Rising Hip-Hop artist Mickey Factz has found a home at Battery Records, the label revealed to AllHipHop.com today (May 13th).
After releasing six mixtapes independently and landing spots in advertising campaigns with Honda, the 24-year-old New Yorker signed with Battery because of the label’s “creative vision.”
“My career as an artist has been a grand journey up to this point for my team GFCnewyork, and myself,“ Mickey Factz told AllHipHop.com. “Battery is the greatest compromise as they understand my vision and where we will be taking it. I’m glad to welcome them as a part of my team and The Black Apple experience. Truthfully, let the games begin.”
Mickey Factz was one of the most sought after unsigned artists before inking his deal with Battery.
According to Neil Levine, GM and Senior Vice President of Battery Records, Mickey Factz is a complete artist.
“He’s really put the work in to be a real star and Battery is very pleased to welcome him as our newest signing,” Neil Levine said of Factz’ independent hustle.
Mickey Factz left NYU Law School in order to pursue his career as a rapper.
