Myles Teague

 

Myles Teague is a Chicago based hip hop poet and producer that aims to make spiritually and socially conscious beats and rhymes. In a time when people are being heavily oppressed for their religion, race, or way of life, it’s important to make the people aware of their God given right to free will! He takes his influence from contemporary artists like MF DOOM and Yasiin Bay (Mos Def) as well as traditional poets like Rumi and John Milton. Peace and blessings!
