Michael Francis Seander, Jr., better known as Mike Stud, is a Duke-educated, former All-American baseball player who unexpectedly turned to music after an injury robbed him of his lifelong dream to play pro ball. Now, Mike Stud can be seen at the top of the Billboard and iTunes charts as he continues to build his brand in the most unconventional way -- as an unsigned artist, heavily relying on social media to build awareness, sell tickets and engage with fans around the world.
In just five short years, Mike Stud has garnered over 60 million views on YouTube, released three #1 Hip-Hop Albums on iTunes, and headlined three notoriously ‘wild’ national tours.
His music first received notice with the rap single, College Humor, in 2010, which he recorded as a joke. The video was a huge viral success, racking up over 1.5 million views. Mike’s music career took off quickly: He released his first mixtape, A Toast to Tommy, in October 2011. In May 2013, Stud’s debut studio album, Relief debuted at 109 on the Billboard 200 chart and peaked at 55. But the biggest move from the former pitcher-turned rapper came when Mike Stud hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Rap charts with his 2014 2nd album, Closer, which received over 1.4 million YouTube views for the title track. His YouTube channel has passed 145K subscribers, and he recently dropped his third album, These Days which landed him #1 on iTunes Hip Hop charts.
In support of this latest album, Mike just completed his “Back2You” tour on which he played 40 sold out shows in cities across the U.S.
On June 21st, Mike’s eight-episode docu-series “This is Mike Stud” will premiere on Esquire Network. This series will follow Stud as he gears up to embark on the biggest tour of his career.

"Nick Harrison, born on May 18th, 1989, is a hip hop artist from Maryland. As a kid, Nick had an infatuation with music. He was given his first microphone at the age of 6 years old and began writing poetry at the young age of 11. Throughout his teens he continued to write poetry and song lyrics as a hobby and as a way to get away from everyday chaos. As a kid, Nick was seen as an outcast to many so he would write to pass the time and used writing as escape. Rehearsing and writing nearly everyday sharpened Nick's skills as a lyricist. At the age of 16 is when he realized that being a Hip Hop artist was the only thing that as important.
When he was 17, he was introduced to producer and close friend, DJ Dyn-O-Might. Dyn-O-Might took him under his wing and showed him some of the ins and out's of the industry. During this time, Nick, with the help of Jones, created his first official mixtape "The Resume" that was released in early 2009. This mixtape gained him local recognition. In 2011, Nick teamed up with close friend/business partner, Jerron Collins, to start something known as "VerseOftheWeek" where every Friday, Nick would drop a new verse and video to popular hip hop songs. This gained him a good amount of exposure. VerseOftheWeek is set to make a comeback on August 3rd 2012.
Nick has worked with the Legendary DJ Kool, performed in venues all over including the world Famous Roxy Theatre in Hollywood California, and has shared the stage with Shady Records hip hop group, Slaughterhouse. His newest project, "Legend of the Moochers" is set to be released in early 2013.
