Lyric Marid, formerly known as Mic Lyric is an aspiring hip-hop artist from Southside Minneapolis. His musical journey began shortly after dropping out of college to help his mother financially. Back home in Minneapolis, he formed LFT (Live for Today) releasing multiple mixtapes with the group. The next chapter started when Lyric Marid joined the Mill City Collective; a group of local emcees who worked together to push each other, realizing their power in numbers.

Recently, Mill City Collective has since developed into an independent record label. During his time with the Collective, Lyric has released multiple projects including the very personal album Jaycen's Lyric, along with the recent R&B inspired EP Cakin' Season. With the new label behind him, 2016 looks to be a big year for the budding emcee.
