Beyond the critical adulation stemming from his 2013 debut album release of Heroes For Sale is an artist known for his reflective lyricism who connects with his fans through shared struggles, self-discovery, and raw emotion. Ask any fan about Andy Mineo’s music, and you’re likely to hear a story about his life as well. Aside from him just making the usual NYC round of hip-hop battles and performances, Mineo also experienced a spiritual awakening during his freshman year at CCNY. There he discovered communities of other people who were urban and hip-hop, yet also Christian. “The internet made those types of connections even more accessible,” Andy says. “You can discover more niche music and a community with shared values and the same love of hip hop.”
Heroes For Sale debuted at #11 on the Billboard Top 200, #4 on the Top Rap Albums chart and #2 on the Billboard Independent Albums chart. For his next highly anticipated full-length album, Uncomfortable, Andy is exploring a sound that is a tribute to his home in New York City. Ultimately, beyond the empathetic lyricism, colorful storytelling and emotion, Andy Mineo fans can always expect a relatable truth. While appealing to fans of artists like Action Bronson, Joey Bada$$, Macklemore, Drake or Vic Mensa, Mineo’s music stands apart as the only hip hop that weaves weighty topics, truth, humor, and inspiration from all genres of music into one cohesive and excellent work.
