Mickel was originally a graphics student, until 2003 when his daughter was born; “I kinda left designing for a short time and thats when I got into beatmaking on a more serious level.” He says, “after I felt cool about letting people hear my beats, I would go to open mic sessions just so I could play beats and rap to get a reaction. Overall I just love creativity, art, music, linking up with like-minded people and listening to their music
