MIC BOOGIE BIO
Let me introduce you to Michael \"Mic Boogie\" Lamourie. He was born and raised in the blue collar city of Oshawa, 30 min. east of Toronto, Canada. Growing up in the \"Shawa\", Mike was surrounded by hockey, rock music, General Motors and don\'t forget lots of beer & smoke. Early in elementary school, however, it was evident to a young Michael Bruce Lamourie that he was in love with Hip Hop music. After hearing groups like Grand Master Flash & the Furious Five, the Boogie Boys, Run DMC and a list too long to mention, his ear was stuck to the streets. As the culture grew so did Mike’s interest in how the music was made and what it took to rock the mic. Between playing high school football and basketball he made time to surround himself with other local MC\'s and producers interested in making Hip Hop music. After learning production from local DJ, Rodney \"Rod C\" Woodman, he decided it was time to grab a pen & pad and let the rhymes flow. While spitting rhymes at local parties and freestyle sessions he hooked up with, Nigel \"N.I.Gel\" Williams (Pocket Dweller front man) and started a rap group named, \"SRL\" (Suburban Rap Lords). The two began performing at local talent shows and contests, but wanting to define himself as a soloist Mike parted ways with \"SRL\" and began to search his own musical path and his lyrical genius soon followed. Curiosity turned into a hobby a hobby into a passion. That passion now brings you the raw MC & Production styles of, Mic Boogie. Combining musical roots that stem from the rock sounds of the late 60\'s & 70\'s with the golden era of Hip Hop, the 80\'s. Boogie\'s laid back flow will for sure have you eager for more. A smooth flowing MC style accompanied by drums that vibrate the concrete will have you reminiscing of nothing more then good old fashioned Hip Hop music. Mic knows no bounds lyrically as he speaks on subject matter ranging from current political issues to spitting party rhymes to keep the crowd hype.
