Born and raised in Philadelphia PA, Michael Coley aka Mizzy Raw took a bold step and decided to better his chances in life by leaving the rugged streets of Philly. He kissed his Nana good-bye and headed down south to Jacksonville, FL. Knowing he had to make this move a productive one, he began to write and freestyle every chance he got. His latest release is a poignant, self-searching track titled “Pennies 4 Your Thoughtz”. Done over a somber, yet soulful backdrop, Mizzy Raw details his struggles, trials and much more with such intensity you can vividly picture his pain.IO
BIO: Mizzy has opened and performed for a variety of artists who have visited the city of Jacksonville including Bone Thugs in Harmony, Waka Flaka, Chuckie Campbell and the Phaction, K-camp, and Lil Debbie. Recently, he has successfully put together and hosted two concerts in Jacksonville and is currently working on a new project expected to be released in the new year. Mizzy is also preparing to expand his brand to new levels, turn his craft into a business, and finally make all his hard work official with hopes of signing a record deal sooner than later. The one thing keeping Mizzy going every day is not only the faith he has in himself but the unrelenting support of his fans.
