MIKE Announces 'War in My Pen' Project, Releases New 'Prayers' Video Feat. Medhane
MIKE is putting the finishing touches on what will be his fourth project of 2018. On Wednesday (Dec. 12), the sLUms collective frontman formally announced plans for War in My Pen, which is slated to release Dec. 21. The 19-year-old added to the effort's rollout by unleashing another single with "Prayers," featuring Brooklyn's Medhane.
The coinciding visual, which was directed by the Matters Research LTD, finds MIKE alongside some friends hanging out in a bland dimly lit room, but the camera's focus doesn't allow you to make out any characteristics of the individuals starring in the clip.
Every single one of the 13 tracks on WIMP actually sees production from MIKE under his DJ Blackpower alias. "Prayers" follows "October Baby" and "Grabba" as singles appearing on the project. War in My Pen enlists a specific group of artists native to both of MIKE's homes in London and NYC with assists from Taphari, Navy Blue, King Carter, Jadasea and RedLee.
Get familiar with MIKE, who made Billboard's top 10 hip-hop and R&B artists to watch for 2018, through his previously released projects from this year in Renaissance Man, Black Soap and resistance man.
