Mic Jordan – Music Saved Me

Posted By Toyacoyah Brown July 9th, 2014 Last Updated on: July 9th, 2014


For a lot of people, music is therapy. And for youth, it's a way to work through any kind of heartache and turmoil they might have going on in their lives. For Native hip hop artist Mic Jordan, this is no different. He has been writing music about tough subjects such as alcoholism, suicide, depression, and gun violence.

Jordan is an enrolled member of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewas and grew up on the reservation in Belcourt, ND. A self-described activist for Native American rights, he is proud to be a youth mentor for young Native Americans. But his music has a message for everyone, not just native youth.

“My content is for everyone, as I do not have any swear words in my music.” says Jordan.



Here are a couple of recently released songs you can check out. The first one, “Shoot Photos,” deals with gun violence, notably referencing the Sandy Hook incident.

Save me from the people who are crazy/ I just want to save grace/
I develop stills with a happy face/ won't you take me to a happy place/

And check out the catchy hook on “Music Saved Me”:

I feel great, I feel fine
This music changed my life
This music saved my life

As mentioned before, he is also an activist for Native Americans. Jordan recently spoke out about the “Siouxper Drunk” t-shirt incident on BBC News.

You can listen to the full interview below:
