The Real Mike Wilson is a rapper and producer from Bedstuy, Brooklyn. His music is carefully crafted to be uplifting but not preachy.
He joins the ranks of conscious emcees like Lupe Fiasco, J Cole and Kendrick Lamar with his rapid flows, analogies and socio-political topics. In 2002, The Real Mike Wilson (often written as TRMW), wrote his first song after hearing Eminem by proxy. His classmate would sing the lyrics to "The Way I Am" daily and the rhythm rubbed off on TRMW. He went home and wrote his first rap, albeit about one of his favorite game, Sonic. In 2003, while working after school at his former elementary school, TRMW was given a download for the controversial DAW, Fruityloops (now FL Studios). He recorded his first record in 2005 with a $5 usb mic from the mega store Fat Albert located in Bushwick.
