“Mic Miles, a young budding artist from Cleveland Ohio got his start in music back in 2010, recording for fun with a group of friends. Raised by a single mother for half of his life, Miles had to resort to some creative measures to make friends. “I went to 5 different elementary schools before moving to the suburbs in 6th grade. I was always the new kid so I use to rap popular songs on the bus to make friends” says Miles.”
Explain who you are for those who don’t know
My name is Mic Miles, a hip-hop recording artist from Cleveland Ohio
How did you come up with your name?
Its my real name, I used to go by lil ice but I felt like I couldn’t go by any other name with the way that I rap. its real rap so I use my real name
Where are you from?
Originally from Cleveland Ohio moved all around the city til I was about 10 then moved to the suburbs I currently reside in Eastlake Oh beter known as “The Grease”
Whats it like growing up where youre from?
Growing up in Cleveland was hard because it’s just a tough city to be from. There’s a lot of poverty and violence around every corner but I feel like the suburbs were just as hard. Its more mental then physical violence in the burbs. In Cleveland you have might have to worry about getting shot but in the suburbs you have to worry about being a suspect just because of the way you look or just being accepted in general is hard.
How did you get into music?
My brother use to rap and he was dope so I was like man I could do that lol I really just wanted to be like him but I’ve also always had a love for music and great sounds
What makes you different than other artists?
I feel like Im different from other artists because Im actually rapping. The standard of music has gone down in my eyes nowadays all you need is a hot beat and some adlibs to be considered a good artist. No one really says anything in their music anymore so im trying to bring back real rap and real bars.
What are you currently working on?
Im currently working on a new project titled “Happy Hour” im not 100% sure if it will be another mixtape or an Ep but I do know it will be all bars hence the name “Happy Hour”.
Anything you would like to say?
My new project Happy Hour should be released by late Summer. Check out my latest mixtape “The Other Side” on spinrilla and mymixtapez. My lead single Validation from that mixtape is available on Itunes as well. My advice for any upcoming artist is to remember that this is a business at the end of the day so be about business first and foremost.
