Mike DeVoe is an 18 year old up and coming rapper with a new mixtape coming out at the end of the month called Overtime! Check out this interview we did with him and listen to his music at the end of this post.
First off, tell us a little about yourself – Where are you from? When did you start rapping?
I am from Greeley, Pennsylvania!
I started rapping in 6th grade
In 6th grade me and friends would get together at a lunch table and have rap battles, usually nobody would take them serious, but my brother was in a band at the time and had all the recording equipment and one day I came home from school, all the equipment was set up, I messed around with it and I’ve been making music ever since!
What really got you into music? Where do you get your inspiration from?
My inspiration comes from my past events, everything that I have been through and seen, I put it on all my records, everything I release has a story behind it.
Anyone you look up to?
I look up to all the artists that came from nothing, Machine gun Kelly is the biggest inspiration.
A lot of people say I sound like a mixture of Mac Miller, logic And MGK.
“Keep up the work, and it will come” Scott Storch said that to me.
Out of all your songs, what are your favorites?
I would love to tour with Sammy Adams, Drake, and logic!
Yes, it is an EP and it is called “Overtime”, I put a lot of work into this, the songs “Good, Good, Bad” Feat. Hi-Rez and “Running” are my favorites! It is coming out at the end of this month, free download!
I want them to know that you can reach your dreams no matter how crazy they are, and my goal is to prove that dreams can come true, I love my fans, they really are going to change my life and I can’t thank them enough!
My favorite thing about music is that I can put all my emotion on a record and people can connect, it’s the best feeling.
Thanks for the interview Mike!
