Artist Bio –
Born Mike Rivera and hailing from the birthplace of Hip Hop, New York City, Mike was raised on the pioneers of hip hop, from Nas to Wu-Tang to Big Pun and Canibus. Growing up as the youngest of 4 brothers, Mike watched his olders brothers lip sync some of hip hop’s most classic rhymes and at the age of 7 he began to write his own rhymes so he can impress them. Gaining a love and a passion for music, Mike ventured into the underground hip hop scene using the moniker Mike J Gottie. As Mike J Gottie, he toured the north-east along with Dj Puerto Roc (Canibus Road Dj) and established himself as one of the best up and comers. Through years of touring and recording, Mike took a personal leave from hip hop in 2009, but in the fall of 2012 with a new vision and new identity he came back under the name Jak Skelly and in 2014 he was named lyrical artist of the year. Now in 2014 he wants to hold that title to great honors with the release of several new projects including Jak Madness (31 songs in 31 Days) and the highly anticipated “Respect The Mecca” V.1.
Currently, Jak has released both the single “Respect The Mecca” & “Catching Planes” and will release tomorrow Jak Madness, which will be 31 songs in 31 Days (March 1st -31st). I have added Both singles and the first record off Jak Madness. If you need anything else ill send right away.
