I'm a conscious rapper who likes to inspire and motivate people through music. Known as the hip-hop yogi, I try to incorporate teachings of yoga philosophy and mindfulness in my raps as oppose to a religious aspect. A little bit of gangsta mixed with a little guru, high energy and always up-lifting.

What to Expect
A conscious rapper who's lyrics will make you say "Whoa!" With a fun and funky alter ego that loves to boogie. Mikey Budd isn't afraid to have fun, but he's also not afraid to speak his mind about things closest to him and issues he cares about. His shows are energetic and engaging getting people to dance and move, Mikey even includes his own dance routine as part of the performance. 420 friendly performer for appropriate occasions.
Michael Budd-Huertas, better known as Mikey Budd, was born & raised in Newark, New Jersey to an Irish/Italian father & Puerto Rican mother. Budd began writing poetry and lyrics at the age of 8 and often performed for school showcases and for friends and family. In 2014, he worked with producer DJ Milkman and released his first mixtape "Knowledge Fruit" which gave him some recognition as a songwriter and rapper. At the same age, he started perceiving life more spiritually, beginning a journey of meditation and yoga. This perspective is now the base of his music inspiration, writing and rapping to promote more consciousness, health and self love. Although his lyrics about yoga practice and meditation are tasteful, Mikey has also put an edge on his lyrics to challenge many of today's social and political issues.
