This bouncy number, with a video that featured the God MC Rakim Allah, couldn't have came at a better time for Juelz. After his debut, From Me to U, fell short of expectations, "Mic Check" immediately ratcheted up his buzz and got Def Jam on board for his sophomore album. It also came at a time when Juelz was coming into his own as a rising star. Who could forget the way he opened up by telling biters, "Don't watch me, watch T.V."? It was almost as classic as his necklace with a medallion that simply read "A," in homage to his trademark ad-lib. Shit's clean. Imposters, ain't no future in your font!
