MARZ MUNNY a.k.a. “Mr. Chow” is an up-and-
coming rap artist from Brooklyn. He's been writing
rhymes since he was 14 years old and accredits his
love of music to his mom and dad. “There was always
music playing in my house growing up. All different
types, from the Isley Brothers and Earth Wind & Fire
to the Notorious B.I.G. and Mary J. Blige.”
Music has always been a huge part of his life.
Being raised in a rough part of Brooklyn, MARZ has
seen a lot and done things that he isn't proud of,
which eventually led to him being incarcerated.
But instead of conforming to life in prison, his passion
for music kept him moving in a positive direction.
He used the time wisely, writing rhymes and rapping to
anyone who'd listen. “My love for music kept me going
when I felt like giving up. Even people telling me, “Yo,
you sound good man, you're bars are tight!!”, helped push
me through the darkest days. I know music is what I was
put on this earth to do.”
It was there that he developed his alter ego, “Mr. Chow”,
which signifies his desire to “eat”. In other words, attain
wealth to feed himself and his family. In prison “chow
time” is breakfast, lunch and dinner...and his drive to make
it in the music business had him starving.
MARZ returned home with that same energy and
got right to the music. He has released several singles
on SoundCloud, including the popular collabo with fellow
Brooklynite, FreshBeatz, titled, “10nb” (10 n better).
And “Survival”, the dark, soulful tale of MARZ’ struggle to
make a change in his life and those around him.
Spit over a smooth, mid-tempo base beat, “Survival”
speaks to the masses of young brothers fighting to
create positive opportunities for themselves. He describes
his music as aggressive and fun. “Some songs have a more
serious tone but I also like to make fun music that keeps
people smiling and dancing.”
The self-described laid-back gangsta is passionate about his
music and the affect it has on his listeners. “I’ve gone through
many phases in my life and I'm still transitioning into the best
version of myself. I have definitely elevated from who I used to be.
Things I did before don't interest me but the music NEVER
left me. I want to make good music and spread my good energy
all around! There’s no better feeling than watching people enjoy
the music I've created.”
And his creative juices are certainly flowing as he works on
his debut mixtape. It’s sure to be a crowd-pleaser! And be on
the lookout for the video for “Survival” dropping this summer
on YouTube and WorldStar HipHop.
MARZ MUNNY is definitely headed for the stars and beyond…
with his music as the soundtrack.
