PEACEWORLD, Big L Mixtape, Richard Sherman, LSD, Daft Punk and Black Keys jokes… I stopped by to see my good friends at RadcastPA and they didn’t leave a single stone unturned. We even talked about my chronic lung condition and I shared an impromptu, a’capella performance of the unreleased song, “Problems”.
Can’t believe it’s been 3 years already. Peep this Mic Stew x French Street Films classic!
This morning, as I routinely checked Facebook, I stumbled across countless troubling articles in my news feed. Last night a world-class NFL Cornerback ended themost important game of his entire life with an interception. Not 2 minutes after winning a brutally physical football game, securing a seat in the Superbowl, the Seahawks player aggressively addressed his opponents, the news anchor, and the world with a firm affirmation of his greatness in an adrenaline-charged post-game interview. The man had just accomplished what few people will ever even dream of accomplishing. What I encountered this morning was a series of articles highlighting racist Americans who swarmed to twitter in distaste of his enthusiastic display. They called him a thug, a n*gger, an animal, and nearly every racial slur they could conjure with their narrow minds. My Martin Luther King day was overshadowed by our country’s STILL extremely bigoted character. I will never forget the day Martin Luther King met Richard Sherman.

“Philly MC Mic Stew is more than a rapper, he’s a passionate lyricist with talent well beyond his years. His latest offering The Big L Mixtape: Hello My Name is Michael Stewart is equal parts homage to a late hip-hop legend and Stew showcasing his undeniable skills.” – Katrina Murray; XPN: The Key

I had just finished travelling the country as the National Red Bull EmSee Champion and my debut album PEACEWORLD was ready for release.

It has been a long, fun year getting to know the guys at XPN. Our introduction came courtesy of our mutual friend, and MC extraordinaire, Reef the Lost Cauze back in March 2013. They were one of the first media outlets to cover the music video for “I’m Not From Brooklyn”. From there, they consistently endorsed my events from my PEACEWORLD album release at Villa (Philadelphia) in April to my co-headline gig with Cee Knowledge at concerts in the park courtesy of Philly Weekly in September. They even invited me on air to share a half hour exclusive live performance of PEACEWORLD on their station 88.5fm WXPN (available for stream/download here). To cap off a long, fruitful year, one of their senior writer/directors listed me as one of their top 5 Music Discoveries of 2013. It’s been an honor!
Check out the first offering from Mic Stewart’s upcoming mixtape titled HELLO My Name Is Michael Stewart: The Big L Mixtape. The short release is inspired by an interview where Big L was wearing a shirt with Mic Stew’s name on it. Paying homage to the legend was inevitable after discovering this gem:
