“been in love with drugs since I was just a pup”
It was only right that I get an interview with the young goat, Mykey Lo. The artist first caught my attention when I heard his extremely fire track titled, “Outta Town” on SoundCloud. I was music surfing on SoundCloud one day when I was blessed by the SoundCloud gods to hear the track. “Outta Town” was on repeat for weeks and I had to plug it into rotation by adding the cut to the Prescribed Music Vol. 5 created playlist, which is on the website. Honestly, go listen to “Outta Town” right now and I bet you hop on the Mykey Lo bandwagon immediately. Better yet, go watch the visuals for the music video on the blog or on YouTube.
Mykey Lo is definitely one of my favorite young, upcoming artists in the game right now. I believe that the artist has passion to better his craft and as a fan of his primary work, I am only excited for what the future holds with forthcoming releases. Examples such as “Outta Town” will excite any fan of his ability to create music as an artist. Other tracks such as “Grass” is another example of Mykey Lo’s consistent work ethic and production to construct dope music for his fans. As aforementioned in this post, if you don’t know too much about Mykey Lo then make sure to check out the visuals to his music video, “Grass”. The record, “Grass” was another track that confirmed my belief that Mykey Lo was the truth within the industry. Additionally, with the release of the music video, the track illustrated the fact that Mykey Lo was ready to take over the game and hit the game winner.
Everything stated so far, I am ready and excited to hear more releases from Mykey Lo. He has a relatively short discography, yet all of his tracks are fire. 2017 is only days away and Mykey Lo has already started to elucidate momentum with weekly releases heading into the New Year. All in all, the Prescribed Music family is happy to be a part of Mykey Lo’s movement and we hope that our fans get an opportunity to see what Mykey Lo is about and understand why we think that he has a bright future to be a standout within the league. Definitely keep him on your radar or you’ll miss out on amazing music for 2017.
Ultimately, I am excited for Mykey Lo’s evolution as an artist, because he is truly talented, as he has created his own lane in order to introduce himself to the game. Again, I do hope that the Prescribed Music community and others get a chance to read this post, read the interview below, check out his music, and become fans of the movement as well. Lastly, make sure to check out Mykey Lo updates on the website at www.drinkaudio.com and listen to our favorite tracks from the artist as well.
