Tis’ the Season for all music and movie lovers to enjoy the ‘wrap-up’ of 2011 and look forward to the amazing entertainment that is coming our way in 2012. Over the past few months we have been speaking about Lil’ Mirkk. Readers have learned almost everything there is to know about this true motion picture star and nationally-known rapper whose career has crossed artistic and creative genres all across the board.
From actor to producer to rap artist – Lil’ Mirkk is one of those amazingly talented individuals whose skills know no bounds. And as we learn more about him each and every week, we have all gone in-depth with this incredible singer and actor and learned that he is literally one of the most honest, forthright and candid men that anyone could ever have the pleasure of meeting.
We have spoken about how Lil’ Mirkk was once a gang member in South Central L.A., who ended up surviving a very frightening background and becoming a huge proponent for the younger generation. Reaching out to all young adults and young people who are in dire need of being helped, Lil’ Mirkk has become a truly positive role model for one and all. Not a surprise, seeing as that Lil’ Mirkk professes the good in everyone. He believes in the positive aspects of life and surrounding yourself with goodness and truth on a daily basis.
When we spoke to Lil’ Mirkk about his past, the story was deeply emotional:
Well, unfortunately, this is a side no one really knows about me. I had parents who said, at one time, that they wished I had never been born, and treated my sibling far better than me. So, I was always looking for a ‘true’ family. As I got older, I got involved in the wrong thing – a street gang – where I saw many good young men die. After years of being involved, I had a son, and knew it was time to quit.
I came very close to losing my life twice, but the good Lord spared me. So now I use those experiences and speak to America’s youth about the harm of being involved in gangs. I speak about becoming a part of groups that will get them very far in life, and not put them or their loved ones in jeopardy. No one wants to look over their shoulder everyday. God did not put us here for that reason. He put us here to love one another and to appreciate all.
Truer words have never been spoken. Lil’ Mirkk is immersed in the holiday season, and is extremely thankful and happy for the turn his life has taken. From the movies that we have spoken about that Lil’ Mirkk will be a part of, such as what will most likely become the largest adventure movie of 2012 – Battleship – this true artist will soon become a ‘larger than life’ figure in the world of Hollywood very, very soon.
We have also spoken about Lil’ Mirkk’s reintroduction to the rap/hip hop scene with his new album, WTF, which will be released in 2012 by Def Jam Records! Not only that, but the movie that will be based on the most popular video game – HALO – is just waiting to come “out of the gate” and begin filming, with Lil’ Mirkk playing the main character: the chemically-and-surgically-enhanced super soldier, John-117 Master Chief.
One of the biggest things that people have learned about Lil’ Mirkk is his ability to spark kindness in others. One of the issues that Lil’ Mirkk speaks about a great deal is ‘peace’ – and how this world needs to find said peace amongst each other. Again, another truly honest statement. Lil’ Mirkk is one man who has seen all sides of the spectrum. From when he first began, Lil’ Mirkk was born into a household that included a father who was once a part-time DJ for KJLH, and a mother who helped her son get into the industry. Casting directors began to approach her, as they saw the talent that her son possessed. These professionals would pick Lil’ Mirkk and jobs were booked. From Chico & The Man to a slew of commercials and playing the beloved character of Bionic Boy, Lil’ Mirkk’s younger days were filled with work. Sadly, some of his early story involves these very same professionals stealing the money he made, sending Lil’ Mirkk into a world of pain, hurt and violence.
Deep down, Lil’ Mirkk also had the talent of rhyming and being a rapper grew inside of the young man. One day a substitute teacher saw this talent and Lil’ Mirkk wrote a rap and delivered it in class, spawning cheers from all his classmates. The teacher even said that she saw potential in his work and a possible future in the music industry. When Lil’ Mirkk hit the studio in 1985, he was able to learn and develop his music releasing his first CD, “Seeing is Believing” when he was only a teenager. There are those who said that Lil’ Mirkk would never make it as a rapper, but this talented and extremely strong individual proved them wrong.
We have said over and over again how exceptional an individual Lil’ Mirkk is, and how much joy and kindness he brings to every world he has become a part of. Music, movies, producing, acting – this is a man with a huge heart who wants more than anything to give back to others.
As the holidays come upon us, Lil’ Mirkk wants to reach out to his fans and let them know that he wishes everyone a truly Happy Holiday. And when Lil’ Mirkk thinks about the absolute best Christmas present ever, this is what he would like all of his fans to know:
The best gift ever would be for this entire world to be at peace. No gang wars, no wars in the world, no racism, no sexism…and people should know that women are just as capable as us males, and deserve huge amounts of respect. I send ‘Greetings’ to the Dunn family, and for all – I wish you a very Happy Holiday!. — Lil’ Mirkk
