Meet 13 year old rapper, actor, motivational speaker (& more) Micah “Lil’ Dude” Brown! Lil’ Dude has been pursuing his love of hip hop since the young age of six. Born in Detroit, but raised in my hometown Milwuakee, WI, Lil’ Dude’s passion for hitting the entertainment world hard hasn’t let up, even enduring all of the triumphs and turmoil Milwaukee’s streets have to offer. Lil’ Dude currently lives in Atlanta and has quickly taken the ATL market by storm!
How does one so young maintain his level of committment and passion for excellence? Some speculate that it’s innate, but Micah show’s the world at any and every possible opportunity that he simply exudes entertainment, whether he’s flowing over a hardcore hip hop beat, smiling for the camera at a photo shoot, or wooing crowds of 100’s while giving some of the most heart felt speeches known to man (and boy).
Check out a few excerpts from a one on one interview with the Detroit/Milwaukee/Atlanta kid-legend Lil’ Dude:
Why the name Lil’ Dude:
It was the name people would call me, “This Lil’ Dude is tight”, “This Lil’ Dude can write,” “This Lil’ Dude has
great poetry”, this lil’ dude this, this lil’ dude that. So the name just stuck!
At what age did you realize you want a career in entertainment?
I would say around 3 or 4 years because I was glued to the T.V. set watching re-runs of the Cosby Show telling
my mom that I wanted to do stuff like that…I loved to act, rap and sing. By age 6, my mother had me
performing in front of thousands of people, it has gone on from there.
What makes Lil’ Dude stand out from other actors and rappers your age?
I try to be me, stay positive and do the right things. I don’t try to be like everybody else. Just ‘cause everybody
else is doing something and its working, I’m not going to switch what I am doing if it’s something I don’t believe
in. I guess what I’m trying to say is, “I just try to do me and do what makes me happy.”
Give us an example of a day in the life of Lil’ Dude. What’s a typical day like for you?
Let me See: I wake up, eat breakfast, my tutor comes over to help me with my school work, depending on the
day of the week, I may go to acting or dance classes, to the recording studio, acting club, writing session to
work on new poetry and songs, outside to hang with my friends, basketball practice, to a school to do a show,
it just depends on what my schedule is like.
Who are your favorite entertainers?
My favorite rappers are Ludacris, Eminem, KRS-One and MC Lyte; My
favorite singer is Alicia Keys; My favorite actor is Will Smith.
How are you making a difference in the world?
I started a non-profit called – MIKAH, Inc. (Mothers, Infants & Kids Achieving Heights). I believe no matter who
you are you can achieve great things and I want to show people that through my life! With God I know that
anything is possible!
