Mikey Polo, born Kevin Michael Price II, is a hot new trapper out of Atlanta and the DMV who has a very special sound that leaves you wondering how he’s not blown up on the mainstream stage yet. His emo aesthetic all plays into his unique sound that he calls “emo-trap” and it has built him a considerable following on his social media platforms. The new lane he’s created has allowed him to be able to express his lyrics using diverse styles and melodic tunes not heard much elsewhere in the current rap game.

The New York based artist has been dominating the trap genre with his catchy hooks and content filled lyrics and he is said to have a new project in the works. We recently were able to catch up with the rising star and ask him a couple questions regarding his life and the music that surrounds it.
