Representing the Inland Empire, California, rapper Mick Stillz can be described best by one word: CREATIVE. From an early age, Mick was always seen by his peers as being “different”; not really fitting in, but still “cool” enough to hang out with. Mick spent most of his free time skateboarding and writing rhymes, gaining local attention for his unorthodox style.
Mick eventually headed to Europe where he performed in clubs from Germany to France, growing his fanbase internationally and sharing stages with major label artists such as New Boyz, Lumidee, Dj Unk, Lil Scrappy, Travis Porter, & more. On Sept. 5, 2010, Mick teamed up with the world renown Dj ill Will, known for his multiple mixtapes with artists such as Drake, Tyga, Plies, Travis Porter, Trey Songz, Wiz Khalifa, Big Sean and many more. Together they released Mick’s first official mixtape, "Neighborhood Nerd", which got over 6,000 downloads within the first week of release. Months later on March 7th 2011, Mick released his sophomore project "Neighborhood Nerd II" alongside Dj ill Will again; this time racking in over 7,000 downloads in less than a week.
Without the help of a major label or commercial promotion, Mick has independently built an international fanbase that continues to grow everyday. Industry experts agree, Mick is securing his place in the music industry of today, and is bound to leave a lasting impression on what we call music tomorrow. | mickstillz.com [+]
