"Mic Write Has One Of 2016's Best Protest Records With "ONUS Chain""

"The six-song record and the film brilliantly capture blackness at its most bleak, joyful and rebellious, all at once." - Okayplayer

"Mic Write on Police Brutality, Gentrification, and Misconceptions of Detroit"

"His latest album, O.N.U.S. Chain, is his best work yet, a stirring EP that tackles police brutality, racial injustice, and the transformation of his hometown. Sad, desperate, joyful and proud, the record and its accompanying short film cycle through a wide range of emotions, from elation to frustration to anger" - Bandcamp Daily

"The Best Detroit Albums Of 2016"

"Mic Write is one of the best writers in the game. Period....few spoke with the urgency, clarity, and humanity of Mic Write on ONUS Chain. His is a voice we needed in 2016, and it’s a voice we desperately want in 2017." - Assemble Sound

"Best of 2016 entertainment: Iggy Pop, 'La La Land,' Danny Brown, GNR"

"O.N.U.S. Chain" is a taut, emotive collection that rallies like-minded individuals to maintain sense of self despite systemic racism seeping its way into law enforcement, education and housing." - Detroit Free Press

"BEWARE’s Block: Settling In"

"Via a collage of goosebumps-giving cuts from his slept-on Onus Chain EP, Mic Write manages to drive home his views on standing up when people try to keep you down, in a way that helps us get on his level.

For over ten minutes, the Detroit MC delivers a mix of interwoven, high-end, conceptual videos that are equally powerful as his honest delivery and never lose the viewer, thanks to the constant mix of vocal and visual intensity." - BEWARE's Block

"PLAYING DETROIT: Mic Write- "blak/joi/""

"Emcee, poet, educator, and Detroit visionary, Chace “Mic Write” Morris is unstoppable. Mic Write’s reputation as a renaissance man pales in comparison to the weight of his message and unconstrained fervor. As a slam poetry champion, Kresge literary arts recipient and a main player in the progressive hip-hop collaboration Cold Man Young, Write has tapped into the collective social conscious, delivering striking commentary on race, community, and injustice with an impervious directness by means of jaw-dropping scholarly rhyme schemes paired with beats suitable for both grinding or marching, respectively."

- Jerilyn Jordan - Audiofemme

"BEWARE'S BLOCK: Urgent Business"

"Turn on Mic Write’s advanced knocker “Celibate” and you’ll find yourself going 100 mph, whether you’re flying down I-75 or kicked back on your front porch. The upstart Detroit rapper has a good sense of flow, coasting over the hyperactive future funk with ease."

- Beware - UPROXX

"Album Of The Week: #CODEGREEN by Mic Write"

"If you didn’t know who the Detroit native was, his unassuming demeanor wouldn’t have necessarily indicated that he was about to get on stage and kill it. However, that’s exactly what he did."

- Gus Navarro - BonusCut.com

"Detroit emcee Mic Write on race, gentrification, and making you dance"

"[Mic Write] used the platform from H.O.M.E.S to keep developing his own voice: a brilliant, politicized, self-assured artist who’s also willing to wade into his own weariness and vulnerability"

- Kate Wells - NPR/Michigan Radio

"Emcee, poet, educator, and Detroit visionary, Chace 'Mic Write' Morris is unstoppable. Mic Write’s reputation as a renaissance man pales in comparison to the weight of his message and unconstrained fervor"

- Jerrilyn Jordan, Audiofemme

Mic Write is as much poet as he is emcee, threading the two worlds he's thrived in to write socially-immediate music that builds strength without weighing heavy. He is mastering his particular alchemy of blending smart, layered, urgent rhymes with pulsing beats & creating bangers that make you bounce on the 1st play, think on the 2nd, and activate on the 3rd.

He is prepping to release an audio/visual project entitled "The ONUS Chain"- a trilogy of visuals & accompanying EP that navigate police brutality, the traumatic fatigue of waiting for change & what independence from the oppression potentially looks like. 

Mic has witnessed his gentrification dissect his city & violence against blacks haunt his body; in response he is exploring what it means to be as dangerous as being black/from Detroit would suggest. Can it be used as a response to fight back? Passion has always been integral to his work, but its becoming more pointed & honed- trading the soapbox for the front porch.
