You recently dropped “Left Eye” featuring D. Hayes. What is the story behind that song?

There isn’t a story lol. Left Eye is the first record I decided to drop with D Hayes. Hayes is an amazing producer I’ve enjoyed working with. I’m an indie, working in partnership with Ceo Ron Hatchett of Black Ink Management & Music Group (BIMMG). Our recordings are distributed through Bungalo Records|Universal UMG, so finding/building my own team has been paramount. Now Back to Hayes! Hayes threw me some beats that were crazy! He has phenomenal production, we came to terms on the business end for releases and history is now being made. He and I have more music to come and when I say fire I mean fire: Left Eye is moving on the charts now, and we look forward to bringing the people nothing but HEAT!!!

Who’s on your favorite playlist right now, and who would you like to work with on forthcoming projects?

I want to work with Drake, 50 cent, J Cole, Kendrick Lamar, 24kGoldn, Lil Wayne, HOV, Pusha T, and Kanye if he ever makes rap music again.

What’s next? What can we expect from Michael Stefan in the near future?

World dominance. I’m going out as one of the greatest mcs ever…….. I love rap. I love music. I could do this for free not none of that perpetrating money hungry dilute the culture trash! Real pinky and the brain vibes.
