prophetic of UMG and produced by Da Ricanstrukta on Nov 20 –off the forthcoming EP “Uni.Fi Records Presents…Dana Coppafeel and SPEAK Easy.” SPEAK Easy, known for his soulful, conscious lyrics and Dana Coppafeel, a wise cracking emcee, are an unlikely pair, but that’s what make the project so compelling.
“Trust me, I’m way out of my lane with this project,” SPEAK Easy explains about the EP. “It’s pretty cool, I’m loving it.”
The two artists are both on Uni.Fi Records, a Milwaukee label that was founded in 2004. Next year, the two will release 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.
Uni.Fi Records Presents…Dana Coppafeel and SPEAK Easy will be available early 2013. For now, look forward to the second single which will drop in December.
