Today we’d like to introduce you to Mic Handz.
Hi Mic, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstories with our readers?
Started doing music in the 4th grade due to a music teacher in my school ps 249 named Mrs. Beck. Continued to perform throughout my educational career. Joined a boy band in the 7th grade and rehearsed and performed until that was disbanded.
I started to write rhymes in the 8th grade due to the influence of two friends Aaron and Chris. Went on to continue to pursue music for the next 20-plus years which took me around the globe and afforded me the opportunity to record and perform with 90 percent of my musical idols of Hip-hop.
Dedication delusions and love is actually the perfect compound of ignorance and talent that fuel the dreams of sleepwalking entertainers worldwide
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
Nothing worth wild is a smooth road and if it is, it probably won’t last long.
There were financial setbacks, familial setbacks, focus-based setbacks, self-doubt setbacks, mental health and trauma-based setbacks, misguided setbacks, horrible relationship setbacks, bad judgment and ruined relationships, missteps on my part setbacks, and major major health setbacks.
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
Well in my journey, I have been a published and awarded print and runway model, and I have been an acclaimed menswear designer in urban fashion.
I have been a production manager and brand owner in the major urban market, I am a working music video director and editor, AB artist merch designer, I am currently a brand owner, and I have been an A&R and a product manager.
I have been on a multi-platinum Grammy award-winning production team, I have been a Project Director in the mental health field, I have been the COO of a not-for-profit organization,
What do you specialize in? In my trade, I specialize in men’s wear design and graphic art and illustration, my passion is music. I guess I’m most known for my past modeling and acting work, my music work, and my community work.
My children and my opportunity to rectify missteps and mistakes that I have made along the way trying to frown and find myself at the expense of then growing and finding themselves at times without me, though I was there. And my 3 grandchildren Iris, Lillian, and Liam.
What sets you apart from others? Everything!! My approach, my respect for what I approach, my respect for the reason I approach it, and my pride in my delivery and outcomes.
