Marcus Manchild drops his latest mixtape, Turbo Life, the warm up to what is slated to be his biggest project to date …
As the new school trailblazer for Houston’s burgeoning Hip-Hop revival, Marcus Manchild is on a mission. The skateboard swag rhymespitter grew up on the Southwest side of Houston, raised on local celebrities like Slim Thug, Paul Wall, Chamillionaire, ZRO and Lil KeKe. By 16, Marcus began making his own music, influenced by Houston greats, but geared to make his own mark with a new style.
Drawing inspiration from the likes of Andre 3000, Mac Dre, Ludacris, and Twista, Marcus began honing his skills and embracing new facets of rhyme. He boost in his lyrical prowess reached Texas-based indie label AMG (Authentik Music Group), who readily signed the rising star. His first project under the AMG umbrella was The Preseason mixtape, followed by the monumental SPACED OUT. It was then that Marcus sealed the deal with his signature abstract (“out of this world”) style that earned him the name the “Space God.” Both projects included collaborations with Soulja Boy, Yo Gotti, Bun B, Chamillionaire, Slim Thug, J Dawg, Killa Kyleon, ZRO, Paul Wall, Brian Angel (Day 26), and more.
Marcus previously set the stage with Preseason 2. He solidified himself in the industry, while he was a part of the Smokers Club Tour. He shared the bill with the legendary Method Man, and then new comer Big K.R.I.T., Curren$y and Paypa. Both his talent and level of lyrical ability are undeniable. There aren’t many who’ve garnered the amount of respect that he has from his peers, and at such a swift pace. Beam forward to the year 2014, and it’s evident that Marcus has already set the tone for the year with “Turbo Life.” Turbo Life has production from up and coming producers the Track Whippaz (Bro Dini, Big Bay, and Hak), and a feature from his airwave dominating teammate Boston George. Marcus plans to follow up his most recent release with Free Yo Mind. Rather than slack off, Marcus remains assiduous, and amazes his fans with what he continues to accomplish.
