Alderman Khalif J. Rainey was honored to be a guest on nationally syndicated The Breakfast Club morning talk radio program earlier today, providing him a prime opportunity to talk up next week’s Hip-Hop Week MKE.

Alderman Rainey, who sponsored legislation creating Hip-Hop Week MKE and who will host the 2nd annual official City of Milwaukee event next week (August 19 – August 25), was hosted on The Breakfast Club (on radio station Power 105 out of New York City) by DJ Envy, a New York-born DJ, music producer, and real estate investor. During Hip-Hop Week MKE DJ Envy will conduct a seminar on financial literacy and real estate on Friday, August 23 at 2220 N. MLK Dr.

“I thoroughly enjoyed my time on The Breakfast Club and was proud to give a boost to Hip-Hop Week on such a powerful morning show,” Alderman Rainey said.

“DJ Envy’s seminar next week will focus on real estate and financial literacy, speaking to the importance of money management while providing tips and key information concerning the real estate field – it is free and well worth the time of anyone interested in those topics,” the alderman said.

Hip-Hop Week MKE for 2019 will feature a celebration of old and new school Hip-Hop culture during the week of August 19th – 25th, all with a focus on how Hip-Hop has the power to transform communities through the lens of financial literacy, health/wellness and civic engagement.

Hip-Hop Week MKE is sponsored by The City of Milwaukee, the Milwaukee Bucks, The Sherman Phoenix, Alderman Rainey, the Forest County Potawatomi Community, Summerfest, Associated Bank, 88Nine Radio, Clear Channel Outdoor, The Rave/Eagles Club, Ascension, MorganDezine, The Cooperage and the Milwaukee Art Museum.
