“Iron Mike, Messiah type, before the Christ after the death, the last one left..” – Nas
Artist Jeff McMillans portrait of Iron Mike has hit the spotlight just in time for Tyson’s big debut at the Sundance film festival and the launch of his new site (Officialmiketyson.com) were McMillians piece takes center stage.
Tyson’s new documentary named after himself (“Tyson”) and directed by James Toback, promises to go past the controversy, turmoil and the sideshow aspect of his life and instead show a more sensitive and personal view of the former champ.
Most early reviews have been very favorable of “Tyson”. Jeff McMillan’s portrait has gotten favorable reviews itself from the one and only Iron Mike who purchased the original for himself.
