Milwaukee rapper Huey V embodies the spirit of his city and is on a journey to shine a light on his hometown. Huey V’s style exhibits a vulnerability that makes his music accessible and relatable. The stories of his experiences are embedded with pain and aspirations. Huey caught the ear of Memphis Bleek in 2020 and was immediately signed to Bleek’s label Warehouse Music Group the same year.
