You can expect a powerhouse lyrical performance that will draw a standing ovation most times. From Poetic pieces such as "Black Butterflies" a piece dedicated to the upliftment of women, to songs like "One Wife" that inspire couples to remain monogamous in their relationships, this performance is what helps to restore respect back to Hip Hop artists and the true appreciation of what a lyricist is supposed to do. The music is inspiring, uplifting, clean, no cussing, powerful and authentic. What HipHop is supposed to be!
Michael X is a music artist with a mission. He’s dedicated to empowering listeners with a message of hope, change, and revolution. Raised between Los Angeles, Cincinnati, and Atlanta, Michael knew at just 15 that Hip Hop was one of his passions. As a Muslim follower of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, he is focused on fulfilling his purpose and using his talents to aid in his spiritual leader’s efforts.
“Minister Louis Farrakhan loves the Hip Hop generation and wants to see us step into our great roles,” says Michael. “He has asked the cultural community to stand up and put a revolutionary thinking into the minds of the people.”
