The unconventional Mikey P, or Michael, separates himself from the stereotypical G. Mikey P doesn’t drink, and he takes particular care of his hair. It takes him 15 minutes to style it, just so it looks right enough for him. What comes as a surprise in his character is his trait or habit of ironing his underwear. He thinks he’s a worthy G because of his ability to be clean, cool and a jerk. He believes that doing all these at once is enough for him to stay on the competition floor.
Mikey P hails from Lumberton, New Jersey. He knows how to work a crowd, being a bartender and rapper. He is also known for being a promoter, while spending quality time on his motorcycle. He takes great pride in maintaining his appearance, as well as his attitude. He makes sure that he commands respect from those around him, but needs to be certain that he gives as much of it as he wants.
Mikey P is also a member of the hip hop group DaCav5 or Da Cavalry 5, a challenge to his attitude of holding a crowd’s attention. The group is composed of suburban South Jersey natives, and they have already released enough singles to earn them fans on MySpace. In 2005, Mikey P came aboard, upon the founder’s graduation from college, and has been with them throughout their success. He wants music to be an outlet for him and the group’s fans, and also wishes that they would be able to connect to the messages they bring out.
At first glance, Mikey P is definitely not an unkempt man, but he has to prove that he is as clean and orderly on the inside as well. He has to leave the life he was used to in the suburbs to undergo a different type of exposure.
