Mic Taylor has been in the studio relentlessly preparing for his debut album. In the process, Taylor has recorded an EP and several other gems like this one. After a hectic winter filled with shows and promo, Taylor plans to drop his album Spring 2015.
Mic Taylor is a 21-year-old emcee from the Altgeld Gardens projects on the far southside of Chicago, IL. His hard origins gave him room to prosper – and prosper he has. Taylor has not only used his music as an avenue to escape the poverty-stricken fate of many of his counterparts, but also to spread messages, express his creativity, tell intricate stories, and everything in between.
Taylor has also had success as a baseball player and a college student. Multiple injuries had led to the demise of his baseball career, but Taylor has never been one to stop. A man of passion, Taylor had no choice but to pursue his first love: hip-hop. Taylor started his music career with a few of his lifetime friends whom he maintains personal and business relationship with today. He started recording his early work himself, along with mixing and mastering. Taylor boasts a hard work ethic, releasing about 70 songs and a few projects within a year, and that number is still rising. His music has led to him working with the likes of Syleena Johnson & Rhymefest amongst others; all of this with no manager and a small but growing fanbase. Taylor has emerged on the hip-hop scene displaying unique, witty lyricism and a keen sense of versatility. He draws comparisons to artists such as J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Nas, etc. but always finds a way to set himself apart. Taylor is constantly showing the music world that he is here to stay!
