Mike Stud‘s latest music video On & On features Conrad Sewell on the chorus. On & On is the first single off his new mixtape It’s Spring Break, Homie! which is available to stream on SoundCloud. This Feeling is anther track worth checking out off the mixtape.
I just realized this is the first post on Mike Stud on BTC, which is crazy because I just checked my last.fm history and his Let Her Go (Passenger Remix) is actually in my top 10 most played tracks of all time. Mike Stud’s one of the few hip hop artists I like that falls under the genre of Frat Rap. He got his start with College Humor, which is still the first song I think of when I hear his name. College Humor was the first single off his first (mixtape turned) album Toast to Tommy (2012). I highly recommend giving it as listen, one of my favorite albums, check out the music videos from it (in order of popularity); Happy Ending, In This Life, Back Again, Bottle It Up, Summer Swag and On My Way. As a Canadian I can appreciate that you can usually spot a different sweet Jays hat in a ton of his videos.
The remixes he’s done have been some of his most popular tracks, like Sage The Gemini Gas Pedal (Remix), and Show Me / Paranoid which is a remix of Kid Ink and Ty Dolla singles. He’s also gained some youtube fame for remixing popular (non-rap) songs like Justin Bieber Boyfriend (Remix), Sam Hunt Leave The Night On (Remix), and of course Let Her Go by Passenger that I linked above. He’s also known for teaming up a lot with Huey Mack on tracks like Love This Life and music videos like School, Alive (Krewella Remix), and Dirty Laundry.
His follow up album was Relief (2013), and included the music videos Batter Up and Perfect For Me. His most recent album was in 2014 titled Closer, and featured his music video for Out Here. You might have caught onto his album naming scheme up to this point as Mike Stud used to play college baseball with a promising future until Tommy John Surgery made him decide to focus on his music career.
