What it do?! My name is Micah Calvert, better known as M.C. QBall916. My new album, "Greater Than", will be available this fall, if not earlier... You may have seen me perform at one of the hundreds of shows I've been involved in since ekin2K and I started 916groove.com, or acting the fool on YouTube... The single below will be for sale here shortly (Can't Be Broke", featuring Pete Space of HGL / Soundcap Audio and ROB ROY of California Bear Gang!) I also appear on Elevator Music presents Unification, with a multitude of other talented folks... available at www.elevatormusicentertainment.com, Amazon.com, Napster, and Shockhound.... M.C. QBall will now write about himself in the 3rd person (sounds more official!).
M.C. QBall916 is one of the two founding members of 916groove.com! Since ekin2K did all of the heavy lifting on the tech side, QBall assumed the role of spokesperson, promoter, and the guy who tells you nicely when ekin2K thought you were wasting our time.
(lol) Time is valuable to M.C. QBall, whom has been rapping since before his adult life began, and really would prefer to do little else... of course,as an independent artist, you must also function in many other roles to be seen and heard. QBall put on his promoter hat to organize many shows on behalf of 916groove.com, as well as many other local (Sacramento) artists, as well as hosting 916groove.com's THE SESSION, a weekly show featuring top quality local artists as well as visiting talent from around the world. In addition, QBall played journalist for 916groove.com ON THE SPOT videos, interviewing artists and fans at myriad events.
M.C. QBall is a versatile emcee, comfortable performing at scheduled appearances, jam sessions, open-mics, cars w / p.a. systems, drum circles, e.t.c., and QBall can freestyle for hours, write songs for the lab, or freestyle a song that you still don't believe was a freestyle (over 200 to date). QBall is known for his high-energy, borderline slapstick performances, mixing memorized material, freestyles, and alternate personalities in the same show. He's also known for his freestyle comedy videos w / ekin2K. Yes, the characters are all DUMB! We know! That's the point! You can watch me in various videos all over 916groove.com, I appear in over 100 of them to date.
QBall is bringing THE SESSION back to Sacramento, Ca this year, watch for showdates soon. In addition to his new album, QBall is currently working on a freestyle project w / Young G, and a Sacramento-based mixtape featuring emcees and producers from the Macramento area, as well as participating in Elevator Music's "Anywhere in Cali" tour..... QBall is hungry.... QBall stops writing now..... 916groove.com !!!!!!!!!!!
