Featured for the first time on the site today is an artist who truly deserves to boast the title of being an artist; a true creative in every sense of the word. Hailing from Detroit, but currently hustling in Austin, Mike Melinoe is a ball of creativity waiting to burst. Not only is Mike an aspiring hip-hop artist, but he’s also a phenomenal painter, model, and all around go-getter. Hip Hop is a single avenue in Mike Melinoe’s complicated grid of creativity.

Anything is a positive, uplifting track. Featuring production from fellow Austinite Netherfriends, the beat gives me some serious Pre-WZRD Cudi vibes. Mike addresses the beat with the utmost consciousness. Energy and vibes go a long way, and with the positivity and spirit that Melinoe constantly oozes, it’s only a matter of time before Mr. Melinoe smiles his way into widespread success.

You really can do Anything. What are you waiting for? Go do it! While you’re at it bump Anything below and check out Melinoe’s painting on his Instagram while you’re at it:
