Submission Pick: MIKE INCITE (Castro Valley, CA) – Microphone /// UndergroundHipHopBLOG.comPosted: December 12, 2012
Michael Knight A.K.A. Mike Incite is a 20 year old brought up in the East Bay Area of California. Incite was originally a writer of books and short stories (or at least he has many works in progress) but it wasn’t until a little over a year ago that he discovered he had a talent for rap. Born and raised on underground hip hop he had always been interested in rhyming on stage, and making music that made you think. His influences are Atmosphere, Murs, Evidence, POS, Royce Da 5’9″, Reks, Grouch, Immortal Technique, Diabolic, Grieves, Blue Scholars and just about every other rapper out there who hasn’t gotten the recognition he deserves. He describes himself as a hopeless romantic who enjoys rapping about personal relations and intense situations. So even through his music, he still has the ability to tell the stories that he wants to write in books. His first mix tape will drop in the beginning of 2013, and it is titled “Me, Myself, and My Ego.” He hopes to make music for as long as he can afford the lifestyle, and most importantly create a larger community of underground hip hop fans and artists.
