Athletic Mic League
Genres: Hip-hop, Rap
The MCs of Athletic Mic League met each other at Ann Arbor Huron High School in the mid-90s. Initially rhyming for their own entertainment, they quickly developed their skills into full-blown careers in rap and hip-hop, eventually spawning several classic albums as well as numerous solo careers. After an almost two-decade hiatus, the group is officially back to reaffirm its status as Ann Arbor legends. In 2020, AML held an epic 4-day retreat in Richmond, VA at the home of AML member Wes Taylor. The retreat represented not only the resurgence of the collective, but also the power of their 25+year bond of brotherhood. On the strength of that bond and their longtime commitment to innovation, the Athletic Mic League reflected on years of their impact and influence, both as a group and individually. Since that initial retreat, the members of AML have come together for two additional retreats. They have also released their first collections of music since 2005, Playground Legends Vol. 1 and Vol. 2. A2SF is proud to welcome back this influential hip-hop collective, rising up in the very place where it was born.
