This was the first track that was recorded for this particular project in the second half of 2012. The track talks about making the decision to take on hip hop whole heartedly without any doubts of whether I should be here or not.

“ I’m here backstage contemplating on my next move /
This world crazy, especially wit niggaz like me dude /
Sacrificed my 9 to 5, Living to the day I die /
This here the prelude the main event gonna be history live /
This year the coming age – metaphors is blades, spittn real /
You would think I’m like Reeves I took the pill / …..”

I started rapping from the age of 10 when my older brother, Arthur, introduced me to it. It’s been on and off since then up until the team decided that we were going to do this full time and make it work – that decision was made in 2010 during the time Chub Heightz started work on his 3rd Letter Music Mixtape. It was also the same year that I left my job in order to focus more on my career as an artist and entrepreneur.

This track is a statement of all this and more, as it comes from a very real place and real life situations.

Below is the full audio track. Hope you enjoy it for those that haven’t downloaded the mixtape.

MMR commissioned for NO SLEEP BW REMIX

Recently, Chub Heightz was commissioned to put together a Botswana Remix for Reason’s hit single “NO SLEEP” featured on Tibz “Tebello Motsoane” All Love Album that was recently hosted on the June/July issue of Hype Magazine. This comes after the success “NO SLEEP” (RSA Remix) that featured the likes of L-Tido, Tumi (previously of the Tumi & The Volume), Ginger Trill, and Moneoa.

The BW REMIX features VH, Sasa Klaas, Touch Motswak, and Chub Heightz. The combination of artists led to a dope outcome and thus far has received good reviews. Here are a few words from Chub Heightz regarding the remix “Well, I personally think the beat is what brought everything together as well as the concept, No Sleep. These are artists that everyone knows to be on that grind 24/7 so it was only right that they jump on it. Everyone delivered dope verses and still managed not to sound like the other. Much respect to them”.

Shout out to Tibz & Reason for giving the Marked Men team the opportunity to bless what was already a hit!!!

Make sure you check out Reason’s new single with Dj Switch “Switch” and go get yourself a copy of his latest album “Reason A3D”.
