Micall Parknsun is a complex man. This loving husband and proud father of three is a self-confessed Hip Hop junkie, recalling the Golden Era of US East Coast Hip Hop as the catalyst for his musical endeavors.
Micall (pronounced Michael) aka Parky rose to infamy with the release of his critically acclaimed debut album ‘The Working Class Dad’ in 2005 which featured anthems like ‘So What’ and the Beat Butcha produced ‘I Don’t Wanna Stay Here’. His growing reputation was further solidified in 2006 with the release of ‘The Interview Mixtape’ and the anthem ‘Dunya (My World)’ the lead single from Jehst’s production album ‘Underworld Epics Vol. 1.’
Since then Parky has firmly established himself as one of the most exciting and dynamic MC’s to emerge from the UK with his captivating stage presence, unmistakable rugged voice and effortless flow.
Parky is currently working with a few different people from our local scene, so perhaps expect a showcase of some of that material as a prelude to the main set.
