Decatur , Georgia (PressExposure) August 01, 2013 -- It is truly rare to find an artist who is as diverse and captivating, as he is charismatic and qualified. Mikey F unifies all of these characteristics into one incredibly marketable package. Having only recently broken through the threshhold of Atlanta's underground scene, Mikey F sets his sites on his hometown of Prince Georges County, MD. Having only been home for a few days, his newest single already has caught the attention of GoGoradio.com (DC's Largest internet radio Community), and WLVS Radio on Howard University campus.
Mikey F was born Michael Collins in Trent, New Jersey. Being born of Jamaican and Guyanese decent, Mike captures the island artistry of Jamaica with a South American Latin charm. His cousin Bernard Collins, whose band (The Abyssinians) famed hit "Satta Massagana" (which later had been adopted as a national hymn in Jamaica), served as a motivator for Mikes Music.
Mike, having grown up in Maryland since the age of 3, decided to remain out of the spotlight until his moment arrived. However he aptly occupied his time opening up for artists (such as: Pitbul, Mully Man, and The New Boyz), and writing and producing songs for other local artists.
Having Been encouraged with the support of his family, Mike decided to attend Full Sail University with his brother. However unlike most of his classmates who dropped out, Mike stayed to earn both his associates in recording arts, but also his bachelors in entertainment business, while continuing on to getting his Masters Degree.
Knowing the difference between "Book Knowledge" and "hands on experience," Mike has always believed in strong mentorship. Before attending Full Sail, he took two years under the mentorship of super producer, Chris Styles (who has been credited most for his work with 50 cent, Eminem, and more). After graduating he went to Producer Manistyles (who is credited for his work with Lil Wayne, Styles P, Wale and 50 cent).
Having now learned the business and put together his own team, Mikey F is now ready to take the industry by storm. Mikey F, Foreign Gold and C-town Records are ready, are you?
