We had the good fortune of connecting with Mike Re-al and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Mike, we’d love to start by asking you about lessons learned. Is there a lesson you can share with us?
Staying solid until you come up. Nothing comes overnight. Stay prayed up and consistent in your craft. Nobody will give you any handouts, you gotta go work for it .Push your business/career to people you barely know , they gonna support you the most. Because they hold no tides and no expectations. Overall do what you love the rest will take care of itself.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Just to go back a little bit , I’m just a young man from Grand Rapids, Michigan who seen the life I didn’t wanna follow firsthand. Going through every high and low to get to the point where I’m at right now. I feel like the music I make has a certain esthetic to it, from the beat , melodies, and emotion that I put into it which is very rare in today’s music. When you really put the time in you start to see results in whatever you do. I’m excited to see what those results are including this interview!!!!. Nothing is gonna be easy, I feel like if you push your brand/music in the right manner. The world will catch on to it. Few things I’ve learned is you just gotta stop caring about opinions in a way to be honest and when you think you not going hard you are, just the right crowd gotta hear it. Just don’t quit , Cloud 90 my brand is a lifestyle which is elevating higher than whats expected, no excuses. The narrative is authentic.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
