Get the Factz on Mickey

“I’d like to think I’m everything that Afrika Bambaataa would’ve envisioned hip-hop to be in 2008, 2016, 2030.” – Mickey Factz, SPIN Magazine (May 2008)

I've been waiting a long time for Mickey Factz to release something new so that i can spit out a blog bout this kid. Proclaiming himself as the "Digital Messiah of music" Mickey's rap skills are just as dope as the electro beats he tends to flow over. Dark Phoenix #ALPHA is a little to artistic for my taste but the opening song "Sunrise" is lyrically superior to anything that has been released in a while. With its intense minute long intro thats sounds like i'm watching some avatar shit the track serves up emotionally driven verses over a sick dark beat. Mickey lets his emotions go over some sick Phoenix sampled tracks and then changes it up by spittin' some dope verses over an up and down bass driven beat for the song "Still I Rise". Overall i would suggest purchasing it in anticipation of Mickey releasing a legit CD. Like the majority of Mickey's music this CD is available for free via his myspace... http://www.myspace.com/itzmickey
