414 Live with Genesis Renji

Genesis-Renji

Genesis Renji, a 25-year-old hip hop artist, has been creating music since he was 12, freestyling with his cousins, then laying down tracks in his high school’s sound studio. When he was 21, he started an independent record label with his friends.

Last May, Renji’s hard work paid off when he won U.S. Bank’s #TourPossible Milwaukee, a competition designed to bring up-and-coming artists one step closer to the possibility of a music career.

Finalists for #TourPossible were selected through online voting, and a panel of music industry judges awarded Renji the $20,000 grand prize after a live show at Turner Hall.

With funding and confidence under his belt, Renji is investing his winnings in his label, House of Renji, expanding his reach and that of the artists with whom he collaborates.

We were excited to host Renji ahead of his performance at Nightmare on Center Street this Saturday.
