With the release of his DJBooth-sponsored Best You Never Heard mixtape, underground mainstay Mikkey Halsted intends to bring the uninitiated up to speed on what he’s all about. Lesson one in the Windy City emcee’s crash course comes in the form of inaugural leak I’m the Man, which finds Halsted emphasizing the fact that well, he’s the man – and, consequently, you’re not. Accompanied by producer SC‘s subdued blend of chopped vocal samples and harpsichord (looks like the harpsichord comeback I predicted over on RefinedHype is already underway!), Halsted backs up his assertion, delivering bars brimming with heavily-alliterated braggadocio: “N*ggas took exception when I called myself sire, but they sat back and watched me set the city on fire.” On the middle and final verses, fellow Chi-town natives Sly Polaroid (previously heard on Ben One‘s Never Leave My Side (Remix)) and Cloak Hancock step up to the mic, each making a convincing case for his own status as “The Man.” For more “hard sh*t” from Mikkey and his cohorts, download a copy of BYNH when it hits the Booth this Thursday.
