From the beginning of his music career, $ir Mike has always considered songwriting as the most important part of the music creation process. He takes his lyrics seriously and has also created some merchandise. “Early in my career, I had a dozen of good songs that I believed in. I learned quickly that I also needed to grow a lineup of merchandise with meaning alongside the music so that when people see these things, all they can think is $ir Mike,” he says.
Today, all he does is stay in charge of creating new material and content for his record label once the pandemic blows over. His five-year goal is to sign more artists, release new projects, promote them, and also go on a nationwide tour and possibly a global tour. In an oversaturated hip-hop world, $ir Mike plans to stand out, make himself more well-known, and build a community of loyal fans who enjoy his music and are inspired by it.
For $ir Mike, he sees his music as “medicine and candy.” He strongly believes that he only needs to reach the right audience and get them hooked to the raw hip-hop that he has to offer. He talks about society’s realities in his songs while creating an avenue to bring up other upcoming artists and make more money from music. $ir Mike plans to invest in other ventures so he can make more money to uplift his family and artists he plans to sign to 333 Records.
