The return of a legend to the Byrd

About this Event

Born Mark Williams Jr., Mickey Factz, was raised in the culture of Hip-Hop, “My dad used to rap to me when I was a baby to keep me from crying” he says. As he grew older his influence came from his peers and the world around him, but it was hearing rappers Big Daddy Kane and LL Cool J for the first time that truly started his love for hip hop. “Kane was very confident,” Mickey recalls. “But he was also still as smooth, and so was LL Cool J.”

Factz honed his music and crafted his unique sound by releasing six full-length mixtapes, including his critically acclaimed release Heaven’s Fallout in 2007 and his high concept mixtape, The Dark Phoenix Alpha. In addition to his solo work, Mickey Factz has worked with some of the hottest artists in the industry, including Drake, B.o.B., The Cool Kids, Travis McCoy, and Hip-Hop pioneers like Afrika Bambaataa.

Factz parlayed his growing body of work into a global following and an impressive amount of media attention including features in major music magazines Fader, Spin, and Complex. Mickey even appeared on the cover of XXL Magazine as part of their 2009 Freshmen 10 issue.

Following the success of Mickey MauSe, Factz continued to prep for his debut album The Achievement. In October of 2013 he released the first single from the album, Zen which features Hip-Hop artist Yelawolf. After the release of Zen, Factz had the opportunity to be the opening act for long time friend Lupe Fiasco on the rappers Tetsuo and Youth Preview Tour in late 2013.

Following the Tetsuo and Youth Preview Tour, Mickey took a brief hiatus from the entertainment industry. He resurfaced in 2014 with the release of $4.14, which premiered on MTV Jams. In July of 2014, Mickey released his first mixtape of the year, 740 Park Avenue and quickly followed with Love. Lust. Lost 2. His second television world premiere of the year came with the release of Detroit Red, which premiered on Revolt TV.

The following year, Mickey spent time reconnecting with his fans building his audience. He headlined his first national tour called the “Red or Blue Pill” Tour and began working on the highly anticipated mixtape, Y-3. Y-3, which was released in September of 2015, featured heavyweights such as Charles Hamilton, CyHi The Prynce, Nikki Jean, Tony Williams, and El-Zhi with production from Key Wane and the legendary Just Blaze.

Mickey Factz is the true embodiment of artistry. His body of work stands as homage to the culture while awash in today’s spirit of innovation.
