The story of Mike Stud begins with him growing up as one of Rhode Island's greatest baseball players. During his high school senior year, he was named Rhode Island's 2006 Gatorade Player of the Year, received Louisville Slugger Player of the Year honors, and won a full athletic scholarship to Duke University. After the promising start to Stud's collegiate baseball career, however, Tommy John surgery put him on the sidelines. Making music became an outlet for him to pass the time. After only a few public releases of self-composed songs, he began to get notable recognition for his rhyming ability and was encouraged to continue. Fast forward 14 months, and Stud is now one of the hottest upcoming musicians on the web. His rookie mixtape A Toast to Tommy, released last October, debuted at No. 3 and No. 2 on the worldwide and US iTunes Hip-Hop Albums charts. He has since headlined a sold-out 20-city national tour and has acquired nearly 10 million YouTube views. His versatility and fun, upbeat style has transformed Stud into a truly viral artist. With each new release, he is constantly showing the world that he's about to take it over.
My all-new, all-original, debut mixtape/free album, 'Don't Flatter Yourself', is available now at http://DontFlatterYourself.com/
