Interview with hip hop artists Marrae
How did you come by your stage name?
It’s my original name. It was unique enough to make it my rap name.
When did you discover your love for your craft and what made you realize you wanted to pursue a career in it?
I discovered my craft in my senior year of high school, I was 18 years old. What made me want to pursue music was my uncle.. he motivated me to get started. His death was a sign on how short life is.. life is meant to be lived, fears are meant to be conquered my uncle taught me that.. his death also pushes me to this day. I can hear him till this day.
To what or whom do you accredit your sense of style?
My style is a mix of all of my favorite artists. Tupac, DMX, Drake, Lil baby.
On your current project, how did you come up with the concept?
On all of my projects, there’s a deeper meaning with the title and the artwork. The next EP called FACE OFF, The meaning behind it, is me ripping my face off..( All the insecurity’s, fears, and self doubt all being ripped from my body.) underneath it all is money. Meaning once you stop the negativity.. it’s only positive.
What are some of your greatest challenges, and what is your greatest attribute when it comes to your work ethic?
One of the greatest mountains I had to climb was being homeless and making sure my music never slipped off. It was rough experience but in time it all got better with consistency, hard work, and persistence.
Are you the best at what you do in your opinion?
Yes. It’d be foolish for me to think otherwise.
What are your plans for the near future?
Take over the globe.
Is there anyone you’d like to thank, any shout outs?
I’d like to thank all of my friends that helped me out but the 4 most important is Gavin, Jabari, Xay, and Smalz. Without these 4 my music wouldn’t be as amazing. So thank you all and s/o to the realist
How can fans find you?
Apple Music YouTube Deezer… etc just by looking up MARRAE you’ll find everything.
What suggestions do you have for other artist like yourself?
Don’t fucking quit.
