Micah DuBeau is an Iraq War Veteran and American Hip Hop artist known as Motor Mouth.
Currently, he lives in Los Angeles, California where he feels privileged to have mentored under some of the biggest names in the Hip Hop Industry worldwide. (Tommy Coster, Producer of "The Marshal Mathers LP", "Get Rich Or Die Tryin'", and Co-writer for "The Real Slim Shady" as well as Darren Vegas, Former Head Producer for "Death Row Records", to name a few).
Between April 2019 - May 2020, "Back In The Day feat. Marissa Delmonico", was played on heavy rotation at KISS 104.7 FM as well as heard on Power 104 and about 350 radio stations worldwide. In April 2020 Motor Mouth was MTV-USA Artist of the Month.
Leading up to the summer of 2022, Motor Mouth released 2 LP's and 5 Singles produced in their entirety by Multi-Platinum Producer and hip hop icon, Darren Vegas. Shortly after releasing his latest single "44 More Nu-Mixxx", Motor Mouth then diverted his focus entirely dedicating himself full time to artist development in preparation for his 3rd and most anticipated album yet, "Based On A True Story".
In the interim of his 3rd album being released Motor Mouth teamed up with both Rick Ross and Sean Kingston for features. The two singles will be releasing in August & September 2023, respectively.
Shortly after his birth in Honolulu, Hawaii, Motor Mouth moved to Seattle, WA where a 19 year old drunk driver with a suspended license and no insurance would hit and kill both his mother as well as his little brother as she was 7 months pregnant with him at the time. Due to the driver being the daughter of a high ranking police officer, the case was sealed and she walked with not even a misdemeanor. No money would be paid to help compensate the funeral or the loss of their lives.
This caused a domino effect resulting in his spending the better part of his life growing up with zero stability in and out of different homes, attending new schools up to 3 times each year, and rising above the system while battling abuse, neglect, and abandonment. Music would then come to the rescue helping him process a lifetime of obstacles needing to be conquered.
Determined to leave his past behind, Motor Mouth moved out at the age of 16. By age 17, he would be the youngest soldier at Ft. Benning, Georgia enlisted in the US Army Infantry alongside one of his closest and longest standing friends Cory Clark. He went on to successfully complete a tour in the war in Iraq in 2004 as a .50 CAL gunner and Dismount Machine Gunner on a QRF Team (Quick Reaction Force) receiving numerous badges and medals for his service. A Combat Infantry Badge and Global War On Terrorism Expeditionary Medal would be two of the many. His time in the military came to an end in 2008 when receiving an honorable discharge at his contract expiration.
His best friend turned brother, Jason Foster, met him at age 18. Shortly thereafter Motor Mouth found he had also been taken in by Bob, Tammy, and Jon Foster as one of their own. Without fail, they have continually stood by his side through every bit of the good and the bad thrown his way and In Iraq alone he received more care packages and letters from the Fosters than everyone else combined. Needless to say, the Fosters will always hold an unmatched position in his life, heart, and family.
Acting and film have always been his favorite hobbies outside of music and he can often be found working on various projects for photography/videography when not in the studio. He also believes strongly in investing in the lives of underprivileged kids and loves animals.
