I created this record out of love. The first single off of Love.Lust.Lost.II entitled U (Q) artistically covers, with the blessings from the ever magnificent Erykah Badu, a man’s devotion for the person he is engaged with.
– Mickey Factz
You heard it from Mickey first. “U(Q)” is a sweet new record for the lovers out there as, don’t get it twisted, Mickey rhymes (not sings) with his usual distinct clarity and storytelling. The lyrics appropriately balance wit and realness that’s easy to parallel to as well.
To link it all together, Mickey and producer Blue, TheMisfit brilliantly sample Erykah Badu’s “Out My Mind, Just In Time”. They chop it up as well to create a hip hop edge in the transitions from hook to verses that, as Factz says above, Erykah herself has co-signed. This sound is especially felt live, as I can attest because Mickey premiered “U(Q)” the last time he was in Chicago. It got a great first impression from the crowd and if you vibe with my picks here on the site, I think it will do the same for you below.

“U(Q)” is Mickey’s first release on the heels of his impressive summer project, 740 Park Avenue, and doubles as the first single off of his new concept mixtape due out this Fall, Love.Lust.Lost.II. There is assuredly more to come on the project soon, as in the meantime, Mickey is preparing to go on a new Fall tour that we’re proud to be co-sponsoring! More details here.
Good Morning! I am actually in shock by this. In December, I announced that I wanted to not do music anymore. Since then, I have put out some songs, freestyle video, a mixtape, a sponsorship/partnership situation with @uniqlousa and now Im announcing my tour The Blue & Red Pill tour. I came up with the title because I had to make a choice on what I wanted to do with my career. So for the fans, Im going to give them a choice… 740 Park Avenue & Love.Lust.Lost.II will be the blue & red pills of the tour. Whatever the crowd chooses for me to do first, is what will happen. I will also be going through some classics! Joining me will be @underdogcentral somebody I mentor and the New Orleans Saints official Dj @primalonvinyl … Dates will be announced in the next hour. I would really appreciate if you can share and like the photo as promo will be starting today! Thank you! Shout to @gowherehiphop @djbooth and @allhiphopcom.
