We have just sat down to do an exclusive interview with Mike Maro from London where he is reaching great success with his unique style and flow. His latest single has already reached more than 15,000 Video Views on YouTube and it is growing every day. Also there is a lot of talk going around in USA about Mike Maro.
Who are your influences in the game and in your personal life?
2pac, MJ, Jay Z, Drake, Kendrick, J Cole... In my personal life, my mother.
If you could compare yourself to an already established artist, who would that be and why?
J Cole – the simple fact being he is in a lane of his own entirely. Very down to earth at the same time edgy. I find a lot of similarities in his thought patterns in the way I create music.
What do you think your listeners will get out of your music?
Someone who is brutally honest and who gives it a 1000 per cent with every emotion behind each song.
What were you thinking about when your songs are developed? Explain your process.
I let the ideas come to me. I basically let the beat dictate the vibe and then it becomes easier for me to express the feeling of the song.
What made you want to get into the business?
Pure passion for music and the love of entertaining.
What is the most difficult thing you’ve had to endure in life?
What do you hope to do with your music?
Shift the culture, break down barriers and be untouchable.
Are there any questions that you were expecting that I didn’t ask and want to answer?
Not really ha, spot on!
Do you have your own songs in your favourite playlist?
Not yet but I am working on it for sure.
