Mike Floss capitalizes on his natural instincts with creativity and unmatched lyrical prowess. Growing up under the guidance of his father and renown jazz musician, Rod McGaha, his roots were deeply planted in art and self-expression. He attended the HBCU in his hometown, Tennessee State University, where in between the parties and classes, he began mastering his craft and developing his sound. "I can do a song with Yo Gotti and still get my wave in...then turn around and do J Dilla records with Erykah Badu and bring something young and refreshing to the culture."
This rising underground king has created something new in the south and continues to rapidly expand his reach with Tennessee Daydreams. "There are very few rap artists that make it out of Nashville and until recently there wasn't an unified hip hop culture in the city, my friends and I are changing that, brick by brick," he explains. "I named the project Tennessee Daydreams to give the masses a look at what we offer."
"The state of hip-hop in Nashville is at an awkward crossroads. While it's neighboring Memphis is at the root of some of hip-hop's greatest sounds, the city's claim to fame comes mainly as the Country Music Capital of the world, leaving a major void that a talented spectrum of artists are looking to fill. Enter Mike Floss: a trumpeter-turned-emcee with a diversified discog that's placed him among the ranks of the hottest talent emerging out of the Southern metropolis..the best part is that he's only getting started." - The Source
