Mike Stud, whose real name is Michael Francis Seander, Jr., is the star of Esquire Network's reality docu-series "This Is Mike Stud."

Mike Stud is a Duke educated, former All-American baseball player who unexpectedly turned to music after an injury robbed him of his lifelong dream to play pro ball. Now, he can be seen at the top of the Billboard and iTunes charts as he continues to build his brand in the most unconventional way — as an unsigned artist, heavily relying on social media to build awareness, sell tickets and engage with fans around the world. In just five short years, he has garnered over sixty million views on YouTube, released three #1 Hip-Hop albums on iTunes, and headlined three notoriously "wild" national tours. However, and perhaps most impressive of all, Mike has done it entirely independently — no labels, just him and the variously talented "cast of characters" that live with him, work with him, and ultimately rely on him for their livelihood.

Mike Stud's music first received notice with the rap single, "College Humor," in 2010, which he recorded as a joke. The video was a huge viral success, racking up over 1.5 million views. His music career took off quickly: He released his first mixtape, "A Toast to Tommy," in October 2011. In May 2013, Stud's debut studio album, "Relief," debuted at 109 on the Billboard 200 chart and peaked at 55. But the biggest move from the former pitcher-turned rapper came when he hit No. 1 on Billboard's Rap charts with his 2014 2nd album, "Closer," which received over 1.4 million YouTube views for the title track. His YouTube channel has passed 135K subscribers; he released his third album; and in January 2016, he embarked on the forty-city Back2You Tour, the largest of his career, which will be documented on his Esquire Network series.
