, aka Michael Atha. After spending his early
years bouncing between Alabama and Tennessee, and witnessing life on White
America’s trailer parks/ Black America’s ghettos, Michael turned this exposure
into a fresh and exciting career as one of the USA’s newest rap superstars.
His love affair with rap music began by chance when his
mother was host to a group of friends who happened to be the road crew for Run
DMC. The kid who had grown up with Southern Rock ‘n’ Roll became exposed to
songs like ‘My Adidas’ and The Beastie Boys’ “Paul Revere”, and the rest, as
they say, is history.
His big break came in 2010, when his independent release “Trunk
Muzik” excited the music press, leading to numerous magazine front covers, a
record deal with Ghet-O-Vision/Interscope Records followed by a partnership
with Eminem’s label ‘Shady Records’.
Although he’s been releasing music since the early 2000’s,
his new album ‘Radioactive’ is being treated as his debut. And based on his success
so far, there’s no way you would want to miss one of the four UK shows he has
planned in May.
