What is so amazing about Mikey Smit is how he puts his heart and soul into everything he does. His talent has caught the attention of so many in the industry to the point where video directors are asking to work with him. “This EP, for me, is a rebirth because I haven’t seen a reaction like this in a while. When I put it out, I wasn’t expecting a reaction like I have seen. People are always telling me, ‘wow, you are really talented and these fans need to see you’. So, I just keep working,” said the rapper. One of his favorite aspects of his career is witnessing the positive reactions firsthand.

“As an artist, you go into music and say what you feel. It’s all in your artistry- it’s who you are as a person,” said Smit. “I truly wasn’t expecting those kind of numbers. The EP has some of my highest viewed videos to date.”
So, what can fans expect from the follow-up project? Smit tells us exclusively that people can look forward to that same energy with a sprinkle of a different flair. “I grow every time I put out a project, so I’m adding that growth to the next project. I want to level up each time,” said the rapper. Smit has carefully selected each song for his next project, as it truly is a piece of art. Music, for Smit, is a lifelong journey, and he plans to tell the story of this through his next project. “There’s not a day that goes by when I’m not working. I love having that creative control. As an artist, you have your ideas in your head. I love collaborating because you’ve got two minds that are meshing with each other. When both artists bring both of their worlds together… that’s the best,” said the rapper. Fans, take it from us… you won’t want to miss this!
