Mike Posner is a college student by day and a hit making major label star on the rise by night. When he is not collaborated with artists like Kid Cudi, Wale, and 3OH!3 he is busy completing his senior year at Duke University, hanging with his Sigma Nu fraternity brothers, touring on the weekends, and recording his debut album. The 21-year-old from Southfield, Michigan is an extremely busy guy but he was cool enough to answer three quick questions for COED.
1) How did you get discovered?
My junior year of college I locked myself in my dorm room and put a CD out on the internet (you can download it FREE at www.mikeposner.com). A month later, kids across the nation were singing my songs word for word. The people were screaming my name, the record labels followed the noise.
2) If I like artists X, Y and Z then I’d probably like Mike Posner also… who do you think artists X, Y and Z are and who can we expect you to collaborate with in the future?
If I thought I sounded like anybody else I would quit. But if Outkast, Paul Simon, and Deadmau5 had a wild orgy, you might end up with something that resembled a Mike Posner child.
3. When does your album drop and what are your future plans?
You can expect my album in 2nd or 3rd quarter 2010. I’m graduating from Duke University (that’s right I’m still in school right now) and climbing a ladder to the top of the world.
There you have it, short quick and to the point…just how you like it. If you want to hear some of Mike’s tunes check out his MySpace page or download his mixtape . Mike is also touring the country and puts on a great live show, check out dates here!
