We are living in an age where the younger generation are learning to do everything so they can have varying tools in their toolbox. M4RI describes himself as a visual artist, with experience in creating cover art as well as being a solo artist and a producer.
There is no shortage of talent from M4Ri, as displayed in his music. It doesn’t seem to be often finding people who create their own instrumentals and on the same token lay vocals/rap to them. Artists such as J.Cole and Big K.R.I.T are notable examples of having that dual ability. That is rare air for a musician and something that can shape you as an artist. M4Ri controls his own narrative and creates from within while still being inspired by some of hip-hop’s brightest stars. I’ve had the pleasure of listening to some of his tracks and his sound fits right in with today’s brand of music but varies because he adds his own sauce, something nobody can take from him. From a prodicer perspective, M4Ri is paving his own lane.
His instrumentals have a bounce that will attract new age listeners who are fans of the retro video game style beats attached to hard hitting 808s. With songs like “Kill Me a Opp” and “On Top”, we experience mosh pit styled tracks that requires huge speakers and a large crowd— which I feel his music deserves. M4Ri is on the come up with a bright future, whether it’s as a producer, artist or both. As a new artist on the scene, it won’t be hard for M4Ri to create a following that will be cult-like and eventually, on par with the Uzi Vert’s and Yeat’s of the world. His free flow style of lyricism along with his delivery paints a very vivid picture for his audience.
M4Ri is definitely an artist to look out for in the very near future.
