Rad Summer welcomes Jarrett Michael to the squad with his new release What A Year
Jarrett Michael drops his Rad Summer debut with What A Year, an ode to the many changes that have inspired the young rapper.

In his new video for “Me, Myself, And All My Friends,” he mobs around the streets with his posse. The tint throughout on the visual feels like you’re in a dream of his, which would fit the theme of peering into his mind. “Me, Myself & All My Friends’ music video gives you an inside look at the brewing hip-hop/arts district in my city of Indianapolis,” writes Sirius via email. “Crawl through the crowded streets with me and my team of miscreants, savants, punks, poets, addicts, prophets and painters.”
