Madisonville Native Kicks Off Music Career

michael micMADISONVILLE, Ky. (8/13/13) – Local Madisonville native Michael Camacho, AKA Macho Mic has officially began his career in the Hip Hop music industry.
 
Camacho, born and raised in the Hopkins County area, is currently based in Atlanta, Georgia and has just released his debut album.
 
“I’ve lived in Hopkins County (more specifically Madisonville) all my life and recently branched out to pursue my music career,” said Camacho. “I really wanted to let everyone back home know that I’ve released 2 albums (available on iTunes and my website) and that I’m going to be building my career from that with shows, etc.”
 
Writing and producing his own music since his teens, this Kentucky native has poured his heart and soul into his first 16-track full-length album.

Packed with complex lyricism and wit, each track on the album allows this up-and-coming artist’s true skill to shine. This skill allows him to take full advantage of every beat on the album, all but two produced by the artist himself. His intricate rhyming structure and use of wordplay are evident in each of his tracks, from the hard-hitting ‘All You’ to the booty-centric ‘Widallat.’ Two singles have been released from the album; ‘Resurrection of Real’ which he performed at Harlem Nights with Coast 2 Coast Live and the uplifting and honest ‘Never Ever.’
 
Macho Mic is already working on his next album, which may be dropping later this year. Three new songs can be heard on his website www.MachoMic.com. He has also just finished his mixtape “Unbridled Spirit,” expected to be released on August 10th, 2013. Compiled of past and present songs; “Unbridled Spirit” allows Macho to give his own perspective on tracks by artists that he respects. It also shows his variety of subject matter and displays his versatility as an artist. If you’re in the area, you can catch him performing at Smith’s Olde Bar, August 29th. He’ll be competing for the top spot in the 2Racks Rap Contest, so come show some support for Macho Mic and many other hip hop artists.
