Micky Munday is an L.A. based hip-hop artist. Growing up in various neighborhoods throughout the Los Angeles area, he met and experienced many sides of the city, allowing him to see what success looked like from the outside in. Since an early age, Micky has expressed his thoughts and ideas through lyrical poetry and spoken word, and at 17 he decided to take his destiny into his own hands by dedicating his life to becoming a professional musician.
After watching the documentary “Cocaine Cowboys”, Micky and a group of local artists collaborated on a track they named after the film.
