So tell us a little bit about yourself?
– Well, I been living in Cali now for the last 5 years. I’m originally from Florida and in 2009 decided to hop a gray hound to L.A. About 6 months into living out here I found myself living out of a car. It was pretty crazy at first (actually I don’t recall a moment when it wasn’t lol). I had no idea where to park and didn’t have much knowledge of the area. It wasn’t until last year in October that I finally moved into a place. So for about 3 and a half years I lived out of my car all throughout the Los Angeles area. During that span THANK GOD I was able to save up enough money for studio time and put together a mixtape titled Who Is Marcou. The album left me pretty broke afterwards, but it was definitely worth it. I’m now signed to a management/production deal because of the buzz my mixtape generated. GOOD TIMES!
What inspired you to start singing?
– I would have to say imagination. When you write a song you can go anywhere and be anything. I grew up an only child so I was always trying to find clever ways of creating something out of nothing. Music’s always helped me go outside myself.
Were there any hard challenges you had to face in the industry?
– I’d have to say the hardest challenge is financially. It takes a good amount of money to fund a promising project.
What ways have you found was the best way to promote yourself?
– I found indirect advertisement is one of the best ways to throw yourself out to possible fans.
What would be your most memorable moment while singing?
– I once performed in the middle of the street and almost got hit by a car. lol
Are there any goals that you would like to achieve?
– I really would love to make at least one timeless song. A song that will still be played 20 years from now. A couple other goals aside from music would have to be starting my own healthy food business as well as becoming more involved in helping abolish human trafficking.
What can we expect from you in the future?
– I’m working on my next project as we speak. The title is still in debate but I’m leaning toward “Drawn In”. The album completion date is somewhere around Fall/Winter of this year.
Are there any upcoming albums you are releasing?
– As of right now “Drawn In” would be my only upcoming album, which should have 15 plus songs on the record.
What do you think of FKN Famous?
– Well, I follow you guys on IG and I have to say, I love all the pretty faces and dope whips you upload on the daily. Not to mention your site is amazing.
Any last shout outs?
