“Fisher Price” my first blog entry! Allow me to introduce myself formally. I go by Mirk. Some of you may have heard of me, but I'm sure most of you haven't. Which is why having the word “celebrity” attached to the section of the site this blog appears in is kind of an ego trip.
I am many things, but a celebrity is not one of them. At least not yet anyway. What I am is a father, a son, a husband, a singer, a rapper, an engineer and a composer. But what got me up on this blog is the hat I wear when I'm making beats/producing records. If you google my name you might have to add a couple other names in to the search engine to find what I did to become fame-ish. That's not a typo... Fame-ish is what you are when you kinda famous, but not really. Like more people know who you are than the average joe, but in the grand scheme you're still an unknown. Like you need to add someone else into your google search to seem important... If you add Jay-Z or Regina Spektor to that search you will find out I sampled a Regina Spektor song, made a beat and Jay-Z bought it! If you look a little further in that search, you'll discover I went to school for music and graduated in the same class as Miss Spektor. If you replace those names with Ciara, you'll find a remix I did, or with Petey Pablo, you might find a song I produced on his last album. Or if you turn on the tube, and watch a little reality TV, you might hear a 30 second clip of one of my tracks. All said and done, I may have sold/licensed a few records, but I'm still out here grinding trying to get established.
