The Awakening of Hip-Hop
IT STARTS WITH –
An endless passion for music, for voices,
for discovery, for people, for life.
Martyrman was born in New Orleans, LA on July 23. He started rapping at the age of 10. After moving to Baton Rouge, LA he recorded his first single at the age of 16. At 20 years old Martyrman signed his first record deal with a local label. Even though the project never reached the masses, his clever yet thought-provoking lyrics began to earn him notoriaty.
After a few years of honing his skills, Martyrman returned to the scene in 2014 with his highly anticipated album ” STRANDED”. The album was met with critical acclaim with over 1 million youtube views and changed the way Southern Hip Hop is viewed.
2016 promises to be even greater with his acting debut besides Oscar winning Matthew McConoughay, Mahershala Ali and Gugu Mbatha-Raw in “Free State of Jones” set to be released worldwide on June 24th.
His new album will also be dropping this summer entitled, “The Revolt”. It can only be described as no holds barred. Martyrman has left it all on wax this time delving into America’s current racial tensions, oppression, destruction of hip hop and the hope of black progression as a whole. He is giving us life and love while leaving us thinking of ways to revolt against the system that is determined to keep us down.
As a man, actor, rapper and artist, Martyrman is a breath of fresh air. He’s original in flow and creative with his concepts! He is the AWAKENING OF HIP HOP. He’s what we’ve been missing in current music, waiting and yearning for.
Look for the video for the first single “Shots” on June 3, 2016.
He is the AWAKENING OF HIP HOP.
