Known to the world as one of the hottest underground American rappers in part because of his back-story. Avalon grew up in Hollywood, California with his heroin addicted father & at a young age began selling pot, a trade he acquired from his mother. Eventually he was befriended by MTV VJ Simon Rex (aka Dirt Nasty) who encouraged Avalon to pursue his passion of hip-hop.
At the time, Avalon was living in a sober living facility & had a strict curfew, so Dirt Nasty passed out Mickey's demo at Hollywood clubs, which helped Mickey develop a following among fans of the LA nightclub scene. Interscope Records soon took notice of the guerilla promotion tactics & signed Avalon to the label in 2005. Through Interscope, Avalon released his now classic self-titled debut album which featured the hits 'My Dick' & 'Jane Fonda.'
