Mike Bigga to Coach Aspiring Rapper on ‘Made’ Episode
Mike Bigga, formerly known as Killer Mike, is lending some advice about achieving success in the difficult world of hip-hop. The Atlanta-based MC has just revealed that he will appear on an upcoming episode of the long-running MTV series 'Made.' Coaching a teen rapper with the whole world ahead of him, Mike will try to morph unpolished talent into a territory where it's not so embarrassing.
According to Mike's publicist, the episode should be airing in the next two weeks but his camp can't reveal what happens in the plot. The show has a long history of dealing with aspiring rappers that want to impress their fellow high school classmates and start a career in the music industry. Past coaches from the hip-hop game have included Talib Kweli and Jean Grae and underground wordsmith Homeboy Sandman and C-Rayz Walz.
The timing of Mike's cameo is nothing short of perfect for him. He is prepping the release of his fourth studio recording, 'PL3DGE,' for March 22 and the audience that watches MTV seems to present an untapped fanbase for him. The record will be coming out via SMC Recordings/Grind Time and features a quality roster of ATL talent including Young Jeezy, Gucci Mane and many more guest spots.
