Just because he's looking out for his own interests right now, however, doesn't mean that he's forgotten about the Fresh Breath Committee. There's a master plan in play, he says, that's always been the impetus for Fresh Breath, and that's for each member to carve out his or her own lane while ultimately attracting more exposure for the entire group. "The last time I performed with Fresh Breath Committee was at least a year ago," Charles notes. "To make a comparison, look at what happened with Eminem and D12. When Eminem popped, it was Eminem, and then, when he could, he went back and brought his boys. That's what we're really looking at." For now, though, Charles is focusing on his solo career. After The Sing Off wrapped, he returned from Los Angeles and began to compile the scant rhymes he was able to write during the process and put them over Hi-Res's beats for Lift Off, the aptly titled Myke Charles mixtape. "Coming off the show," he explains, "I didn't want anyone to think I went anywhere whatsoever, so I started working on Lift Off." At the behest of Hi-Res (aka Nick Torres), who handled the beatmaking, Charles enlisted DJ Chonz to bring the whole project together, which turned out to be a great call. Chonz's imprint on the project is evident, as each track is woven perfectly into the next and then mixed to perfection. "There's a reason why Chonz is the OG in this city," says Torres. "He's really the best at what he does."

Charles is likewise striving to be the best at what he does. "My goal is to be the premier artist in this state," he says. "We're thinking globally, but you gotta put home on your back first. This time next year, I should be the one in this city." That's as safe a bet as any. As those who've seen him perform can attest, there's no stopping Charles when he steps on stage. The way he carries himself, it's as though he's already made it, and he brings some serious substance to his rhymes, which are almost always dripping in swag — nothing bashful about it.
