inQUIZitive: Micah

What a year it is proving to be for Birmingham raised talent Micah. So far this year we've seen him drop off 5 impressive tracks which have allowed him to carve out his very own lane in the UK scene, and build the foundations for an action packed 2024 where he looks to take his sound global.

With a distinct sound and style, polished image, high quality content and visuals, as well as a strong team, everything is in place for the 0121 rapper to take his career to the next level. So, with that being said it was only right that we put the spotlight on him, and featured him for the latest edition of inQUIZitive.


In 5 words, describe the city that raised you - and tell us your most distinctive memory growing up there? Good Kid in Gotham City. I have too many memories coming up in Birmingham but my most distinctive one would be meeting Busta Rhymes as a kid.

If you had the opportunity to be guaranteed one ‘Number 1’ record, or access to any artist in the world for a feature - what would you pick & why?, and if you chose the latter, who would the feature be & why? If I had the opportunity to work with any artist, I think it would have to be Pharrell Williams or Tame Impala. I grew up listening to Pharell and Neptunes and was just in awe by his production, melodies and hooks.

You’re only allowed 3 clothing brands/designers in your wardrobe. What are you wearing? I’m wearing Nike, Maharishi & Stone Island.

If you had to pick 3 tracks that summarise your musical influences, what would they be? Busta Rhymes - 'Gimme Some More', Pharrell & The Neptunes - 'Light Ya Ass On Fire' and Justin Timberlake - 'Rock Your Body'

You’ve been booked for Glastonbury, Coachellla & Rolling Loud, but they all fall on the same day. You can only pick one, which booking are you taking? Only because it’s home, I’m saying Glastonbury.

Tell us about one career highlight that you’re proud of, and why? A lot of people don’t know because I don’t tend to showcase it for obvious reasons, but being in studio with people that are already successful within the industry is something I’m proud of because I learn a lot from them.

How old were you when you discovered your creative ability, and when did you decide to pursue a career in music? As far as I can remember, you’re talking from the ages of 6-7 years old. I would always write raps and show my Mom and people in school. I felt comfortable showing my Mom the raps I’d wrote with swears in because it was her that introduced me to rap music. She would always play rap music in the car with me and my brother dropping us to school. She introduced me to rap artists like Shyne, Scarface, N.W.A, Snoop Dogg & Dr. Dre. My older cousin Kiefer was a music producer and always had new beats when I would go to his house and would allow me and my cousins to rap over them. We was making music on garageband from young but never actually taking it serious. His younger brother Tien introduced me to new age rap at the time - which would have been artists like Nipsey Hussle, Dolla, Ya Boy & The Game. I started taking music seriously at the age of 19.

It’s been an exciting year so far with 5 releases under your belt - if you had to pick a track to shut down a show, what track are you going for? Definitely ‘Arrr Yeah’!

Your sound and style is incredibly unique, and very much in it's own lane - what would you describe your style as, and what artists inspire you to push the boundaries the way you do? Because I listen to a wide range of music, like Pop, R&B, Drum & Bass, Hip-Hop, it’s really hard for me to pick an artist. I feel like i just took inspiration from all genres and just naturally was myself when in the booth. I really studied this music ting from a young age.

Finally, what can we expect from Micah in the next 12 months - perhaps a project, more singles, international bookings. What’s on the to do list for 2024? More wavey music!
