While in Spain the Dungeon Family affiliate sat down with Pitchfork to discuss his reasoning for focusing on “the truth” in his rhymes and recognizing the internet’s role in the global expansion of Hip Hop.

“I choose to speak the truth because I think there’s value in it,” says Mike. “Everybody enjoys a good fantasy, but the truth is so much more entertaining.”
