One of the biggest and longest cliches in hip-hop is the fabrication of the artist’s image to make listeners believe that they came from the streets. With plenty of artists repeating the same act to gain sympathy and an audience, rising artist Marco Cxupreme decided to take a different route.
Marco Cxupreme is a recording artist and owner of the independent record label Live Dynasty Entertainment. Based in Dallas, Texas, Marco has been thriving in hip-hop and has shown to be an incredibly versatile artist, often tweaking his delivery, flow, or how he uses words. For him, music is all about getting the listener’s attention and keeping them hooked on what he has to say.
The artist on the rise came from humble beginnings. Marco was raised in the Pleasant Grove area of Dallas, where he joined the youth choir of his church at a young age. Marco would later discover hip-hop, sparking his desire to build a career as an artist. When he turned eleven, Marco started writing his own songs. Surrounded by friends and family who shared his enthusiasm, he would often freestyle with them, showcasing his progress. Despite the fun that came out of it, Marco found he was more comfortable writing down his lyrics.
In high school, Marco Cxupreme joined a band to continue his music development. But by then, he took an interest in sports and set his goals to become a professional athlete. However, as Marco grew older, he abandoned his athletic pursuits to chase his artistic dreams. His father played a heavy influence in this decision when he passed away. Since he was young, Marco watched his father exhibit creative talent but never capitalized on his gift.
Realizing how fleeting life can be, Marco Cxupreme set out to make the best of his time and introduce himself to the world. In the early years of his career, Marco took the stage name Marvelous MC, singing at the Dallas music scene’s open mics. By 2019, he put together a series of tracks and released them as a studio album called Harmonic Kaos. A year later, he opted to use his current stage name, releasing a shorter version of his debut album.
It was only recently that Marco established his independent record label called Live Dynasty Entertainment, crediting business partner & entrepreneur Marvin Williams for taking an interest in his projects. Marco is joined by his brother, Tru Bank$, with whom he collaborated on a single called ‘Not Even Close.’
As an artist, Marco takes great influence from established names like Kendrick Lamar, Ludacris, and Maroon 5, to name a few. Throughout his career, the hip-hop artist has avoided painting himself as someone who came from the streets. Looking to set himself as an example to his children and the next generation, Marco seeks to pour out music from his heart in a genuine way that can positively influence others.
Marco Cxupreme has set his sights on winning awards to celebrate his hard work, talent, and lyrical genius, with his goals coming to fruition. He plans to spearhead the change in the culture of the music scene in Dallas, owning several businesses and investing in others. Additionally, Marco is determined to use his platform and success to give to charities and guiding the youth.
