Mighty Man

Mighty Man

You'd better watch out, cos Mighty Man is about, and this MC certainly has something to shout about. Find out below about this artist who draws influences from Jamaica and New York.

LISTEN TO MIGHTYMAN AUDIO CLIPS VIA THE TOP RIGHT-HAND LINKS.

Mighty Man is a versatile MC.  He's been playing around on the mic since the age of 10 when as a kid he spent time back in his mother's homeland of Jamaica.  There he was influenced to chat.  He came back home to the UK and continued till the age of 13.  He returned to mic ten years later, freestyling at numerous cyphers around his hometown, Reading.

When he returned to Jamaica he was so impressed with the rawness of the MCing there that he had to incorporate it with his own ferocious style.  Mighty Man travels from the UK to New York on regular basis and it was the vibe there that really inspired him to take his music more seriously.

Since his first taste of that vibe back in the early millennium he has written numerous of tracks and started performances:

Live:

Hosting the Purple Turtle hip hop nights alongside Cypher 6, another local Hip hop band

Magic Eye Promotion: Hosting the Vocal Rooms, giving local talent the opportunity to rhyme at a local venue once a month.  Much of the material was televised.

Supported Virgo (another Magic Eye artist) when Virgo was hosting the Hip Hop Shop.

Yes about time we had a positive rapper hit the street. Something proper not all da negative but some positive. Real ood

Alan.B
Awesome sound! Will be looking forward to the album!

Johnny Royale
Must check out his tunes, he's always been a top security geezer at the AD; courteous and has a good line in banter without ever losing that air of menace that stops people messing him around. If he rhymes like he bounces, he's worth checking out.

Paul
Mightyman is a great MC live I have seen him supporting Virgo @ the Plug and PLay Club and Hip Hop shop at the MaltHouse A good MC & Iam very impressed with the attached tracks

Andre.F
At last positive messages and on point lyrical content!! British MTV and Radio Stations need more Artists like MightyMan to help show the youth and adults alike of today that there is more to Rap music than bling,fast cars,money,violence and big booty girls in the videos!!!

Robert
Great stuff. Current Affairs is a particularly good track, the lyrics very intelligent and especially poignant after what happened in London yesterday.
