Description: Sharp. Eclectic. And completely off the wall. From the viciously fast-paced 'Hustlin Ill' to the self aware reflections of 'Desperado', '16 Bars' gives listeners a look inside the 16 different personas that make Portland emcee Mike Bars one of the most diverse hip hop artists on the rise. Covering everything from R&B and Dubstep to Old School Hip Hop, there is something on this project for everyone. With scratches from the talented DJ Hoppa, and guest appearances from both SwizZz and Dizzy Wright, the presence of Independent record label, Funk Volume, can definitely be felt throughout ’16 Bars’. To compliment the mixtape, an incredibly graphic music video was released on Halloween for ‘There Will Be Blood’, which has already reached over 22,000 views. With 530 subscribers, nearly 81,000 cumulative YouTube views, and having performed with the likes of Twista, members of Bone Thugs N Harmony, Mack 10, Three 6 Mafia, Glasses Malone, and Yukmouth, Mike seems to be well on his way to making a big splash in the underground music scene.
