"I don't want the Cash, I Just Want Your Attention "
Mario Mathurin was Born In St Lucia but was Raised In Rocaway, NY. His parents are both Caribbean. His dad is From St.Lucia and his mom is From Guyana. Right after his move From New York to Philadelphia, he began to fall in love with music. He came up with his rapper name, “Marzs” by taking the first half of his first name and adding a unique ending to it. Marzs started doing music because it was his simplistic getaway and it grew into a passion to drive him to live. First he was just listening to songs and crafting a flow and voice for him, then in high school it started to get more intense for him because he honestly didn’t know where to go with his life. He was still trying to figure out what he wants to do with his life. Sometime in 2009, he began to skateboard. He would just use whatever boards his friends gave him To him. A skateboard is a skateboard no matter what it looks like or where it came from. A couple years later he was going to
military training because he was thinking of enrolling into the air force. He figured the air force wasn’t really for him; it was more for his mom. Then he decided he would start doing things for him, which was music and he continued working on his music. Marzs did a couple songs with a few friends who had a mic setup in their basement. His first recorded song was called “Me and My Skateboard” because at the time skateboarding was such a passionate hobby for him and he was so excited to be able to record. Then moving into 10th grade a neighborhood barbershop opened up called Lb's Cuts. He then went from stopping into to there to just get a haircut and leave; to doing songs at friend’s basement and bringing it back for them to hear it. Lou, the owner of the barbershop and Marzs grew a relationship which pushed Marzs to take his passion for music further and never stop. He progressed to finding a fitting studio where He recorded
a few singles and got recognition off of sound cloud. Not long after getting so involved in his music he actually stopped skateboarding, not because he didn’t love doing it any more but because he didn’t have time. There’s always someone whose actions changed another’s perspective on life. Marzs has a handful of artists who he believes really inspired him with his music, which are Drake, Kyle, Logic, J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Childish Gambino, and The Weekend. They’re his inspiration because as he said, "Them not being afraid to show the world who they are" and neither is he. He’s not being afraid to be authentic in his own music. The main thing Marzs want in his music is for it to be 100% him. Marzs also says “Not only are these Artists real, but they tell a story that paints a picture and that's what I love to do; paint a picture, and that's why I call myself an artist. I love to paint a verbal picture, something you can drift off and see; to see how I
felt when I wrote this song, how I felt when I was making the song.“ Marzs’s plans in the industry is to entertain all the kids that are like him and to tell them there's nothing wrong with being yourself. But mainly he just wants to be successfully heard. “I'm not in it for the money more for the recognition.” Marzs once said. Marzs released his first mix tape in 2012 after 4 years of just doing singles. But 2013 was his big year. Starting in July 2013, Marzs began working on his first official EP that will be available on iTunes. In between working on his EP songs, he also performed at live shows all over the city and also released his first official music video to his hit song "my girl", which in no time, skyrocketed to 68,000 views on YouTube. He is now working with clear channel to get music on radio and have his dreams come
