The most attractive Mike Stud quotes that are life-changing and eye-opening
Young, wild, and free, my whole life ahead of me. So I'm drinking heavily, steadily making memories.
My music is basically all about witty punchlines and lyric progression that is aimed to make you laugh or say "Woah."
To be honest, I was unaware of the huge frat-rap scene that was taking over the blogosphere until I found myself right in the middle of it. But there are really a ton of talented dudes out there doing this, and I'm just having a great time making music and being a part of it all.

The production companies and some of the networks reached out as well.

My music started out as a complete joke, so really all I was doing was going for witty punchlines to make all of my buddies laugh.
A lot of these "reality shows" do a lot of producing scenes and producing things and drama and all that but we did the deal contingent that we wouldn't do that.
This show ["This Is Mike Stud"] will have a ton of layers that people who aren't necessarily my demographic will actually really appreciate...I'm really proud.
I'm not big on trying to label it [my rap] or trying to prove people otherwise.
I'm just making records that I like and that I wanna make. I'm just making records that relate to me and that relate to my life. If you listen to what I'm saying I'm not talking about anything that isn't my life. I take pride in having truthful lyrics.
The things I'm saying in my records are always me.
I write about things in my life that I'm experiencing. When you hear the personal meaningful records that aren't about partying, they stem from my life.
I didn't have musical upbringing. I never listened to music growing up, thinking "I want to make my own music". I just listened to music for pleasure.
Songs will always become a story in some way.
I think it's my strongpoint as a writer musically. I don't shy away from it. It's not really an effort. It's how I write songs.
I would say "These Days." It was the title song to an album I put out, and it's really this song that you'll hear throughout the episodes and the season in the show. I write all my music, I'm an independent artist so we do it all in-house and that song embodies exactly what the title says.
It was actually the production group that ended up producing the show for us.

I'm legitimately having more fun doing music, but at the same time I worked my whole life for baseball. If I had to pick, I would probably pick music. I just connect more with the fact that other people connect with that I'm doing so much. It's a much cooler thing than being good at sports.
You're talking about a whole camera crew and being mic'd up professionally everyday and just having another group of people following you around. It's a little different than having friends pick up a camera and follow you around.
I basically try not to waste any lines in any of my songs, and I think the witty phrases and funny lyrics I have bring a smarter sound to college hip-hop.
