Mickey Factz has seen an dramatic uptick that defies most rappers, especially in a Covid-19 environment. The Bronx native found himself embroiled in a conundrum with friend Lupe Fiasco, Royce da 5 9, RJ Payne, and Ransom. The situation caused shockwaves in the underground after he released the stunning diss track “Wraith,” following Lupe’s “Steve Jobs.” The catalyst was Royce’s “Silence Of The Lambda (Lupe Fiasco diss),” a beautifully surgical presentation that lit an inferno.
The songs effectively ruined a blossoming relationship between genius-level emcees, something the fans will ultimately lose out on. For Mickey, his boulder start rolling downward and then came to Drink Champs interview, which resulted in a conflict with Wu-Tang of Affiliates like Shyheim and Sunz of Man. With both situations in the rearview, Mickey Factz is left with his current reality and some questions.
