Milwaukee, WI has a very rich and prestigious underground Hip Hop scene. One of the MC’s who represents the scene to it’s core is john doe.
john doe (of WZRD) is a very talented, yet humble, lyricist and storyteller from Milwaukee, WI. He is currently affiliated with Outlawed By Outlawed, and the Ill-Luminati. His goal, along with a few other local artists, is to bring substance back to hip hop. He plans to achieve this by never dumbing down his lyrical content or the subject matter of his mentally graphic music.
His influences include Rakim, The D.O.C, Tool, Rage Against the Machine, Paris, Public Enemy, KRS One, Wu Tang Clan, Army of the Pharaohs, King Sun, The Fugees, Outkast, Common, Nas, AZ, Goodie Mob, EPMD, Nivana, Stone Templed Pilots, Block McCloud, Grave Diggaz, Digital Underground, Krizz Kaliko, Tech Nine and Tha Dogg Pound. Their production, motivation, verbal acumen, stage presence, and community involvement had a major impact on him.
He’s performed and/or recorded with artists such as; Bukue One, Block McCloud, KrumbSnatcha, Toki Wright, Dizzy Dizasta, Tattoo, Natas, Mastermind, Bizarre, Cappadonna, Danny the Wild Child, Phantom 45, 3D, Army of the Pharaohs, and Sunny Vegas.
He’s always willing to donate his time and talent to a worthy cause. Benefits which include 2nd Harvest House, Food for Families, Emergency Relief (Toys for Tots, Coat for Kids, etc…), Hope House, Autism, Hurricane Sandy’s victims, and Homelessness.
Music is his life and all he wants is for the world to listen.
To say john doe does it for Hip Hop is a gross understatement. Doe not only lives it in the booth, but he lives it in his life in general. Often times people forget why they do something or where they come from. john doe is certainly not one of those people.
