'Nothing I can do is wrong', croons Forrest's sampled voice at the start of New York City rapper MIKE's newest record, 'Beware of the Monkey'. However, the album is rife with self-reflection, as the wordsmith grapples with personal and professional hurdles. His flow, however characteristically relaxed, is more assertive than ever, combined with his best production yet. His latest work is a complex portrait of a child prodigy turned fully-fledged artist. Straddling the line between confidence and introspection, MIKE proves himself once again as a force to be reckoned with in the current rap landscape.
