July 22nd, 2003- Auditioned for "South Georgia Idol" and out of 60 contestants, made it to the 1st round of auditions. I didn't compete in the 1st round, but was welcomed back to compete in the 2nd round after impressing the judges so much in the first round.
November 11th, 2005- First studio session. First demo 'Demo 11/11'.
December 11th, 2005- Second demo "Back 2 Da Booth: Vol. 1" featuring Damichael Benton.
September 2011- Got Soulja Boy pulled from 5 radio stations including S.A. Town, L.A., and one in N.Y over the "fuck the troops" freestyle.
I have. I used to preform at The Flavor Of New Orleans in downtown Valdosta, Georgia. They had open mic every 1st and 3rd Thursday. I've also preformed for talent shows, I've freestyled on the radio (Hot 102.7), and have freestyled at a few clubs, but I'm looking to start doing more shows in the future.
I get inspiration from all sorts of people, places, and things. I usually just get on soundclick and pick a beat, usually it's late at night, when I ''unwind'' and just let feelings go crazy. I've also listened to other artists and have written songs while listening to them, then just found another good beat to listen to. I listen to a lot of underground, and old school, like Big Daddy Kane, Big L, Big Pun, Biggie, Matlock, Tupac, Staind, Nas, R.A. Rugged Man, JMT... Idk, I've also just wrote things down as a jouranl entry and came back later and used that.
Sonar LE, CakeWalk, Acid Music Pro. 6.0, Magix 15, Pro Tools, LiVid, Boss DR-550MKII Beat Machine, M-Audio USB Condencer Microphone, Yamaha PSR E303 Keyboard, My Dell Labtop, PreSonus, Avid, Studio One, and Fruity Loops 8 all have contributed to the sounds of Tony Mike.
