On October 28th, Mickey Factz will finally release his long-awaited debut album, The Achievement: circa ’82.
We got a first taste of the Nottz-produced album with “414 Words” in September. And today, following The Road To The Achievement mix from a few days ago, the Bronx-bred emcee returns with another helping in “Treat You Right” with Phonte.
“Mickey is a cat that I’ve always had a lot of respect for and is a dope MC,” Phonte told XXL. “Wordplay and flow are two big factors for me when judging MC’s and he’s always delivered for me on both counts. His management sent me the record and I was already down, but once I saw it was a Nottz beat it was a no brainer. Nottz is family and we go back some years. I wanted to give him something really soulful, so I brought in my girl Tamisha Waden who sings with me in The Foreign Exchange to help fill out the background vocals and make it really thick. We got a jam.”
