Mark A. Williams Jr., otherwise known as Mickey Factz, is the embodiment of a creative thinker. Standing at a mighty 5’10”, this lyrical juggernaut utilizes his varying personality traits including his overthinking, unique style, and intelligence to entertain and inspire the masses. This Bronx raised emcee derives his stage name from Natural Born Killers starring Woody Harrelson. He is Mickey and he treats Mallory as HipHop. Williams Jr.’s musical origins began back when he was 16, he started releasing music when he was 17, and really took the grind seriously once he reached age 26. Hopeless romantic Mickey can switch it up from bar heavy punchlines to soft R&B and soulful Gospel music.

With his long list of accolades that range from working with Drake, a grammy nomination grammy nomination for writing, signing 3 record deals, 2 national syndicated commercials with Honda commercials with Honda, touring with Busta Rhymes Busta Rhymes, and more, this studious kid who started out making music parodies in his leisure is well worth the price.

Williams Jr. has rocked the live performance stage, the battle rap arena, and now is transitioning into movies as well. The Harlem born Williams has recently been featured in the Netflix American comedy film, The 40-Year-Old Version and intends to expand his talents into acting, openly looking for new roles.

Mickey’s objective was to become a voice. He’s collaborated with superstars such as Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Royce da 5’9”, Black Thought Black Thought, Kid Cudi Kid Cudi, B.O.B., John Legend John Legend and others. The versalite and humble recording artist that is Mickey Factz takes inspiration from Michael Jackson, his loving family, and his life experiences that always push him to create content consistently.
