Portland, OR – Artist Mic Mar had a unique beginning to his flourishing music career. Tempted by friends to collaborate on a song, the now 25-year-old artist discovered he had a knack for the art of the rhyme at 17-years-old. His competitive spirit, can-do attitude, and innate sense of creativity led him to discover that music could become something more than just a hobby – and instead, be a lifelong career and passion. A big believer in fate and destiny, Mic Mar abides by the philosophy, “Life’s too short to not do what you want to do.”

The young artist finds influence in fellow rapper and Pacific Northwest native, Macklemore. The two artists share a zest for the rap game in cities that are heavily saturated with rock and alternative music and a gift for storytelling and seeing meaning in everything.

An avid storyteller, Mic Mar’s music is deep, uplifting, and inspirational. His music is a reflection of his perspectives on struggle, which makes his audience vast, as everyone can relate on some level. His “young lit hippy” brand and persona emit vibes of “peace, love and good vibes,” laughs Mar.

The imaginative rapper recently debuted his latest video, a song entitled “Good Morning,” on November 23rd, which teases the release of his impending mixtape, Kidz From The Woodz, which hits digital platforms on January 31st, 2017. The song “Good Morning” is, as the artist describes, “an awakening.” An introduction into who the young lit hippy really is, the song is about sharing your truth, which is exactly what Mic Mar is out to do.

Coming straight outta the Chi, comes a MJ Grizz, who carries a smooth flow and demeanor with the lyricism to match.

Mj Grizz just released an introspective and reflective track, “Outside Lookin In” produced by A DOT that touches on working towards your dreams even when it’s tough remembering why you started on your journey.

Combining forces with management phenom Smit of BDM Management, Mj Grizz has a new direction and movement as Smit brings a wealth of knowledge and connections in the industry from radio to the blogs.

“The track samples Erykah Badu’s Bag Lady.” Mj said, “This song is one of those records that means a lot to me. It helps me get through the moments when I’m going through some shit. It reminds me to trust the process and never give up.”

Growing up, Mj often felt like others doubted him and downplayed his dreams. He wanted to take that negative energy he was harboring and turn it into a positive for his fans to relate.

“Yeah, this song is for the underdog and the outcast. The ones who can’t speak up for themselves. The ones who have big dreams and visions that no can see yet but know they’re coming,”Mj also stated.

Mj always had a love and passion for music at an early age. He grew up in Bolingbrook, a small suburb outside of Chicago and began his journey into Hip-Hop at the age of 20. Since then, he has become a prominent name in the local scene.

“The local scene is great. A lot of dope artists are coming up from the city. It’s not like Atlanta where everyone support each other but it’s also very much competitive and it seems like most people have that every man for himself mentality,” said.

Mj Grizz is currently working on more music and content to be released in 2020. His message to his day 1 fans and supporters is, “I just appreciate everyone who’s been with me on this journey and I got a lot more music for you in the future. I appreciate every fan and person who shared my music, who follows me and plays my music when they have the aux cord. Thank you all. I got a long way to go but It’s going to be one hell of a ride.”
