Billboard Burnem is a veteran Milwaukee artist whose reputation definitely precedes him. Known for proudly representing the South-side of the city and not being afraid to shake things up, the well-established emcee has been in the game since he was just 14 years old
Over the years, Burnem has released a respectable collective of projects and music videos. Which have seen him collaborate with fellow industry peers such as Yo Gotti and Future. He has also graced a few major stages (Summerfest, SXSW, & The Official Super Bowl Afterparty), toured with artists who are signed to legendary New Orleans rapper/business mogul, Master P; and rocked the mic under the same roof as names such as: Young Money, Nelly, Twista, Tory Lanez, Boosie, Shawna, and the list goes on.
However, things haven’t always been so pleasant for the South-side bred talent. An unfortunate run-in with the law landed him on Milwaukee’s Most Wanted List and ultimately took him out of the game for about six years. But Burnem isn’t the type to stay down for very long. Upon his release, he hit the ground running and has yet to look back.
He began to utilize his colourful personality to step into the event/hosting game. And he began to utilize his uncanny ability to garner mass attention towards his brand as a platform for getting into charity work. A few causes near and dear to his heart include homelessness, breast cancer, heroin addiction, autism, and natural disasters. His overall mission is to use his platform to donate funds and bring awareness to critical situations. Advertising a legacy that transitioned from negative to positive and is constantly growing, Billboard Burnem is an artist/activist that is likely to remain a household name well beyond his years. His top-quality music and humanitarian efforts are much-needed staples in the Hip-Hop community.

Tell us something about yourself that people need to know.
Something people don't know is that my latest album is like a documentary. I was really on the most wanted, escaped from jail, and beat some murder charges. I just use all the negativity they put on my name and reverse it into positive. Now I'm in the position to really make things shake up.
