Born in Los Angeles, CA, Mike was raised by a single mother of four. As a teenager, he faced a lot of adversity but turned to music as a release. Prior to relocating to Las Vegas, NV in late 2015, the single father of one had no place to call home. Oftentimes he would sleep in his car and had little to his name. He began driving for Uber and Lyft, where he shared his music with others while en route to their destination. The music resonated deeply enough for passengers to shed tears. He wanted a better life for his son and let that motivate him to make a change and move to Las Vegas.
His lyrical style is simple, yet profound. Often painting vivid pictures with lyrics, he fancies crafting meaningful songs for people across the globe. Similar to his musical influences such as Tupac Shakur and Jack Johnson, Mike Xavier has set out to make a change.
2017 has proven to be a rewarding year for Mike. With publications such as Vegas Seven's Best New Rapper To Hit The Scene, and Las Vegas Weekly's Artist to Watch, Xavier's relentless work ethic is paying off. He has quickly become known for his captivating live performances along side his band.
