Interview with Mike SB


Mike Richard, A.K.A. Mike SB, is an 18 year old college student from Pompano Beach, Florida. Music has always been a passion of his, a creative way of expressing himself, whether it's beat-boxing or rhyming and even a little bit of production here and there. He'd really love to be able to change lives with my music and inspire the youth, to make them aware of the fact that you can chase your dream and be successful. He recently released his debut mix tape titled Life here - http://www.datpiff.com/Mike-SB-Life-mixtape.608198.html

What city do you represent? 
"I represent Pompano Beach, Florida. But I feel the better question would be, "What do you represent, in general?" I represent positivity, enlightenment, awakening, personal growth and having a great time. Living life. All of this is portrayed in my music."

What was the first Hip-Hop CD you bought?
"Personally, I think it was Ludacris' Red Light District. But way before that my brother put me on to the real. I'm a 90's baby, so unconsciously I embraced the era."

Are you affiliated with any groups or labels?
"Me and my buddies started PotEntertainment, which is basically our means of making dreams reality. I'm independent. Follow @PotEntertainment on Instagram for the most PotEnt Pot Entertainment."

What is your favorite part of making music?
"To be honest with you, my favorite part of making music is having the ability to express myself, where in some areas I might of been too shy to otherwise. I also like changing lives, including my own. On the mic it's like i'm in a whole other world. I feel like I can save the people, one song at a time."

If you could perform at any venue in the world, where would it be?
"If I could perform anywhere in the world, I'd take the fam to Jamaica. One love."




Who has the biggest influence on your style?
"I'm a product of my environment, influenced by everything around me. In this Hip Hop game? Joey Bada$$ woke me up. Some people just need a little nudge once in a while ya know?"

If you could feature any artist on a track, whom would you choose?
"I'd love to get a feature from Lil B, on the real. Either him or Action Bronson. Riff Raff too."

What do you want your fans to take from your music?
"I want to give my fans something to relate to when everything else fails you know. I want to be that kid that you can listen to because he's giving you hope, who motivates you to start your day, to chase your dream. That's my dream, to touch them with my music."

How would you describe your life journey, up to today, in 5 words?
"One Hell Of An Experience."

What can we expect from your next project?
"Positive trap music, i'm going to try and dive into that genre. Expect what you'd expect from any other artist's release, BANGERS. This is my life, also the Hip Hop rennassaince, so expect to be mind blown. Open your minds."

Once again Rob Twizz shows us that he has had an awesome summer. The only thing better than a pool party is one with some nice babes and Rob Twizz delivers. Can't wait to see what is next from this New York artist.
