Born on February 3rd 1979 in Rockford IL, Michael Cornelius Campbell aka Michael Mic Check is enthusiast of hip-hop and life. He is one of the longest operating and performing M.C.’s from the forest city, manhandling microphone’s since the early 90’s and doing shows thru out the Midwest. Mic is a true believer of the “Street corner emcee’ and has hosted several ‘Grillz and Skillz’ and 'Verses with VS' freestyle competitions. Known also for his “let’s do it’ attitude, Mic Check has worked with other emcee’s from Rockford and Madison, and considers Milwaukee a kind of home away from home. His styles are a complex amalgam of wordplay, sexual tension and bring that beat back hip-
hop. Life shows are the pinnacle of performance art, and Mic Check wastes no opportunity to set forth his verbally gallery. Ranging from a hip-hop text book to a improve comedy night; his shows are more of a shared experience than a Saturday night with soundtrack. With his microphone in one hand, and the cord draped around his neck, he storms the stage with the intent of not only sharing the hip-hop culture, but pressing it forward.
