Once upon a time, NYC buzzmaker Mike Check was just another elementary-schooler with pipe dreams of a career in the music game. What separated him from the countless others with similar aspirations? He held out HOPE, rather than allowing himself to be distracted from his hustle or disheartened by the inevitable setbacks. On this freshly-released album single, featured in conjunction with Gator 8 Film‘s official visuals, Mike recounts how his childhood love of music developed into an ironclad determination to make it as an emcee. Joining the headliner over Nytro‘s delicate piano arpeggios and thundering percussion, Ewald delivers a heartfelt guest hook. Has this uplifting cut left you craving more? You’ll find what you seek on Mike Check’s Stars, Dreams & Elbow Grease LP, available in stores and online as of February.
