North Carolina bred Marquis Musiq is breaking down the walls of the box he’s been put in.
Musiq grew up in a little town called Kings Mountain, with his single parent mother. His father was absent. Marquis has always considered his music to be just a part of hip hop. He places himself in the same category with artists like Kendrick Lamar, Jay Z, J. Cole, etc. The only difference he says is that his music has a biblical message behind it while the others don’t.
