Arriving with the Music Solution, Michael Mosley captivates the heart of all audiences as the premiere jazz rap musician and lyricist of the new millennium. Mr. Mosley is on the innovative cutting edge. No longer will the ear of the people be dissatisfied with the adulterated entertainment served up by today’s music artist impersonators. The multitalented young man has defied all odds to usher in a new fresh flavor, the highest degree of premium entertainment unmatched by his contemporaries. In 1996, at age 15, Michael displayed promising potential as an advanced High School point guard before being injured in a single car accident dashing all basketball prospects. Michael began his comeback by focusing on a way to relate his ordeal to others. He began exploring music and creative expression as a release and a means to overcome his frustrations. Although having no musical training, he began designing instrumental mixes and accompanying, thought provoking lyrics on his laptop and thus developed his own unique eclectic arrangements.
Michael attended Kent State University pursuing a degree in Mass Communication. Chance encounters with other aspiring artist helped consummate his rare style. It wasn’t until enrolling at The University of Akron, in 2001, that Michael’s creative expressions began blossoming into original musical compositions where he employed a variety of instruments, Pianos, Basses, Guitars, Percussions, Strings, Flutes and many other synthesized sounds in his complex musical schemes. Soon after, he acquired a four track mixer to record his first song under his father’s creative supervision. His father, Juan Mosley, then began implementing years of training to form M3 Records, a locally established Independent Record label featuring Michael Mosley as his solo artist. Michael and his father wrote and recorded their first home grown album which they sold around their hometown of Akron, Ohio. After gaining the confidence of the people, the dynamic duo advanced and rerecorded their first album, “No Compromise; Losing Contact, Tracks of My Peers” at EHB studios on which Michael, aka, Mad MaXxx performs all vocals. Michael and Juan continue to market and promote their ideas through what they term as “The Music Solution” with intentions to touch thoughts worldwide.
M3 Records boasts that their songs are all original works, no remixes of other artist’s works. M3 Records specializes in professional audio production as well as marketing graphic and website design. M3 Records provides extraordinary rap, jazz, R&B, pop, rock, and club flavor music renditions without profanity, sexual connotations or violence, silencing the theory that there can be no appealing music without such subject matter. Michael has finished recording his second scintillating CD, “No Compromise, Unconditional Surrender” at EHB studios, to be released in the summer of 2005 while he also writes and composes for his fourth solo album. Michael has also broadcasted his live “Pro Flow Fa-Sho Show” radio show being Ohio’s only rapping DJ at the #1 college radio station in the nation (WZIP 88.1 FM in Akron). His show can now be heard internationally through www.m4radio.com, www.indieartistrado.com and www.newartistradio.net. Michael also graduated in December 2004 with a Media Production major and Pre Law minor. The beat goes on, and the story behind the music continues.
I alone create proferssional digital compositions with any and all sounds & instruments available. Digital music creation and manipulation has been my focus since 1997. My productions stand alone due to originality, creativity, presentation/delivery and dedication.

MaD MaXxx was chosen to participate in this elite publication because his previously published poetry sparks the imagination and presents the reader with a fresh, unique perspective on life. “It was just a spur of the moment decision to enter,” said Mr. MaXxx. “I’m not too surprised though because the people respond to reality.

“My talent is unmatched worldwide,” continued MaD MaXxx with a modest smile. “There is an entire market open that folks like Jigga, Buck, Jada, 50 Cent, Diddy, Kanye and others have barely capitalized on because of content issues.

