Berner tour dates
Gilbert Milam Jr. is better known by his stage name, Berner. He is a prolific and well-known hip-hop rapper with 10 independent albums and several collaborative efforts under his belt. Berner has taken the hip hop community by storm with his fresh new rhymes and shows no sign of slowing down as famous artists line up to collaborate with him. With live shows that tend to be famously wild and slightly out of control, fans can't wait for their next opportunity to score Berner tickets to one of his energetic, off-the-wall appearances. In fact, it was in part the success of these lively and wildly well-received concerts that launched the rapper to a wider following and fame. Berner has frequently collaborated with other musicians such as The Jacka, Chris Brown and B-Real. Fans can catch Berner on tour at stops across the United States.
Berner began his musical career in the mid 2000s by participating in rap battles hosted at various open mics and coffee shops. While working on a collaborative album with Equipto in 2007, Berner founded his own Bay Area based record label, Bern One, so that he could better control the release of his music. Shortly thereafter, he released their collaborative effort, Track Money & Pack Money, as well as his debut solo, Dirty Sneakers...Plenty of Ways to Get It. An extraordinarily prolific period followed, with Berner releasing no fewer than 10 new albums, both collaboratively and independently, within the next four years or so. In 2012, after having met Wiz Khalifa, he signed to his fellow musician's label, Taylor Gang Records.
Berner has released several high-charting albums and singles in his time. One of his most notable successes 2016's Hempire, which reached No. 54 on the Billboard 200. It also did well on many other Billboard charts, including a No. 6 placement on both the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart and Independent Albums Chart.
Berner as an entrepreneur
Although most people recognize Berner for his music, he personally considers himself an entrepreneur first and foremost. Some projects, such as his label, Bern One, are related directly to his music, while others are connected in a more indirect manner. Berner is well-known for his cannabis empire, and it was his dealings in marijuana that originally served as the catalyst for his introductions to other stars of the industry, including Wiz Khalifa and The Jacka. These connections, formed through cannabis, helped Berner kickstart his own musical career.
Berner formerly ran a cannabis club and has opened a line of hempseed-infused water called Hemp2o. Berner also owns several lifestyle clothing lines, including FreshKo and Cookies.
