Mic Blaque has also, worked with General Steele of Smif-n-Wessun and Umi RBG from Dead Prez. Other major accomplishments include receiving airtime with Hip Hop’s top radio stations Hot 97 and Power 105.1. Mic Blaque draws his inspiration from Gil Scott-Heron, Curtis Mayfield and Bob Marley. His versatility is what sets him apart from other rappers within the music industry. When he first began rapping, he knew early on that he didn’t want to fall into the same category as many other Hip Hop artists, who only rap about drugs, guns and money. He wanted to create music that would promote change and create awareness about real issues life puts fourth. Through expression, creativity and art, he touches on subjects such as poverty, empowerment of people, and societal issues that most rappers are too afraid to talk about.
