I would never suggest anyone leave school but in the case of Mickey Factz the former NYU law student has clearly made his decision to leave school for a music career work in his favor. With a barrage of music released through a year span he has garnered enough attention to be included on the XXL magazine Freshman Class of ’09 as well as featured in commercial project from Honda, and EA Sports. The man has stayed busy. His latest project I’m Better Than You sees the bronx native return to his more lyrical content, something he has been criticized over since the release of his last two projects Heaven’s Fallout and darkphoenix: ALPHA which many felt may have boxed in his talents. I’m Better Than You sets out to dimenish those doubters and solidify why Sony was quick to add his talents to their roster. Having known Mickey for sometime now I may be a bit bias but I must say I’m Better Than You might be his most successful project holistically to date, from a artist standpoint. The raw talent is there and allowed to breathe over the well chosen production. Great project from the man one that really reopened my eyes to what might be the start of a very long career for Mickey Factz.
