Collegiate baseball player turned professional rapper Mike Stud is trying to live up to his stage name with the release of latest album Closer - double meanings for days. Stud's rapping career started as a joke but has turned into a real attempt at making it big. In the early days, Stud focused a lot of his lyrics on what he knew best, women and sports. Stud still keeps sports as a main theme in his music today, mostly in his remixes. Stud's evolution as a rapper is most noticeable in his flow, where he's picked up a much quicker pace than his earlier works.
