While Chicago-born rapper/singer/producer, Mari, is new to the music scene, he is already known for his “lyrically rich raps, melodic choruses, and spacey, soulful instrumentals.” 

Mari is currently spending most of his time in the studio developing his sound and working alongside musicians in NYC, including his creative collective, 40 Makers, a group of talented musicians who have an instilled belief in pushing each other to new limits by being critical of community members’ creative work. The collective is currently working on a symphonic composition combining elements of Hip-Hop, Jazz, Indie, R&B and soul.

With two EPs under his belt including 2015's Living Colored, Mari has performed in NYC and at colleges throughout the Northeast.
