Mizzy Raw was born in Philadelphia PA as Michael Coley. After multiple run-ins with the streets of Philly, Mizzy packed up his clothes, his aging experiences, kissed his Nana good-bye and headed down south to Jacksonville, FL. Knowing he had to make this move a productive one, he began to write and free-style every chance he got. After a few months of dedicated hard work, people began to notice this young man’s potential and talent, booking him for shows, tours, and fashion shows.
Now 23, representing his own brand of “Loyalty X Dedication X Respect”, Mizzy has an expanding LDR fan base in Florida, New York, California, and Canada. Priding himself on creating his own RAW sound, he is just getting started. Influenced by musical geniuses such as Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar, Big Sean, J. Cole, and Chance the Rapper, he continues to mature his sound by through experience and opportunity.
Mizzy has opened and performed for a variety of artists who have visited the city of Jacksonville including Bone Thugs in Harmony, Waka Flaka, Chuckie Campbell and the Phaction, K-camp, and Lil Debbie. Recently, he has successfully put together and hosted two concerts in Jacksonville and his currently working on a new project expected to be released in the new year. Mizzy is also preparing to expand his brand to new levels, turn his craft into a business, and finally make all his hard work official with hopes of signing a record deal sooner than later. The one thing keeping Mizzy going every day is not only the faith he has in himself but the unrelenting support of his fans.
Mizzy’s debut EP Now What is a testament to his journey through severe, continual hardship, as well an expression of his incredibly contextual environment.
