Bio

.. …Men Lie Woman Lie but Hip-Hop is Eternal….

Born and raised in an environment where the average black middle class family was happy but striving for more, still had to heat up the kitchen with the oven, and cereal with powder milk was the real Breakfast of Champions…

A graduate of Enloe High School in the early 90’s, he went on to accomplish 3 years of college on an academic scholarship at one of the most prestigious historical but under-rated black universities in the country “Shaw University” with a double major in Business and English.. Also @ the same time working at all the hottest clubs in the area as the “MC” or Master of Ceremony, made him more aware of what could be and was preparing his soon to be stardom…soaked up every piece of the game that was given to him or just listening in on 3 am sessions that went on after the clubs closed–also MC’ng several shows, he went to different areas around soon to grow and know he was ready for more…

The 1st year of college, the birth of “WilliaMarkus Music Group” came in the vision of this young black entrepreneur. Specializing in promotion, artist management/ development and image counseling. Also off into the fashion industry, he is designing and creating his own clothing line by the same name as the company. W/M
He was born a star waiting to shine, anticipating the day to make his family proud, knowing one made it from Raleigh North Carolina…All and All… success, determination, blood sweat and tears and loyalty go hand and hand when dealing with a persona like his. Shining longer than 15 minutes, in the pursuit to provide for his family, are the 1st and 2nd on his list of accomplishments for the future
