Mike Petro is set to release his first ever solo project and wants to celebrate at this grand concert with all of his followers! His debut mixtape has been dubbed Who The F**k Is Mike Petro? A Million Man Mindstate as he officially enters the urban music scene. It’s been a long journey for him ever since signing a record deal in Los Angeles with Michael Concepcion’s Grand Jury Entertainment back in 2008. Much has changed from that time as he used to be one-half of the underground Chicago rap duo, known as The Womb. The group broke up shortly after inking a deal, and it actually turned out to benefit Mike as he finally launched a path to his own career. In 2009, his raw talent was noticed by Miller Street Studios and within a year had earned himself a sponsorship to complete his master recordings.
This #WTFIMP? tape has been long delayed simply because he didn’t wanna publish his debut release without having something stronger to follow up with. He’s got two originally produced albums on deck; a hip hop EP self-titled as meLLo as well as a dubstep EP which is yet to be named. Fans will get a preview of both of these projects during his performance at the debut release party. #WTFIMP? touches on all sub-genres of urban music ranging from wild raps, to party tracks, and even touches on meaningful hip hop ballads. Petro has been searching to define his diverse character of which many have come to know as meLLo. “Follow Me” (feat. Jaron Strom) has received the greatest love and feedback from the fans but there is almost a track for every hip hop head on #WTFIMP?.
December 4th, 2011 marks the launch of Mike Petro’s road to becoming a solo urban artist. He’s going to be joined on stage with DJ Brandon Joseph and will even have a surprise group of musicians to play some background melodies in the set. Fans will be able to vote on a song for him to rap over leading up to the event. The song with the most votes will appear in the live 15 minute set that Petro is prepared to amaze with. Come out to Reggies Rock Club not only to support the launch of his career, but also to be apart of the wildest indie concert of the year!
Who The F**k Is Mike Petro? A Million Man Mindstate has been heard on Shade 45, Gowhere Hip Hop, Def Sounds, and more!
