Milwaukee’s rap scene has long been underappreciated, thriving in the shadows of more prominent metropolitan heavyweights, but not for long. At the forefront of this burgeoning movement stands Myaap, a rising star whose latest single, “Actin Up,” featuring Chicken P, showcases her infectious energy.

Fresh off the second leg of Veeze’s Ganger Tour and the release of her EP “BIG MYAAP, NOT THE LIL ONE,” The FADER praised her effortless ability to switch between melodic hooks and uncut bars, a testament to her versatility and skill.

Milwaukee’s rap scene is truly Midwestern in its fusion of subcultures, drawing influences from the South, sentiments from the East, and the jubilance of the West Coast, but it is so much more than the sum of its parts. Myaap navigates this unique landscape with ease. Her viral hit “Getting to It,” which sampled ABBA’s “Dancing Queen,” and other party-ready tracks like “Wham” and “Party Crackin” (boasting over 3 million streams) showcase her fiery energy and captivating wordplay.

“Actin’ Up” features lively production and Myaap’s infectious flow. It incorporates elements of Soulja Boy’s 2007 song “Booty Meat,” a catchy hook, and an appearance from Milwaukee artist Chicken P. Actin Up is a club banger for the approaching summer.

Despite releasing her first track only a year ago, Myaap has quickly garnered a cult-like following, accumulating over 6 million streams for the bass-heavy sound that has become synonymous with her name. By combining Southern Bounce with more contemporary sounds coming out of the Chicago and Detroit street rap scenes, Myaap has carved out a unique space for herself in the rap landscape.

As Myaap continues to put on for her city and gear up to drop more music later this year, it’s clear that she is a rising star to watch. With “Actin Up” and her previous releases, Myaap is keeping the party going and solidifying her position as one the many artists putting Milwaukee on the map.
