New York City rapper, MIKE, releases the video for “Rottweiler” off his latest project War In My Pen. The black and white visual is directed by Matter Research and shot entirely in London by REEL FAKE.
MIKE also recently announced that he would be supporting the second leg of Earl Sweatshirt’s ‘Fire It Up! Tour.’ Starting on April 14th, MIKE will play 17 shows across the US with Earl.
War In My Pen concluded a prolific 2018 for MIKE, and was his fourth release of the year following Resistance Man, Black Soap, and Renaissance Man. War In My Pen was produced almost entirely by DJ Blackpower (MIKE’s producer alias), except for “Red Sox/Babylon” which is a co-production between himself and London’s RedLee.
