Here is an excerpt from the interview Michael had with TRUE mag:

“Music is my life. This is all I know and all I have known my whole life. I feel a deep connection not only with the raps I write or the music I Create but also with music in general. I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for the music my grandfather created, the history and the legacy he left behind. Knowing this I take my music seriously. It means so much more to me than anything else. I want to make history with my music just like my Grandfather. Growing up seeing how people loved my grandfather for his music made me want that same kind of love. I know the impact music can have on the masses and on history.”

Ray Lopez, the photographer for the session has already established a successful career working with advanced musicians for years:

“I’ve traveled the world and nation creating images and bringing visions to life. I have worked with music legends such as Bone Thugs n Harmony ,Teddy Riley, and Jazze Pha , as well as up and coming artist. Coming from a strong music background I decided to combine the two and see what would happen, the results were far greater than I expected. I dont take pictures I make them, I bring what I see to the surface for all to see. I can only be as good as the people I’m taking photographs of.”
