PG County, Maryland born, this New York rapper is ready to make a name for himself with his genuine creativity and soulful sound. Taking down expectations and genre boundaries, Marques Martin initial offering experiments with the nature of rap, writing a track that’s utterly relevant and wildly bold.

The new track blends his vast influences in his first single, and makes thoughtful acerbic social commentary, proving him to be a definite 2019 one to watch.
