Milton Keynes rapper Lucan Mills, 24 has been asked to rap exclusively for record labels such as Warner, Universal and Sony, who work with artists such as Union J, Birdy and Luke Friend, after proving a hit with judges at the Open Mic UK Finals at the Grand Final which took place at the NEC in Birmingham where Heidi Browne who is from Shropshire was announced as the winner. The judging panel for the final included representatives from the three labels as well as Mark Hill, Alex Baker, Gareth Henderson, BBC DJs and Chris Grayston.
Mills said: “There is nothing more I could have wanted from this competition. I just thought I would be able to make some contacts and spread my tracks but to be able to perform in front of these labels after invitation is like a win -taking it to the next level.”
Jeez that must be nerve-wracking! Best of luck to him! Hope it goes well! 🙂
