MIKE POSNER RETURNS TO WALK ACROSS AMERICA IN COLORADO AFTER BEING BITTEN BY RATTLESNAKE
After 3 weeks of recovery, Mike Posner is back to finish his Walk Across America in the exact same spot he left after a life threatening rattlesnake bite that landed him days in the ICU in Colorado. He’s refused to allow the incident to set him back, and will continue to persevere by releasing more new music in tandem with crossing state lines along his journey. Mike used the January video premiere of “Move On,” a track from his current album, A REAL GOOD KID, to announce his 9-month, 3,000-mile hike from Asbury Park, New Jersey, to Venice Beach, California. Watch the video for “Move On” HERE. Since then, he has released two singles along The Walk, “Look What I’ve Become” with Ty Dolla $ign (Listen HERE,) and“Prince Akeem” ft. Wiz Khalifa (LISTEN HERE.)
“Three weeks ago I was bit… by a f***ing rattle snake. Thought it wasn’t gonna be that big a deal, but ended up I was in the hospital… 5 days, 3 in the ICU. Now it’s time to finish my f***ing walk across America. That s***’s not gonna stop me, LET’S F***KING GO.”
