Inspirational Hip-Hop artist Michael D. Coleman Jr. (aka Phresh Air) was born on July 30, 1990. Raised in Capital Heights, Maryland he found his niche as a preteen, rapping on corners, school hallways, and in the studio. He was accustomed to centering his rhymes around futile things like bragging about how "dope" he was and his ambition to make money. Things would soon change when at the age of 16 he listened to a Christian Rap cd called The Incredible Walk by Phanatik (of the Cross Movement). Inspired by the artist, he made a commitment to follow Jesus. He soon came to the realization that he could use his talent to do more than boosting his ego.
Over a decade later, Mike has released 2 mixtapes, 2 solo albums, and 3 compilation albums. He has performed on countless stages both nationally and internationally. He's had the privilege of opening up for big acts such as Da' T.R.U.T.H., Eshon Burgundy, and Trip Lee. He knows what it's like to be overlooked, rejected, and depressed. Hip-Hop is his outlet and the platform he uses to help people encounter the same freedom he's experienced through Jesus Christ.
Mike and his wife Monisha currently live in Seattle, Washington. They are focused on pursuing the call of God on their lives as creatives and making a positive impact on the culture.
