Something new with variety and diversity v.n ., 4. Every action, event, and occurrence that has collectively and ultimately molded rapper/songwriter Marquis Anthony.
Change was something that Marquis Anthony formerly known as Kese Soprano had to get used to at a young age. Growing up in Paterson, New Jersey, Marquis started with a curious and very mischievous attitude which often got him into tight situations. As a youngster, because of his temper issues, he had to ultimately be transferred into different learning disability programs in public school. Due to his mother's situation, Marquis faced his first major change, in moving to Atlanta, Georgia. Maybe it was fate though, as it was here, he began writing daily. His influences were Wu-Tang Clan, 2pac, Notorious B.I.G., Nas, Jay-Z, Redman, Big Pun, and Big L.
Moving back to New Jersey, Marquis began to take writing lyrics seriously; always diverse enough to rhyme about anything relevant in his life. From his love for sports, to girls, to the surrounding violence, to his family situation - the subject matter would change often, but his lyrical ability was always strongly present. Change is something that has followed him his whole life, something he can accept. And because he can’t stop change, it isn't something he fears. Proclaimed by Lady Luck as "an illmatic MC", the Paterson, NJ lyricist is ready to give hip hop the change it needs and has begun to do just that by joining the diverse group "2011 Underground Music Award Winner LiveViaSatellite". Not only did this group create its own genre, combining HipHop, R&B, and Alternative, but they have begun to take their music to a “whole new level” so to speak. This is just the beginning…
