Name: Mike Posner
Reppin’: Southfield, Michigan
Musical Style: Hip-hop/pop
Meet Mike Posner, a 21-year-old junior attending Duke University. Hailing from the outskirts of Detroit, the young musician has a long history of music, starting with the drums in middle school, and then graduating to beat making by his early teens.
At the age of 17, he surfaced as a vocalist when he was featured several times on Detroit’s 102.7 FM. Since then, he’s become the brainchild behind some of Big Sean’s (Island Def Jam/GOOD) best tracks, proving himself as a talented producer.
Earlier this year, Posner went on a mission to chase a solo career, dropping his first mixtape titled A Matter Of Time with DJ Benzi and Don Cannon. The project featured covers, original tracks, and guest spots with his good friend, Big Sean, receiving rave reviews from both fans and bloggers. Its title is perfect, because it’s only a matter of time before this kid blows.
We caught up with him for one of his first video interviews online, as we kick it with Mike during a day at Duke.
