Entertainer. Host. Musician.

Mikel Neil Jr., better known as HypeManKel or H.M.K, is a graduate of Kansas State University with a B.S. in Kinesiology. While he has always been passionate about fitness and how the body moves, he has also been very passionate about hosting and singing from a young age. He incorporates the principles he has learned through his kinesiology degree in order to make his performances monumental for everyone involved. He relies heavily on his college football experiences to create group cohesion and display his leadership skills while performing for a diverse group of peers. His energetic personality and uplifting vibe is constantly shining through. His attitude towards life inspires and encourages everyone around him to continue on with their dreams, especially during concerts and other events he hosts.

HypeManKel was the beginning of a new era on the radio. He started a “Thirsty Thursday” radio show through the campus channel. He, along with his DJ, were the first students to have a 2-hour radio show and over 10,000 listeners every Thursday. His name is one that is prominent on the Kansas State campus, as he has hosted a large variety of events around campus, and one that is prominent in the state of Kansas. This past summer he had the opportunity to join the “SupaJefe Tour” with Kap G and J.R. Donato. He has opened for an array of artists, such as, Riff Raff, 21 Savage, Lil Uzi Vert, and Cassidy.

As an artist H.M.K merges the old with new. His insightful lyrics and smooth beats create a unique and mesmerizing R&B feel.

This is only just the beginning for HypeManKel. He is sure to be one of the greatest entertainers of all time!
