Hip Hop Isn't Dead... It Lives In The HOOD

HAILING FROM POE AVE IN NEWARK NJ, MONEY MARK HAVE SEEN A LOT OF THINGS THAT HELP INFLUENCE HIM MUSICALLY. BASKETBALL HAS ALWAYS BEEN HIS PASSION AS HE ATTENDED THE SAME HIGH SCHOOL AS KYRIE IRVING, COREY FISHER, DEXTER STRICKLAND AND WENT ON TO PLAY ON THE COLLEGIATE LEVEL ON AN ATHLETIC SCHOLARSHIP. MARK IS ALSO VERY SERIOUS ABOUT ACADEMICS AND SETTING AN EXAMPLE FOR NOT ONLY HIS TWO YOUNGER SIBLINGS BUT ALSO KIDS FROM HIS NEIGHBORHOOD. THIS IS EVIDENT AS HE EARNED TWO DEGREES FROM UNIVERSITY OF SCIENCE AND ARTS OF OKLAHOMA (USAO); ONE IN ACCOUNTING THEN EARNED SUMA COMME LAUDE HONORS WITH A COMMUNICATION’S DEGREE. MUSIC WAS A GIFT THAT MARK HAD EARLY ON BUT NEVER REALIZED IT. HE WOULD WRITE LYRICS AND SHARE AMONGST HIS FRIENDS WHO WOULD BE WOWED BY EVERY LINE. SINCE WRITING MUSIC CAME SO NATURALLY AND WITH VERY LITTLE EFFORT, MARK DIDN’T LOOK AT IT AS A GIFT AND JUST FOCUSED ON BASKETBALL. MARK BEGAN WRITING FULL SONGS IN OCTOBER OF 2016 AND HAS SINCE GAINED THE SUPPORT OF HIS COMMUNITY. ALTHOUGH HE’S ONLY BEEN MAKING MUSIC FOR A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME HE’S ALREADY HAD THE PRIVILEGE TO SHARE THE STAGE WITH ZOEY DOLLAZ OF FUTURE’S FREE BANDZ LABEL, CARDI B OF LOVE AND HIP, AND TWO LEGENDS IN THE INDUSTRY, FABOLOUS AND NAS. MARK IS SCHEDULED TO HAVE MANY MORE PERFORMANCES THIS YEAR AND IS ON COURSE TO EVENTUALLY BECOME A HOUSEHOLD NAME.
