Buffalo’s Own Mitch SOS AFA Talks His Upcoming Music & What Kept Him Creative Throughout The Pandemic
Mitch SOS AFA is a Buffalo, NY native that is making his stamp in the music industry with his word play and unique perspectives. He draws his lyrics from his personal experiences with serving time in the military, being incarcerated and fatherhood along with his experiences in the streets of Buffalo, New York. These experiences not only shaped him as a person, but as a rapper as well.
His rap name is a mash up of two fictional characters that he grew up looking up to, Money Mitch from Paid in Full and The plug Sosa off of Scarface. Both whom he considers to be bosses. When it comes to his musical influences, he considers himself eclectic with his music tastes ranging anywhere from Beethoven, Mala, Black Sabbath to Tupac and Biggie. With Jay Z, Nas, Lil Wayne and LunchMoney Lewis being the artists who actually influenced him to become a rapper.
When asked what separates him from other up and coming rappers out of Buffalo, NY he stated;
"Besides my incessant, perfectionist work ethic I don’t believe that I sound like any other artist in the industry in this industry. I can rap slow or I can speed it up. If you listen to ADHD you’ll hear it.. I’m all over the place."
Mitch SOS AFA is currently under management with Authentic Empire outta Atlanta,GA. He shares the label with a multitude of artists under their umbrella from Internationally known Foogiano and Money Mu to another locally bred artist, Swindle.
