Welcome To The Alliance for Alternative and Eclectic Hip-Hop

You are witnessing history in the making! We are a collective of the black sheep, redheaded stepchildren, and misfit toys of the hip-hop culture...and we are proud of it. We know we are strange, different, and that makes us insufferably awesome. If you check us out, we know you'll wanna stay awhile.
If you are an artist who gets the side-eye, you're considered weird, you blend genres, or people keep asking what the hell you're on about, and you chiefly identify with hip-hop...join us. You'll always have a home here.

Mic Familiar: Forward Thinker

Mic Familiar is a hip-hop producer/rapper based out of the Garden State. Using his immediate surroundings as inspiration, he tackles issues such as racism, stereotypes and existentialism-- the world painted through the eyes of a light-skinned suburban city baby. Not only does he offer criticism of the world around him, Mic Familiar also displays an immense criticism directed at himself, the artist.
 "At no point in time do I want to prove anything to you, other than that I'm dope. I don't do beef; I got myself to battle with."
His music can be best described as an interesting manipulation of sound alongside cerebral lyrics.

After discovering his voice in hip-hop Mic Familiar began growing in his craft, making his presence known at open mics and cyphers. With a wide variety of musical influences past hip-hop, Mic Familiar has firmly established his sound.
Since this moment of growth, he has gone on to bigger and better things. He has opened up for indie artist K. Flay, and released his debut album entitled "Illustrious Days"; a chronicle of raps and discovery.
 Expect great things from this one.
