Lyric Marid, formerly known as Mic Lyric is an aspiring hip-hop artist from Southside Minneapolis. His musical journey began shortly after dropping out of college to help his mother financially. Back home in Minneapolis, Lyric formed and/or worked with multiple groups before finding his place.

The next chapter started when Lyric Marid joined the Mill City Collective; a group of local emcees who worked together to push each other, realizing their power in numbers. Mill City Collective has since developed into an independent record label.

During his time with the Collective, Lyric has taken the reigns as a leader and pushed his and his team's careers to new levels with no signs of slowing down.
