Mickey Factz “MauSe: An American Tale”
The MauSe is back!
Mickey Factz taps into his critically acclaimed character of Mickey MauSe for a sequel project, cleverly titled, Mau2e, and above is the brilliant first preview.
MauSe, the 2012 summer concept album turned to free mixtape, probably my favorite project from Mickey Factz, saw Mickey rhyme in the perspective of an artist during the Andy Warhol, Jean Michel Basquiat times of the 80s. The project’s name also derived from some production and samples from DeadMau5, and as a whole, featured cohesive skits that dived into the complexities of MauSe, his story and inspirations, and the time period itself. It’s simply a fascinating listen to transplant yourself into a developing character.
Mickey’s cult-like following has clamored for a sequel project and after many direct hints at Mau2e, Factz is going to deliver it even earlier than expected. Based on “MauSe: An American Tale”, it looks like we’ll see MauSe’s story continue into the 90s. And his storytelling raps immediately transplant you to that time, with some clever references to the likes of Factz’ favorite NBA player Shawn Kemp contributing to the mood. I love where this is going… read the preface below to fully grasp the story before listening.
During the early 1990’s, MauSe travels to Bristol to meet Blek Le Rat about some work. While there, he introduces him to a mysterious young adult named Robin who is looking for a mentor to assist in him in his work. After leaving Europe and heading home, MauSe notices he is becoming sick. Therefore, leaving him depressed and with a lot of decisions to make. Two of them being: Suicide and Tutelage. Mau2e arriving 12-25-15. Merry Christmas.
…And now I have a project that’s #1 on my Christmas list for new hip hop. EDIT: I can’t read. Christmas… next year. Dang. But I’m sure it’ll be worth the wait.
Here’s some late nite tweets from Factz to further explain the project.
