Healthy Independent People Helping Other People
The Microphone Misfitz are the epitome of the acronym HIPHOP – Healthy Independent People Helping Other People. Their music focuses on the themes of living for a healthier state of mind, uplifting those who are trying to find their path in this world, and rejuvenating the fundamentals of what Hip-Hop truly is in a world that has forgotten the essence of the culture.
The Misfitz front-man, D-Nick the Microphone Misfit himself – enjoys the fact that his crew can collectively provide an eclectic performance of all 5 Elements of Hip-Hop: Master-of-Ceremonies (MC), B-Boying (Break Dancing), Graffiti (Urban Street Art), DJ (Live Turntable Scratching), and finally the collective of knowledge, culture and over standing.
Each member adds their own flavor to the overall Misfitz experience. Kin Solo is the choreographer & movement artist. Ray of Light is the hybrid between dancer & MC. Mel L. is the Graffiti artist, vocalist, & road DJ. DJ Mar & Mike Knobel (aemka) are the production team and D-Nick is the lead MC, lyricist & artistic director of the group.
The Microphone Misfitz have toured overseas in Algeria, Comic Con, SXSW, & Navy Pier, The Fitz have also opened for great artist like KRS One, Jeru Tha Damaja, Saul Williams Professor Griff, Brother Ali & more. They are promoting their latest album/comic book Escape from Babylon Vol. II, a follow up to 2012's Escape From Babylon.
