Penn State student, former football player-turned hip-hop artist, Mike Wallace (@Mike_Wallz) is off to a fast start to the Spring semester with a scheduled performance at the State Theater on January 18. Mike Wallz, as he is affectionately called, is best known for his role in Primary Element and opening for Big Sean at Hoops Madness this past fall. The concert will signify the live debut of his first solo album, “The Free Life.”
“We just rap about what’s applicable to us, like I’m gonna rap about Nikes, and wearing cool snapbacks, cause that’s what I do…and College rappers make music that’s for college kids. That’s a great market, and that’s fine, but I wanna rap about stuff I like and stuff that’s appealing to me,” Wallz told us in our last interview.
The event is part of a formal “Night At the Theater” which will be also include performances from Penn State DJ, The MXBB (@TheMxbb) and Columbus based alternative rock band Boomerang Kid ([email protected]).
Tickets are priced at $1o and available online or at the State Theater box office.
