Grind Winters Out

New York, NY, March 2006--When the call goes out for the real Mike Watts to stand up, its Philadelphias own producer, rapper, and native son that rises to the occasion. Though many others can boast that they share the same name as this industry hustler, its obvious that they do not possess his passion and dedication. CEO of his own East Coast- based record label, Mike initiated Watts Records after getting his first record played on the radio when he was just 15. Mike then became the first East Coast rapper to chop and screw his entire album; the product of which is Pandoras Box. This hard-hitting collection, which Watts describes as having an East Coast flavor with a Down South accent, flaunts his talents alongside some of hip hops most electrifying artists. Included in this high-voltage ensemble are Bizzy Bone of Bone Thugs, Phillys own Freeway, and Houstons Bun B.

Carving out his own path, Mike Watts is now embarking on yet another first. The streets of Philly recently pulsated with his intense lyrics and methodical beats as Visually Yours Inc. produced and recorded Mike Watts first ever music video for the albums lead single Grind Winters Out. A born hit, Grind Winters Out made its grand unveiling as #46 on the Billboard Charts Top 50 R&B/Hip- Hop Singles the week of March 18th, proving that Mike Watts is well on his way to greatness. The video, like the song, features Jiz Nickelz and Houstons hot boy Paul Wall, performing on-location in Mikes backyardthe great city of Philadelphia. From Club Tragos to WHAT Radio Station, Mike Watts has chosen locations that are near and dear to him, and fans will hear it in his music. Mike recently joined Big Daddy Kane, D.J. Premiere and Ed Lover in a Black History Salute to Heroes of Hip Hop event to teach and uplift youth who are interested in the rap industry.

By definition, Pandoras Box is a source of troubles and difficulties; the outcome of a deep, powerful curiosity that leads one to take any and all necessary risks. It is with that in mind that Mike Watts lays his dynamic voice, powerful message and intricate lyrics over revamped, old school beats, which will take you back to the days of hanging out on the block with your Gameboy.
