Underground Artist of the Month for February 2022


Growing up in between London and the Bronx, underground rapper MIKE, who is now based only in the Bronx, reflects the mundanity of city life through hazy, soul-sampling, experimental rap. Inspired by the likes of King Krule, and MF Doom, MIKE has released a steady flow of solid mixtapes, making a name for himself with his musings on mental health, resistance and black identity. His last realese, entitled Disco!, was his best yet with even beter work yet to come.
