Athletic Mic League

The origin story of the Athletic Mic League begins right here in Ann Arbor, as the future MCs met each other at Ann Arbor Huron High School in the mid-90s. Initially rhyming for their own entertainment, they quickly began developing 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 returned to reaffirm its status as Ann Arbor legends. In 2020, AML held an epic 4-day retreat in Richmond, VA at the home of 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 gathering, the members have reconvened for three additional retreats. They have also released their first collections of music since 2005, Playground Legends Vol. 1 and Vol. 2. Come experience their influential hip-hop at an A2SF stage this summer, rising up again in the very place where it was formed.
