Andre 3000, Snoop Dogg, Devin the Dude rolled in one....
Bio: Who is marcus.? A phenomenal artist with a distinctly laid back flow from east Memphis, Tennessee. Where have you heard him? Maybe his features on 5 David Banner albums. Or on songs with T.I., Snoop, 3-6 mafia, Jazze Pha, 8ball & MJG, Kurupt, BoneCrusher and more of hip-hop's most notable artists. Maybe sampled on Lil Wayne's ‘The Drought 6,' or on the Malibu's Most Wanted soundtrack.
marcus.[sic] entered the industry as a writer and go-to feature artist with a talent for penning infectious hooks and drawing lyrical comparisons from his peers to some of the the greatest in the game (Devin, Andre 3000, Eight Ball, Snoop...). He's performed across the country with David Banner and Ludacris, Shawnna and DTP on the hugely succesful Chicken-n-Beer Tour as well as across Canada with 50 cent and Kardinal Offishall. He's been on NBC's Carson Daly Show, MTV's Cribs and Nick Cannon's Wildin' Out, freestyled live on NYC‘s famed Hot 97 alongside Fat Joe and Talib Kweli and on the cover of Ozone Magazine, just to name a few. With marcus.' impressive resume‘, he quite possibly may be the dopest artist you've yet to hear of.
This began to change when marcus.' solo debut and certified underground classic ‘Last Nite' was leaked. It hit the internet running, quickly becoming one of the most requested songs on XM radio. To date marcus.' "murzic" has seen millions of plays in almost a dozen countries including The UK, Germany, Canada and as far away as Iraq and Japan.
With a hungry new fanbase and the wind at his back, marcus. is poised to claim the spotlight and once again change the hip-hop landscape with his melodic flows, striking lyrical content, and unmistakeable slang. "We buck out here - matter of fact Memphis was the first place to get it buck..." marcus. explains. "But there is a whole other side to our tradition - that ‘pimpin,' that soul music. That's the side my music is mostly derived from. And that's the next side people need to see coming from Memphis." Against musical backdrops reminiscent of Isaac Hayes, Al Green, Bobby Womack and others in the old-school tradition of his hometown, marcus. has created a sound he describes as "Cadillac/Chevy murzic."
Indeed, it shouldn't be long until the rest of the industry is set on cruise control.
