Name: Mighty Infamous

*YOE: Six years

Hometown: Bronx, NY

Musical Influences: Jay-Z, Nas, Big Pun, Eminem, and Ghostface Killah

Favorite Rap Album: Supreme Clientele

Sales Pitch: I’m the greatest lyricist from the Bronx. This is my second time on XXL. Last Summer, my track, "Turn The Radio Off" got on here and I got some good feedback. I put out "Infamy, Death of a Lyricist," which is on iTunes now, and my buzz got up there. "Meantime" is the first single off my next release, Urgent Patience, which is due out August 1st and is gonna be able to be downloaded from my page. I want my music to be heard so I’m giving it away. So y’all have no reason to not have my album on your iPod. My next single, "Home Again," is dropping on July 4th and that’s definitely a classic, so we gonna get that in the Banger section. [Editor's Note: Yeah buddy, we'll see about that.] Good looks to Eskay and Jackpot for looking out and giving me a shot at getting my music up here. Maybe XXL will finally put me in the "Show & Prove" section of the magazine now.
