Birth
Imagine a young infant born with a series of birth defects affecting the child’s mouth, lips, and face. Again, imagine the parents of this child being told that their son will suffer from a severe speech impediment and will struggle to speak effectively and properly his entire life. No need to imagine any further. Verse. Hip-hop MC. Lyrical artist.

Music
At a very young age, Mike “Verse” Mills fell in love with hip-hop music and its accompanying culture. As he grew in age, Verse found himself influenced more and more by the culture in which he had immersed himself. Verse often recounts his testimony, one filled with drugs, alcohol, and depression to name a few.

God’s Power
Beyond this, however, he emphasizes God’s changing power in his life and the lasting effect Christ has had in his actions and words. Recognizing the impact of God’s grace in his life Verse states, “God did not have to give me this gift of music. I take it as a true blessing to be used by God in this way. I pray that through this gift I may be able to impact the lives of anyone willing to listen, so that they may come to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.”

Style
Hailing from Huntsville, Texas and then relocating to Lakeland, Florida, a strong influence of southern hip-hop can be heard throughout Verse’s music. Heavy bass, rapid-fire rhythms, and Christ-centered lyrics create the palette from which Verse works, each song becoming a canvas that paints a clear picture God’s love, mercy, and redemption.

Influences
Musically influenced by a vast array of artists Verse explains, “I try not to limit myself in the music I create regarding style and genre. My music, of course, will always be centered around God’s Word. Even at a very young age, I was always studying different sounds and rhythms, and this gave me a base from which to work from when I began working on projects in a studio." He truly envisions himself as a walking miracle transformed by God, and he will stop at nothing to share this Gift to the world through his music.

Recordings
Verse released his "Five Block Radius EP" in 2004. A follow up came in the form of the 2006 release "Open 24 Hours".
