Them drops might hit me but the wet won’t take
Its like, these Romans want martyrs to bleed
But the more that we see makes it harder to grieve

number one rule is die for the hustle
but kings won’t live for the God in our struggle
to turn gold from dust of the concrete rubble

Mikey D featuring Timid – “Chosen One”

September 24, 2009 on 5:39 am | In Press Releases | 1 Comment

Mikey D featuring Timid – “Chosen One”
DOWNLOAD: Clean | Dirty

Queens New York Hip Hop Icon Mikey D returns with “Chosen One”, a message to the world and to self that he is back. Mikey D’s credentials are solidified. Hip Hop knows the former Reality Records and Sleeping Bag Records artist, the young gunner of the late producer Paul C, the New Music Seminar Battle Champion, the controversial battle and defeat of Melle Mel, the one Chosen to take the front of acclaimed group Main Source after the departure of Large Professor. Good things come to those who wait. Mikey D the Chosen One waits no more.

About Mikey D

Born in Queens, New York as Michael Anthony Deering.

At an early age, Mikey started out on the park jam circuit with the Clientele Brothers. MC’s Will Seville, Eddie O’ Jay along with Mean Gene were considered among the best at displaying real rhyme skills as a group similar to the Cold Crush Brothers and The Force MC’s (later renamed The Force MD’s). As a group, the Clientele Brothers were looking for the next hot MC – enter Playboy Mikey D. With Mikey, the group had the last ingredient and they definitely took the Queens park jam scene to the next level.

As Hip Hop phenomena grew in the mid 1980’s, the time came for a record deal. In 1985, Mikey D along with the Symbolic Three singed to Reality Records. With Producers Ray (Professor KB) Romain, Dr. Rhythm and Dr. Shock, songs like ‘No Show’ (the answer to Doug E Fresh and Slick Rick’s ‘The Show’), along with ‘Treacherous’ took underground radio by surprise. In 1986, Mikey D (and DJ Johnnie Quest) signed with Public Records and put out classics Like ‘Dawn,’ ‘My Telephone,’ and ‘Bust A Rhyme’. In 1987 he hit the industry with ‘I Get Rough’ (B side ‘Go For it’) with legendary producer Paul C.

In 1988, Mikey’s career really got hot when he signed to Sleeping Bag Records. The record company was so enthused by the Queens battle legend’s reputation; they entered him into the New Music Seminar. After battling several known and unknown rappers round by round he was victorious and proclaimed the best MC in the world (as he predicted in 1987’s ‘I Get Rough’). Later that year, he released ‘Out Of Control’ and the wicked ‘Comin’ In The House’.

In 1994 Mikey D was enlisted by the groundbreaking Main Source to replace their lead MC Large Professor. Mikey (along with K-Cut and Sir Scratch) hit the studio and recorded the sequel to ‘Breaking Atoms’ entitled “F*ck What You Think”. Although another historic album was birthed, it was not released due to infighting between the record label and group management. After all of the chaos he had been through, the legendary rapper took a step back from the music he loved so much to focus on family and other pressing issues.
