Mickey Dee was born Michael Barr in June of 1990. By age 13, he was strumming power chords, and writing and singing original songs inspired by pop punk and hip hop, with his Portland band, The House Wives. But a falling out with his band mates led him to a rediscovery of rap music. Since then, he has completed several more underground albums, and has mastered the arts of mixing, producing, writing, composing and recording. When his friends and family heard a rough version of what is now known as 'The BarrCode', they immediately encouraged him to have the album professionally replicated for widespread distribution. Within two years of having carefully studied melodies, and intricate double rhyme schemes, Mickey finally did it. The finished product reveals the edginess and grittiness of this skinny white kid writing to survive his urban high school experience-- in a lyrical oddessy bounced through bumping beats and tunes you can't get out of your mind. It all proves that this self-proclaimed skinny white kid can rap.
