Years Active: 2010-present
Best Known Song: "College Humor"
"People say I got that dope flow, with a pop sound/ This rap shit was all a joke, but it's not now." That's how Mike Stud, a Duke baseball player and Providence native, describes his inauspicious start in hip-hop, two minutes into "On My Way." (We, however, would say "Obnoxious name, obvious lyrics.") He's been criss-crossing the country for the past few years, playing small-time venues and hitting six-figures on YouTube, regularly getting posted on Barstool U. So, forget Duke. Enroll there.
