Angry Mob Music Group Signs Exclusive Worldwide Co-Publishing And Administration Deal With Hip-Hop/R&B Duo MIKNNA

Los Angeles, CA, August 21, 2019 – Angry Mob Music Group, an independent music publisher boldly serving songwriters, composers, artists, and creatives, has signed exclusive worldwide co-publishing and administration agreements with producer/multi-instrumentalist Ken Nana and rapper/vocalist Mike B. of MIKNNA, a Los Angeles-based melodic hip-hop/R&B duo. The administration agreement encompasses their catalog and future releases as MIKNNA, while the co-publishing agreements cover their solo releases and share of songs they have individually written for other artists.

MIKNNA was born out of a collective love for blurring genre lines, experimenting with retro-futuristic sounds, and finding solace in nostalgia. Officially joining forces in 2016, the self-described “Hall & Oates of Hip Hop/R&B” has since discovered their strength as collaborators, going on to release their introductory EP, 50/50 (Side A), after experiencing early success through Spotify’s Fresh Finds playlist. In 2017, the duo embarked on their first headlining U.S. and European tour, honing their live performance. They also lent their respective talents as songwriters/producers to other artists, including the Anderson .Paak-fronted group The Free Nationals, as well as Terrace Martin, Far East Movement, and Big K.R.I.T. Their vintage, mood-ring aesthetic allows MIKNNA to create a lush, swirling soundscape, full of contemporary rap stylings, retro ‘80s analog production, and soulful melodies, encouraging listeners to indulge in feel-good escapism. MIKNNA released their debut album, Escape, in early January 2019. They began releasing a series of new singles in July 2019, with “Summertime Shine" [https://song.link/us/i/1470009996] and “Mirage" [https://song.link/i/1473633495] already available. Their next track, “Cold as Ice” feat. Quincy, will be released on August 30.

“MIKNNA is an exciting addition to the Angry Mob family,” said Marc Caruso, founder of Angry Mob. “We value creativity and unique voices within the music community, and MIKNNA’s brand of futuristic yet somehow nostalgic hip-hop/R&B is sure to turn some heads. We can’t wait to help them take the next step in what will undoubtedly be a very innovative career.”

“MIKNNA shares a special dynamic in their production style and songwriting that really stands out from the rest of the pack,” said Angry Mob A&R Director Ralph Torrefranca. “They are at a pivotal and creative time in their career, and we’re happy to be their creative partners in their musical journey.”

“A-Mob is more than a publishing company, they’re family,” said Ken Nana of MIKNNA. “They’ve showed us support since the beginning of MIKNNA, years before we signed with them. They never cared about numbers and popularity, it’s all about the music. There’s nothing like working with a solid team of authentic people that are going to have your back through thick and thin.”

“The good folks over at Angry Mob not only are incredible at what they do, but more importantly are family,” said Mike B. of MIKNNA. “You can feel the love and energy they put into their people from the top down... and that’s all anyone could ever ask for.”
