Mike Stud, Rhode Island’s sensational hip hop artist is bringing his signature sounds to the Paradise Rock Club!

Mike Stud (birth name Michael Francis Seander) was born in Cranston (Rhode Island) in 1988 and is a singer and rapper. He took an interest in music while recovering from a baseball injury. After his second year in Duke University’s baseball program, he suffered an arm injury that required surgery and, to keep himself occupied during his recovery, he started writing rap songs. He said in an interview, “I realized that I enjoyed making music and people were starting to listen. My passion for playing the game was fading because really I wasn’t as good. My arm wasn’t working the same. So, it was almost like a perfect way of keeping my mind off it and as much as it might have felt like it was a hobby to start, it really did kind of feel like medicinal almost. You know what I mean? I would just go and make music, and stay up in the room at night and experiment. It didn’t really happen on one day or one time. It just kind of happened as a process.” His first song (College Humor) was a Garage Band production that quickly racked up over 1.5 million views on YouTube. He went on to have a stellar career with 3 studio albums and 6 mix tapes.
