Born Gabriel Miguel Ramos, Lil Miggy Merlo is CEO/rapper/audio engineer originating from Amarillo, TX, currently based out of Corpitos, TX. Ranging from musicians such as Miles Davis, Hendrix, Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers all the way to Tupac, Master P, Lil Boosie, Z-Ro, J-DAWG and Pimp C(along with all the good stuff in between), these are the musicians that Miggy claims to be most influenced and inspired by. "My favorites are musicians of pain and real struggle who transform that pain and struggle into beautiful expressions of art. You can hear it in their voices, whether someone's really been through it, or if they're just pretending for the mics and cameras. That, and also it burns burns burns through the lyrical content within their music."
As your status as recovering addict/two time convicted felon who really is in fact starting from rock bottom, I ask you, Miggy Merlo, what is success to you? " Success to me is people all over my city, state, country, and all over the world listening to the struggles and artistic expressions of a poor Mexican American hustling towards the American dream. That is success to me." Merlo Enterprize was founded by Miggy Merlo in 2015.
