Strafe - Set It Off - 12" Vinyl
Mykestro, the younger brother of producer-extraordinaire DJ Battlecat, is ready to bring his brand of "reality raps" to the forefront. Born and raised throughout Los Angeles' various inner city neighborhoods, Mykestro not only faced the everyday challenges of violence and adversity as a man, but also had to overcome being a rapper that didn't fit into the stereotypical lowriders & bandanas persona associated with the West Coast. His determination to succeed musically while staying true to his own style has led to a reputation as being one of the most lyrical artists to ever come from Los Angeles.
The acclaim he's received from the release of his 2005 Mix tape "Quality Over Quantity," along with a 12" single released on ABB Records and a host of features and shows has made the 26-year-old one of the West Coast's most potent up and coming threats. Notable for holding his own alongside any artist, he is well respected by both new and veteran artists alike and his skill as an MC is always the topic of discussion in every article or conversation he's mentioned in.
