Chester Watson (Nice quotes)

"ima need them 40 acres now"
“The world’s vibration needs to get higher,”
“Resonate with us, come share with us. If we’re in your city, bro, come ____ with us. We’re down with everybody.”

(Nice songs)


At just 20 years old, MIKE's music carries age beyond his years. Born in New Jersey, MIKE moved to London with his mother before settling in The Bronx for the remainder of his later teenage years. Both regions have had an audible influence on the young rapper's music - in England he was immersed in grime and the music of King Krule, and in the United States he was turned on to Earl Sweatshirt and MF Doom. In New York, he discovered several artists with a similar ear and style, and formed his collective [sLUms]. Consisting of sixpress, dj ???, King Carter, Jazz Jodi, and DJ Mason, the group is a diverse range of producers and rappers who each make music about the tribulations of coming of age and being black in New York City.
