Album Notes
After releasing two singles and a video over the past six months, Milwaukee hip-hop
emcees Dana Coppafeel & SPEAK Easy are finally releasing a collaborative effort, Uni-
Fi Records Presents: Dana Coppafeel and SPEAK Easy. Known for his loudmouth
witticism, Coppafeel has been a fixture on the Milwaukee hip-hop landscape for over a
decade. SPEAK Easy, a more purist emcee, has been making hip-hop for an even
longer time. Both artists under the same label, the unlikely pairing happened last year
when they met in the studio and the chemistry was undeniable.

"We're opposite emcees," explains Coppafeel. "In styles, sound, lyrical content—even
lifestyles. But that's what makes it interesting. We killed it in the studio."

What resulted is a hip-hop EP that is both traditional and experimental. The first single
“One of These Kids” (November 2012) premiered on MTVhive.com, who wrote,
“Honestly, it sounds like a great day: playground, shoe-shopping and cake consumption
rolled into one.”

Another track, “This Is Us” premiered on Rolling Stoneʼs “Daily Downloads” on March
14, 2013. "This track is an example of our collaborative efforts, taking original work by
Frank Dukes and making it into a symphonic collab" adds Coppafeel.

Born in Rockford, IL, and raised in Milwaukee, the wise crackinʼ Dana Coppafeel,
started as a member of the group The Rusty Pelicans. In 97-98, They Rusty Pʼs hopped
on tour with the Pharcyde. The Rusty Pelicans disbanded and in 99, he joined the group
KingHellBastard which generated a serious buzz. In 2004, Coppafeel met local party
promoter Dima Pochtarev who had opened a music studio and promoted local rap talent.
In 2006, Dima founded Uni-Fi Records and released KingHellBastard 2010 EP:
Remember the Name, among other releases.

Often described as soulful, SPEAK Easy, who started rhyming in the 90s, continues to
challenge being labeled by experimenting with style and sound, constantly changing his
sound. In the past three years he produced two albums, two EPs and a mixtape, and
was recently nominated for four Milwaukee Music Awards, including one for “Solo Artist
of the Year”. Covering topics that range from fatherhood and relationships to social
justice and childhood struggles, just like with the man himself: what you see is what you
