Mission Man: Hip Hop Without Ego 

Mission Man has been rapping since 1992, and playing instruments (drums, guitar, bass, keyboard) and producing his own music since 1998.

With over 200 songs, on 15 albums (including two 2020 releases) to his credit, he is prolific and passionate. 

His biggest musical influence is Prince, which means that Mission Man's music defies being in solely 1 genre. 

"Piano But No Microphone," shows Mission Man's improvisational talents on the piano. It is his first album that doesn't feature his voice.

His most recent single, "It's Friday," is an upbeat dance tune about taking risks. He plays the drums, bass, guitar, keyboard and sings on the track, but does not rap.

Mission Man has performed in 18 states, plus at an open mic in Tokyo.

His music was used on the Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon on March 6th, 2018, and he performed live on WNCI in Columbus on their #1 rated morning show in 2007.

2020 sees Mission Man focusing on his YouTube channel, releasing at least 2 albums, and possibly touring in the summer and fall.

"Piano But No Microphone" will be released on Spotify and Apple Music on Friday, February 14th, and "Freestyle Fridays" will be released on Friday, March 6th.

New MissionMan.net design with blog included 


This is my first blog post on the new version of MissionMan.net.  I will post news here, so check back every so often.  If you would like to see archived blog posts, you can see them at missionmanmusic.wordpress.com

My biggest goal for 2020 is to become monetized on YouTube and be making a full time living from my music by the end of the year.  If you'd like to help make that happen, you can subscribe at youtube.com/missionman, and share my videos with your friends. As of the time I'm writing this post, I have 534 subscribers and 1,133 hours of watch time.  I need 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 hours of watch time to be monetized, so I'm getting there, and every subscriber makes a huge difference!

Thank you to all who have subscribed, watched and shared already, and to all of you who will!
