Local mic controller Mr. Miranda isn't one to mince words.
If you don't believe us, check out this little trifling he recently laid down to the head-nodding beat of Nicolay's "Tight Eyes."
"You're not a man homeboy, you're a mannequin," Miranda quips. Sharp words that aren't meant for anyone specifically. "Nah, (it's not meant for) no one in particular, more like a warning shot to anyone who even thinks of coming at me in a negative way."
"I'm a huge fan of Nicolay and so this beat of his for his song, "Tight Eyes" has always been one of my favorites, and so it felt right to lay somethin' down to it," he says.
Mr. Miranda and fellow Phoenix emcee Random recently teamed up to drop The Memorandum last month and will be hitting the road later this month in support of the album. You can catch 'em next on January 15, at The Clubhouse in Tempe.
