Artist of the day: Mike Mass
Tampa (via the Bronx) rapper Mike Mass has been recording since he was a teenager, with a slick, soulful style reminiscent of Lupe Fiasco or J. Cole. His performance on Apathy's No Sad Tomorrow is evidence of his propensity for unconventional beats and hooks.
On Friday, you can look for Mike Mass at a free show with Rahim Samad and DJ Sandman at The Bricks in Ybor City. At 9 p.m., there will be a sneaker release party followed by the concert at 10 p.m. The show is 21 and up. Click here for details.
