Michael always had a passion for music at a young age. He was really into rock and loved writing poetry and decided to try out for a band but that never happened. In 2004 Michael moved in with his best friend John Castillo and his brother David Castillo. John also a hip-hop artist himself asked Michael to try out rapping. At first he really wasn’t sure about it but liked the idea of playing with words and writing. John found a studio to rap at which was ran by a producer who called himself D-Mac and his label was called Platinum Trax Productions. At first it looked very promising but it all came to a quick end and in 2006 it was over and all of his music was gone with the label after it was shut down. In 2011 Michael was locked up for Attempted Armed Robbery. Released November 20,2013 he is back with a new sound to remind people that real good hip-hop does still exist. Loyalty over Royalty will be Coupe Devilles first Ep. With edgy lyrics gritty wordplay and a unique style of his own he looks to change the game and prove there are still great artists left.
