Biography

MIC. HARGROVE, born Michael Hargrove, is a producer/engineer/songwriter/southern hip-hop artist hailing from the rolling hills of Grenada, Mississippi. His chosen stage-name MIC. HARGROVE is a metaphoric play on his biologically given first name in tribute to his deep affection for his craft and ability to effectively handle the microphone. MIC. introduces a new brand of Hip Hop/Southern Hip Hop that combines metaphoric phrases with the struggles of a small southern town. This new sound, unlike the modern Hip Hop artist, is translated through the use of live instrumentation (drums, bass guitar, lead guitar, keys), which is incorporated in MIC.'s live shows. It's an experience his audiences can never forget. Billed as a fresh progressive artist, focused on re-establishing the roots of hip hop music in order to encourage and inspire future generations, the twenty-six year old southern emcee began honing his rhyming talents at the tender age of ten, competing in local talent showcases. Now attending Delta State University, as a sound engineering major in the Delta Music Institute, MIC. strives to educate himself in pursuit of the goals he preaches in his music.

In addition to being an artist and a student, MIC. also finds time to run his own record label, "Ice On Fire Music Group".

To date, MIC. has performed in opening for various mainstream hip-hop/rap acts including Lil Boosie, Webbie, Yo Goitti, Mike Jones, and Thi'sl; most recently touring throughout the United States. He also performed at 2016's SXSW. MIC. has just released his new single "All Day", which is available on all digital distributing sites (iTunes, Amazon, etc.), as well as all digital streaming sites (Spotify, etc). 

MIC. appeals to audiences consisting of teen-agers to young adults who are familiar with the feelings of angst shared by many individuals growing up and living in areas of limited resources. The quality of his recent lyrical offerings can be compared with that of today’s most celebrated acts. “Reporting live from the Sip” MIC. promises to tell the whole truth from all perspectives; “the highest of the highs and the lowest of the lows”.
