“You don’t know me like you think you know me.”

When you take your first look at Mike Voss, you probably won’t guess that he’s an accomplished hip-hop artist. His tall, thin frame and clean cut, stylish appearance scream “model” or “actor” much louder than “rapper”, which wouldn’t be wrong as he’s delved into both of those fields as well; but Mike Voss’ first love is unquestionably hip-hop. He didn’t make his name through the internet, with payola-funded cosigns from so-called “gatekeepers” and “tastemakers”, but authentically from the muscle, unlike most of his modern rap contemporaries. He made it by defeating opponent after opponent in rap battles everywhere from Philadelphia street corners to 106 & Park on BET. He made it through an explosive live show, sharing stages with artists ranging from the legendary Ghostface Killah to the late, great Mac Miller. Most importantly, he made it by constantly evolving with each project in his catalog, refusing to stop leveling up. His work has been featured in prominent outlets like The Source, 2DopeBoyz, Hip Hop Since 1987 and many more.

Voss’ music combines modern (but never generic) production with quotable lyrics that are smart without being pretentious, and hooks that will stay in your head indefinitely after you hear them. An artist who keeps their sound relevant while still remaining true to their craft is rarer these days than ever before, and Mike Voss is a needle in the proverbial haystack of rappers coming out of nowhere daily.

After dropping his sophomore album Lost & Crowned on all streaming platforms in 2018, the rapper released 4 more singles before the year’s end, all with different, but equally well-executed sounds. His work ethic hasn’t slowed down since, dropping the 5-track Collusion EP in May 2019, entirely produced the boundary-pushing Army of the 12 Monkeys, including a feature from Viceland’s Fat Tony. Mike Voss shows no signs of stopping his ongoing progression, with his third album slated to drop before the end of the year.
