Substantially involved with a variety of disciplines — social activism, theater acting, and spoken word poetry — Michael “Mike-E” Ellis usually discovers methods to incorporate almost all into his uplifting, Afrocentric hip-hop. The Detroit-based MC was in fact given birth to in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, and relocated to the U.S. when he was 3 years aged. Before he released a full-fledged rap profession, he could possibly be noticed gracing several tv advertisements and heard performing many voiceovers for radio. Nevertheless, Ellis discovered a national target audience for his lyricism on HBO’s Russell Simmons Presents Def Poetry in 2004, and he came back to the display as a preferred newcomer for later on seasons. His exclusive and diverse encounters fully ready him to begin with liberating music through his Wendemé Innovative imprint. In early 2007, Mike-E going in the Afroflow tour sponsored from the American Malignancy Culture. Targeting historically dark universites and colleges, his concerts furthered the reason for tobacco avoidance and cancer consciousness, but also advertised his AfroFlow LP, which showed up later in the entire year.
