Michael 'Mind Block' Brumfield Born May 7, 1980 in Joliet, IL. Mind Block has been writing songs/music since the age of 15. Block has a tremendous amount of talent when it comes to song writing and creation. He is among one of the artist I know who has near mastered the art of writing, rhyming and recording. His motive is to catch the listeners attention with every word, style or chorus. In saying this with his motivation and high drive to succeed he stops at nothing to get his name and voice heard. This very talented writer controls the beat with his complex rhyming style leaving no room for hack writers to follow. Also he is one of the original members of one of the largest underground groups in Seattle called 1st Platoon/Alpha P.
