Mic Hogg was born Kristopher Micheal Hogge in 1983, the year of the Hog, in Phoenix Arizona. At 21, he set out to take the world by storm... through hip hop music.
He started almost immediately on his first album in Flagstaff with his new friend Zack,(Znd of the Dez Ratz) in 2004 ,under the name MC Anonymous. He freestlyed over Z's beats for a few months in the summer, then he moved from Flagstaff to Phoenix. Kris stayed in Phoenix for a few months then returned to Flagstaff 05'. Upon his return he met Troy, DesTroy, and began the transformation from Anonymous to Mic Hogg. Everyday free-styling over ill ass cuts from roommate Kyle, DJ ENRMS.But like all good things in life; shit happens.Troy got arrested and Kyle moved, so Mic Hogg set out alone back to Phoenix, again. That was the second time Mic met up with Zack in Tempe in 06'. The two of them started making the 'Radio Riot vol. 1' mix tape. In 07' Phoenix hip hop artist Glad2Mecha (Jeremy Wells) called him a "mic hog" in a recording session on 'Year of the Hogg' (for Sunken Ships also produced by Glad) and being that is was in fact his middle and last name, it stuck.
Well that was 10 years ago! Since then, Hogg has worked with many different producers including Konsent, Span Phly, Steven the Intern, C-Phase, ZND, Foundation of the Drunken Immortals, Beta 7 of the Orchestra Crew (Glad2Mecha), NON Verbal, DJ Kool Zic, Midwest Monopoly, MG The Visionary, Destruction Production, GMG of the Dirty Rats, Kip Killagain, Cool Handz Luke, DJ oo1, Elijah Kamp,Jurasick, etc...he is now doing some producing & mixing himself!
Over the last 5 years Mic has rocked tons of shows and shared stages with MURS, Eligh & Amp Live, Lucky I Am, Blackalicious, Vast Aire of Cannibal Ox, Grieves and Budo, Mr.Lif, Mickey Avalon, Hieroglyphics, One Be Lo and various other underground artists. He also has been the host & co-host of a several open mics and poetry slams.
Currently, Hogg is 30 yrs old and has just released his 6th album, Givin' It All, with producer friend Justin Stump (DJ oo1) and finishing his 7th project with DJ Cool Handz Luke "Breathing Sunshine EP".
Kris also has 2 kids Gabe and Grace and lives in Flagstaff,AZ.
