Mike Ballz – The World According To Ballz (must-listen mixtape)

January 17th, 2012 by | Album/Mixtape/EP Review, Hip-Hop/Rap |

Before you ignore this post because of his artist name, Mike Ballz is actually a legit artist who has underrated production with solid flow and quality features in his latest project, The World According to Ballz (DOWNLOAD). The Boston rapper has a unique style and isn’t your typical white rapper.

Below stream and download The World According to Ballz. My favorites are “One Man” featuring MuZ, “Happiness” featuring Sid Sriram, “The Road” featuring Jordan Brown, and “Never Stop” featuring MuZ.

Mike Ballz – Back to the Circus (Prod. by J.Dilla)

Great beat, and as always, commanding flow from Mike Ballz. It’s always tough to come off of a track as great and successful as “One Man,” but Mike pulls it off. With a track that may very well be better than his debut single. Paired with a classic beat from J.Dilla (pictured above), this ones quickly becoming a favorite.

Introducing Mike Ballz

September 20th, 2011 by | Hip-Hop/Rap |
Newcomer to the rap game Mike Ballz comes in hard on his own production. While Mike is new to the hip-hop game, he is by no means new to music, he started rapping during middle school as a joke and then quickly realized that he was good at it. With his background in musical instruments, it was easy for him to pick up on the production side, and with his skills, he produced, wrote, and sang this track.
Starting off with smooth piano Mike takes over the track at around :10 seconds with commanding flow. Muz of the group Crossover Kidz follows with an impressive verse. With a tight chorus and hook to bring the whole track together, sung by Mike.

Be on the lookout for Mike’s EP dropping in the next couple weeks, with a mixtape slated for release at the end of October and the music video for this track coming sometime around the beginning of October. Be sure to check in on Before the Bigs to keep you updated on Mike’s work.
