Mike Posner Background
Posner isn't the only one from his Detroit neighborhood that made it to the big time. His hometown friend, Big Sean, also
had high hopes for his music career, so Posner decided to become his producer. Posner produced and added vocals to Big Sean's
very first mixtape, and years later, both of the men have reached extreme commercial and critical success in their musical
Posner soon moved out of Detroit to attend Duke University, where he worked hard to balance his undergraduate
studies in sociology and business with his love for music. He started recording mixtapes in his dorm room, producing one under
the name, "Mike Posner and the Brain Trust". Posner decided to release this mixtape for free on iTunes U, a specific channel
designed only for educational content. Somehow, Posner was able to slip his mixtape into iTunes U, and it immediately skyrocketed
to the number one position on the iTunes U chart. It's no surprise that his songs had great appeal to college students, as
they referenced fraternity culture, dorm life, and the challenges that comes with being a young adult.
While he may
have not made any money from his free album, Posner did get a record deal from it. He signed with J Records in 2009 while
he was still in his junior year of college. Even though his musical dreams were right in front of his face, Posner decided
to finish his college education and receive his degree. After studying and attending classes all week, Posner would hit the
road to tour on the weekends. He also worked on recording new songs for his debut album, 31 Minutes to Takeoff, which was
released in 2010. That same year, he made it onto the lineup at Bonnaroo and Warped Tour, two of the biggest music festivals
in the country.
Since 2010, Posner has become a constant presence in the music industry, producing music of major mainstream
artists as well as creating music of his own. He ended up graduated Duke with a 3.6 GPA, a record deal, music festival invitations,
and thousands of fans all over America. One thing is for sure—Mike Posner did not waste any time in college.
Mike Posner has had some major hits over the past several years, including "Cooler Than Me", "Bow

and produced songs for other artists, including Big Sean, Justin Bieber, 2 Chainz, Wiz Khalifa, Snoop Dogg, Big Time Rush,
Nelly, Pharrell Williams, and Austin Mahone. These collaborations and writer credits have made Posner one of the most in-demand
artists in the music industry, and his career is only just taking off.

book smarts. He graduated high school with a 4.4 GPA and graduated from Duke (one of the most prestigious universities in
