Can’t tell from staring at his back but many indie music fans are asking the same question! Mike Petro, aka meLLo, is an urban musician from Chicago that one person labeled as “the (un)rapper who is walking down the path of creativity that is less traveled by most in the mainstream hip hop scene”. Mike showcased his trend setting songwriting, production, and performance talents in his recent debut Who The F**k Is Mike Petro? mixtape.
The buzz to follow gave birth to the #WTFIMP? Tour 2012 presented by Miller Street Studios and sponsored by Gowhere Hip Hop. The one of a kind performance that meLLo puts on includes hard spittin’ raps over hip hop/dubstep medleys, real time production using MPC pads, and an occasional live band to bring life to the set. Mike Petro lights up the stage joined by DJ Brandon Joseph, Cosmo Barron on drums, Gerard K on the strings, and hosted by DJ Averi Minor (Power 92/Shade 45). The tour has officially launched and dates can be kept up with on his music (outer)space at meLLoMikePetro.com!
