Update: Mickey Factz Logs On As Honda’s Online Spokesperson

New details have emerged in the partnership between up-and-coming rapper Mickey Factz and Honda that XXLmag.com broke last month.

As previously reported the Bronx-bred MC – who was recently included in XXL’s Freshman Class – has teamed up with the popular car company for a national campaign, advertising their 2009 Accord. Now Honda has announced their plans to roll out an extensive online initiative, along with their TV commercial.

On their website rhymeandreasons.honda.com, the company plans on launching a blog by Mickey himself, music downloads and videos that give fans the chance to see him on stage, and during his everyday activities. Honda has also created its own Myspace and Youtube pages for the campaign.

In addition to being the spokesperson for the initiative, Factz penned a song to be used in the ad, called “Sensibility.” [Listen Here]

“I got paid for two services,” he told XXL in January. “I got paid to be an actor in the commercial and I got paid for my music to be in the commercial. So that’s two separate checks that I’m getting. I also get residuals on the commercial and if the commercial does well it gets extended. Right now it’s on a 3-month trial period. It’s a great situation and a great deal for me. It was a nice chunk of money.” – Evanka Williamson

    This news story is futher proof that the economy is fucked!!! You know it’s hard out here when a car giant like Honda gives and endoresememt deal to a broke ass no name rappers. I guess Jibbs wanted leather seats in his free car as part of the deal and Honda said, “fuck you, there’s plenty of no name mother fuckas out there to do this commercial for a fucking base model Honda Civic”

    And what the fuck is a Mickey Factz? I wonder if his name has anything to do with Mickey D’s posting calorie info on it menus . . .wouldn’t that be consider Mickey Factz?
