Rising Austin, Texas rapper Michal Michal returns with a hypnotizing call to action on his latest single “DON’T BLAME THE KIDS.”
Released on Friday (Nov. 10), the track, accompanied by production and vocals from New York City native SAVTHEGENIUS, sweeps listeners off their feet on first listen. Between Michal’s swift bars and vocal flourishes that bring unabashed personality to the record, SAV’s expert flows complement Michal’s verse ten-fold.
Liking his women “fiesty” more than anything, manifestation is the underlying message of the track – backed by a mesmerizing sample (courtesy of The Emulations) and bouncy percussion that sees both artists take off effortlessly. A sample off of Michal’s forthcoming EP ‘DON’T BLAME THE KIDS’ (which is due out later this year), be sure to tap in with the young phenom preparing for his first full-length effort in 2024.
Hailing from Austin, Texas, Michal Michal’s talent lies in the notion of being a genuine voice for the youth. Offering a difference in an industry overrun with cliches, the 21-year-old singer-rapper’s ability to saunter between distinctive melodies and lyrically-poised bars are instantly heard-turning – evident on past cuts like “SOHO Freestyle,” “First High,” “Fell Off” and his highest-streamed hit “A Hangover Story.”
Emerging as one of the more unforeseen talents in Texas’ rap scene, Michal Michal is a sonic multihyphenate – able to pivot from slow-moving rap ballads to raw, intimate performances on each track he touches.Touting a mix of styles – akin to acts like Trippie Redd, iann dior, Mac Miller and KYLE, among others – his passion for music was seeded from a young age, when he would beg his parents to allow him to play the drums. Casting sonic spells through his dynamic, raspy vocal range, Michal’s official foray into music stems from the COVID-19 pandemic, where he was inspired by his friends who were also embedded in the arts.
His come-up continued with his September two-pack ‘Summer’s End’ and forthcoming EP entitled ‘DON’T BLAME THE KIDS.’ Its lead track, accompanied by NYC emcee SAVTHEGENIUS, not only further introduces Michal’s creative and unique skill set, but his presence as a rare alt-minded creative.
