Q&A | MaRLo “Everything Mean Nothing” (Interview) [@ikilledmarlon]


We get a lot of new music from underground artist all over the map. From Pittsburgh to Texas, LA to Detroit, Canada to London. Sometimes we are late with the post but we look at music as being timeless. Even though its a rapid flow of music due to the internet and social networks. In our mission to expose the world to new dope and extremely talented hip-hop artist. The Prez Show Live Family will contact new artist that catch our ear and attention. This new artist that grabbed our attention is MaRLo.  We got a chance to do a quick Q&A with the Floridian.MaRLo is cut from a different cloth. In a world of duplication he brings passion and substance. Using his lyrics and hooks to get out his message about the evils of the world.

Q: What part of Florida are you from?

A: I am originally from Hollywood, Florida but I am currently living in Orlando, Florida as an undergraduate student at UCF studying Secondary Mathematics Education.

Q: How long have you been rapping?

A: I began rapping in late 2009 recreationally but then became serious in mid 2011.

Q: What inspires you the most when you’re writing music?

A: The hope of touching peoples lives.

Q: A couple months ago your stage name was Common Knowledge but now you’re going by MaRLo, why the name change?

A: I couldn’t identify myself with the stage name “Common Knowledge” anymore.

Q: Have you received any resistance from stereotypical blogs or music outlets based on your spiritual tracks?

A: Yes, all the time. Websites and blogs tend to call my music too honest not fitting within the mainstream format of their programs.

Q: Listening to your OG Bobby Johnson Remix allowed me to see what your mission is. Do you think others will catch the “religious bars” or will the “turn up” allowing the instrumental to blind them?

A: This is something I struggle with every time I make a remix to a secular song and in all honestly I would hope that the listener would take the time to grasp the message but ultimately that is completely up to the individual themselves.

Q: When can we expect a mixtape or album from you?

A: An EP Sumer 2014

Q: “Always chasing after money don’t you see that evil?” Since money obviously isn’t something that your chasing, what are your goals in your music career?

A: Outreach to as many people as possible.

Q: At the end of the day if you could use one quote to describe what you want your legacy to be, what would it be?

A: “Just because you have faith in God doesn’t necessarily mean you love God.” –Marlon Vincent
