My Drift, the debut album under the Mickey O’Brien monicker, departs from his more idealogical work as Kill the Autocrat, making the political personal by rooting it in his own life experience. Produced by Canadian beat-master and MPC button-masher Fresh Kils, with cuts contributed by DJ Uncle Fester, the two previously partnered as The Extremities. My Drift also features guest appearances from some of the most unique voices in Canadian hip hop: D-Sisive, Mindbender Supreme, More Or Les, The Mighty Rhino and Lee Reed, who appears on first single “Groundhog Day”. With My Drift, Mickey O’Brien shows that the genre can grow up and mature but that doesn’t mean it has to be any less gritty or abrasive.
