“Mic L. Angelo” (a.k.a. “Mic Nice” “Hollywood Black” or the “Picture Perfect Poet”) is a Nigerian-American Hip-Hop artist. Inspired by the impact of the creative works of the Italian Renaissance era, Mic L. Angelo uses his name as a metaphor for the type of creativity he strives to apply to his music and other creative works.
Mic’s love for music began when he was a young child living in Corpus Christi, Texas, listening to music from EMPD, Geto Boys, Rakim, and other acts from Hip-Hop’s “golden age”. The love for music transcended regions as Mic moved to Providence, Rhode Island and began his career as a freestyle battle rapper in his early teens. Mic spent his remaining teenage years battling in hip-hop cyphers and performing in shows all over the Ocean State.
Mic L. Angelo moved once more to Boston, Massachusetts (the place he now calls home) to attend college at Northeastern University. Mic spent his college night-life performing on various mix-tapes and Hip-Hop shows. He was able to cultivate his growing fan base by creating music with greater sensibility to his life experiences and the world around him. Now in his post-college life, Mic L. Angelo’s maturity as a man is fully expressed through his music with confidence and composure.
