Born in 1994, Radontae Ashford, aka Wave Chapelle, is a hip-hop artist from the north side of Milwaukee who grew up on the sounds of Kanye West, Jay-Z, and Drake. In 2013, Wave made his debut with the mixtape It’ll All Make Sense Soon, and in early 2014 he signed on to Yo Gotti’s CMG record label, spending a few years learning from Gotti and performing all over the US and Canada. Wave has put out a steady stream of music over the last ten years, and in the fall of 2022, he partnered with the Milwaukee Bucks to become one of their official ambassadors. His music can be heard at every home game, and he has performed in front of Bucks fans at Fiserv Forum on multiple occasions. His newest album, Can’t Stop Won’t Stop, came out in early May. Wave is best known for songs like “Automatic”, “Built Different”, “Overtime”, and “Victory”. Wave has been busy this summer, performing all over Milwaukee at some of the biggest events in the city, along with out-of-town shows in Chicago and Atlanta.
