Behind this up and coming hip hop artist's music is a most interesting and surprising background. Long before making it as a rapper, Stud was actually an accomplished baseball player with a bright future ahead, until an injury sidelined his career in baseball. While in recovery mode, he would dabble into making music. Fast forward to 2013 and the Rhode Island native is on tour with his new album Relief. If the name Mike Stud doesn't fascinate you, his music will; The Stud employs playful synth, minimalist beats and his own voice for a very chill, relaxed set of music. You too can experience relief tonight at The Constellation Room.