MaD MaxXx aiming for stardom with WZIP show
Mini-music empire puts Akron student on course
By Denise Grollmus
Beacon Journal staff writer
Ludacris did it, so maybe Mike Mosley can do it, too.
After landing a production job rapping over promos on the late show at Atlanta's Hot 97.5-FM, Chris Bridges, aka Ludacris, worked his way into the elite of hip-hop.
And while Ludacris is sipping on Courvoisier in an SUV stretch limo, Mosley, who uses the moniker MaD MaxXx, is coincidentally planning his own hip-hop takeover through radio's back door.
When MaD MaxXx takes over the airwaves at WZIP (88.1-FM) with his show The Pro Flow Fa Sho Show, although the same tiring playlist of
Christina Aguilera and Nelly continues, it's the heavily vocoded voice, ambient beats, and apocalyptic rhymes of show segues and station IDs that call the listener's attention.
``Radio is a way for people to become familiar with me. I want people to believe in me and get into me. I want to be people's personal friend, that's what being a DJ is all about,'' Mosley said.
Mosley, who's 22 and a media production student at Akron University, landed his DJ job at WZIP, one of the top college radio stations in the country, when people at the station got hold of his homemade CD, No Compromise (available at The Record Exchange in the local section), and started pushing him to join up.
``I didn't think I was gonna be able to do it, just being in a wheelchair and everything. There are so many limitations. I mean, a building might be wheelchair accessible, but that doesn't always mean you can fit through doors and hallways and stuff,'' Mosley said.
In 1996, when he was a starting point guard for Copley High School's varsity basketball team, Mosley was riding in a car with his sister when she took a turn too fast. The accident left Mosley partially paralyzed.
As we talk in his Akron apartment, Mosley sits upright in his wheelchair with the complete use of his upper body, except for his hands.
Mosley and I are the same age. If he could stand up, his slender physique would tower over mine. And as I sit across from him in his homemade studio, listening to him spit quick and witty rhyme and talking about Tupac, his ambition and accomplishments make me feel ages younger.
While many twenty-somethings are down and out, sulking about the hard economic times or their lack of motivation, Mosley, with the help of his father, Juan Mosley, has built his own mini-empire, The Millennium Music Mission and M3 Records, promoting himself as a self-taught musician, producer, rapper, label owner, Web and graphic designer.
``I can't not succeed at what I'm doing,'' Mosley said. ``Music is my life, it's my basketball, and when I get on the court I have to win, and I always dominate.''
Mosley first started writing rhymes to help him deal with his accident. However, music became more than therapy, and Mosley started teaching himself how to create beats on his computer, while honing his skills as an MC. Actually, as multiple MCs.
Though his father, aka NuJam, sometimes acts as the MaD MaxXx hypeman, Mosley has a variety of characters, colored by different digital voicing effects and rhyme styles, taking turns at the mike.
``I have about four different characters, all sort of inhuman and cyber,'' Mosley said.
``It's a way for me to develop parts of my personality that a lot of people can't see. I often feel schizophrenic and I develop characters out of my moods to keep myself, you know, Mike, at a distance. Of all the characters, Mike Mosley is the weakest and the strongest is MaD MaxXx.''
MaD MaxXx is the character through which Mosley broadcasts his radio show. It's helped him build an audience of listeners who call in and chum it up with Mosley's imagination.
``I sometimes wonder if people know I'm in a wheelchair, like how they would feel when they realized that this guy they have in their head may not be real. I'm not worried about it. I try not to get caught up in those issues, I let it challenge me, I use it to boost my drive,'' Mosley said.
Everything Mosley knows about audio production, he's taught himself. When he first started, he had no framework for how to build a beat, how to structure a song with a chorus, where to put different instruments in the final mix, or how to make his rhymes work with the music.
Spending all of his time writing, performing, recording, and mixing his own music, Mosley made a lot of mistakes along the way. However, the mistakes he made weren't always bad, and some of his ways of building songs add a freshness to his music beyond what others are trying to do.
Songs are tripped out with frantic energy, thick layers of keyboards, sound effects, and the fast-paced bounce of his Bone Thugs-influenced style.
And while a lot of the music is seemingly dark, MaD MaxXx is never telling thug tales of guns and violence, but rather speaking from a place of intellect and insight.
It's a quirk that sets him apart. Rather than talking about his woes, like many rappers who enjoy throwing pity parties about being from the streets, Mosley raps about possibilities with a psychedelic sense of imagination.
``I'm not into making money off of degrading women or talking about shooting people. I mean, that would be ridiculous. I can't even pick up a gun!'' said Mosley.
Living a life where he'll always be different, Mosley has learned to embrace his uniqueness. His conviction and commitment even landed him in trouble at WZIP when he tried to stray from the station's format by playing Tupac and Wu-Tang.
``No matter any disagreements I have had with the station, the bottom line is that they've supported me and allowed me to air my voice. They've allowed me to put myself out there,'' Mosley said.
When asked what he would do if he never reached hip-hop stardom, Mosley said, ``I'm not gonna lie, I'm not gonna be happy. But I'm also gonna say that it's going to happen, even if not this year or next. I'll graduate, go to (WENZ) 107.9, and promote that way. This has to happen.''
Hey, it worked for Ludacris.
