Sept. 2, 2009

It would have been a symbolic collaboration: hip-hop’s original rock enthusiast passing the torch to the genre’s most recent evangelist. Run-DMC rapper DMC, by coincidence visiting Milwaukee the same night as Lil Wayne’s America’s Most Wanted tour, from the show tweeted his plans of joining the headliner to sing “Walk This Way.” Though the duet never...

Tonight @ Marcus Amphitheater, 7 p.m.

What better way to wrap up the summer than with a concert filled with many of the rappers and R&B singers who soundtracked it? The artists on Lil Wayne’s America’s Most Wanted Tour can claim many of the summer’s biggest hits, from Wayne’s Young Money collaboration “Every Girl” to Jeremih’s inescapable “Birthday Sex” to Soulja Boy’s improbably awesome “Turn My Swag On.” Even down-bill singer Pleasure P scored a delectable hit earlier this summer...

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, Aug. 27, Prestige Atlantic Impulse @ Sugar Maple, 8 p.m. Affirming Victor DeLorenzo’s status as perhaps the most musically adventurous of all the Violent Femmes, the drummer’s new project, Prestige Atlantic Impulse, is an experimental jazz trio worlds removed from the Femmes’ signature folk-punk.

There isn't too much to complain about rega...

V100.7 has announced Ludacris as the headliner of its March 20 Big Jam concert at the Bradley Center. As you'll probably remember, last time Luda came to town he sparked a fabricated uproar from conservative talkers claiming his Summerfest gig would incite violence, which, of course, it didn't. Also on the bill is family-friendly "Crank That" tot Soulja Boy, who didn't show up for the las...

The big music news today is uniformly bleak�Amy Winehouse was apparently filmed hitting the crack pipe, Scott Weiland disappeared and the Coachella lineup sucks�but one headline, via MTV News, made me chuckle: �Soulja Boy Claims He�s the Hottest MC In The Game.� Up until now, I�ve given Soulja Boy a pass. �Crank That,� his runaway single, is an inoffensive, teen-friendly party track, so there...

U.S. Celluar Arena - 7 PM

Aside from perhaps T-Pain, no rapper was more ubiquitous this year than Lil Wayne. No matter that Lil Wayne didn't even release an album this year (Tha Carter III has been bumped back to 2008), his otherworldly croak and bizarre yet increasingly riveting verses were all over guest spots and mix-tapes. Given how much time Wayne has spent in the
