Return of Back Yard Hip Hop
There is a shortage of truly unique artistic individuality in the hip hop culture. Amidst redundant melodies and voices, there is an intoxicating aroma in the air that's reminiscent of back yard barbecue and music that touched the soul. South Carolina's very own native born Michael Sargent, known better to hip hop as Big MYKE Da Mayah aka Young Sargent Slaughter, is fuming with the scent of that hickory smoke that hip hop needs. In fact he refers to his style as "Back Yard hip hop", a term used to remind the culture of community and to reflect that essence into their music.
This is what Da Mayah had to say, "Not only do I want the ears of my audience, I want their souls to be in it as well. That's where music comes from. Anybody can write a song but not everyone can make music". Though his form of hip hop is not the fad moving across the airwaves, Big MYKE Da Mayah has chosen to stick with being true to his self and true to what's real. With tracks like Big M.Y.K.E. and Beats and Rhymes, you became ensnared in the lyrical craftsmanship of this artist. As a child Michael was called big mike by his peers, who to this day still affectionately refer to him as such. Known for politicing with the people like he was running for office, Big MYKE has honestly earn the title Da Mayah.
Big MYKE is definitely bringing a new saucy sound to the south, with a flavor that will make the beat of your soul hungry with anticipation for an album release. In the words of Da Mayah, "GT SC U C IT".
