Explain who you are for those who don’t know
I go by the name of Mymike. An Independent artist known for being a person who’s always on his grind, staying dedicated, focused on improving and being successful in life and my music career. Growing up i always was the one in my family who did anything to make my family smile and did anything to get what i wanted by getting up to go get it myself, i was taught that.
How did you come up with your name?
My name came from my mama and my family. She said i was a fat baby and everybody use to say i was their son so she would laugh and say like “naw that’s my Mymike” but that’s how my name came about. So, it’s spelled Mymike not Mike Mike because a lot of people say it wrong and i don’t like that, so i had to explain that it’s said just how it’s spelled.
Where are you from?
Being from Chicago’s south side it’s a lot going on but one thing about me i love where i’m from no matter what’s going on good or bad. It’s people who judge Chicago because of what they hear but don’t know what’s really going on or how it is to be in chicago. It’s a beautiful city, just don’t get into nothing you don’t know about.
How did you get into music?
Growing up i always loved music, that’s the only thing that would put me to sleep when my bottle couldn’t. I grew up listening to different music like old school hip hop, rap, jazz and Rnb. My whole family love music so doing music just always been my way to express and tell how i feel and what’s going on in my life.
What makes you different than other artists?
I speak realness, nothing about me is fake i can’t speak on something i never did or never saw or experience yet in life, until i do it see it or live it. I have my own style, i’m myself and i always been like that. I do things different just to show people that it’s nothing wrong with doing you and being who you are. I dress how i dress, talk how i talk, i do me. I uplift other artist to keep going and to always stay focus on your goals and to be smart on what you do.
I believe in anything is possible because it is, you can do anything you put your mind to, as long you get up and do it, nothing comes free. I get down to business about my music because i been unheard for too long so i’m doing anything i have to do to go to the next level in my music career.
What are you currently working on?
At the moment i’m working on a few projects, but i’m always writing all day anything that comes to my head or that’s on my mind i write it down or write about it. I’m currently working on 2 mixtapes that will be dropping this year. Also, i’m working on ideas for my clothing line of polos that i will be giving updates throughout the year on and getting music videos in order. It’s a lot that i’m working on but i’m taking one day at a time.
