MIKE has been on a tear this year and has one final gift for fans just in time for the holiday season. The 19-year-old released his fourth project of 2018 in the form of War In My Pen on Friday (Dec. 21).
All 13 tracks on the effort feature production from MIKE under his DJ Blackpower moniker. Additional guest appearances enlisted throughout include Taphari, Navy Blue, King Carter, Jadasea and RedLee.
The sLUms collective leader already unleashed a trio of singles leading into the project, turning up the anticipation just a few notches with “Grabba,” “October Baby,” and the Medhane-assisted “Prayers.” MIKE spent time between London and NYC reconnecting with himself to record War In My Pen, which happens to be the pair of cities he grew up in.
The burgeoning MC has certainly lived up to his billing as one of Billboard‘s artists to watch in 2018; this year, he released three projects: Renaissance Man, Black Soap and Resistance Man.
