MvkeyyJ- How did you get that name?
My Artist name is MvkeyyJ, but pronounced MikeyyJ. A little confusing, but it draws in most people. It came from my friend Redmon actually, he had told me that I needed a cool rap name, but I didn’t have any in mind. I eventually decided on MvkeyyJ because my mother calls me Mikeyy Mike and then my middle name is Jamaal. Put the 2 together and there you go!
What drew you to the music industry?
Honestly, I’m a very honest person and at the time I was really into hip hop but didn’t hear what I wanted to. In the end, I decided to create what I wanted to hear.
Is your family musical?
My family is pretty musical. My younger brother is an all-state choir LEGEND and my father is the best writer/composer that I know.
How has your music evolved since you first began playing music?
Music for me has honestly been something I’ve always excelled at. Since the beginning, I had the flow and style to compete, but I don’t believe it was until recently that I began to evolve into the artist I want to be. I’m starting to explore the aspects of life and things that I never really touched on before.
Do you have a record label?
As far as a label goes, I am currently independent, but that’s not to say I don’t have a few things in the works…I can’t speak much on it now, but things might change soon.
