A Journey Is Witnessed.. A Legend Is Born
When many fell victim to their environment, Mic Handz used the streets of Brooklyn as a tool that would allow his visions come to fruition. Having witnessed life at its most real moments, whereby witnessing both his friends and family cut down in their prime, Handz chose to parlay his experiences into various creative outlets. As a poet of the streets, and armed with a story that could not be silenced, Handz set out to accomplish his goals.
Not many emcees can boast to have graced the pages of today’s leading publications like Vibe, XXL and The Source, among several others. To boot, Handz has been featured as a model for several major clothing brands, in addition to having launched his own fashion line, Intellect. Prior to the trend of rappers-turned-designers, Handz had already established himself as a force in the fashion game. Starting with the couture fashion house Mochachino, his design input was critical in the brand’s development. Handz also lent a central role in carrying out the Pepsi Clothing team, as their head designer.
At a time when rappers began to look towards additional avenues to broaden their mass appeal, Mic Handz broke ground as a featured actor in the cult-classic Ghetto Dawgz 2. Having been one of the only new artists to acquire multiple national endorsement deals, which include Joe Rodeo Diamond Watches and the ProStudio app for the Apple Store, Handz has lent his both his vocal and writing abilities for commercial spots for Herbal Essence, Burger King, McDonalds, TBS, HBO and Pepsi, to name a few.
Despite all of Handler’s accolades, his passion for music is superseded only by his love of God, who is responsible for bringing all of his accomplishments to life.
Whether singing hooks or blazing 16′s and 24′s with his structurally sound delivery and lyrics, it becomes abundantly clear to listeners that they are part of a spiritual endeavor. Not only is Handz a notable emcee, but he is also a respectable tenor/baritone vocalist. Having recorded new material with Hip-Hop notables such as Mims, Treach (Naughty By Nature), Steele (Smiff-n-Wessun), Sean Price and Rockness Monsta (of Heltah Skeltah), Carl Thomas, Shabaam Sahdeeq, D.V. Alias Khrist, Ma Barker, El da Sensei (Artifacts) and Cappadonna (Wu-Tang Clan), among others, Handz has also worked with an A-list of Platinum selling producers including Fantom (Lil Kim, “Magic Stick”) Freedom Lyles (Micheal Jackson, “In the Closet”, Angie Stone, Carl Thomas and Erica Badu) Self Service (Jay-Z, DMX and Big Pun) and Christopher “Traxx” Rogers ( Pussycat Dolls, “Don’t Cha”). Working towards sitting amongst the ranks of the genre’s greatest emcees of all time such as Biggie, Tupac, Rakim, Nas and LL Cool J, a talented and charismatic new player, Mic Handz has arrived. A journey is witnessed, a legend is born.
