Exclusive Interview with Second Place Winner of The 16 Bar Contest MarLee Hendrixx

1. What Are Your Goals In The Music Industry?
My goals are to make a living off of my talent by generating constant income (from sales, live shows, merchandise, sync royalties, collaborations etc.) while maintaining creative control & integrity over my content. The plan is to inspire other artists and creative individuals to trust their unique vision for success and nobody else's.
2. What inspires you to make music?
Soul music and a super human/ almost un-realistic belief that I can change and empower the condition of the world inspires me to do what I do. I have an undying/ unwavering passion to see change, to see innovation and I enjoy being creative & breaking the mold. Not to mention (and I say this with a humble air of confidence) I know that I'm good at what I do.
3. Tell us about your new project.
My project entitled "Negro Of The Year" will be available Mid May 2017. It is all around entertainment. Expect to hear & FEEL soul music comparable to the sound of the 60's/70's (not Neo Soul, not Rap Soul or R&B Soul etc.) Expect to experience content ranging from humor to vulnerability, to BARS, to aggression, to "trap" to the sound of "raw organic hip hop". This project exemplifies how MarLee Hendrixx can get along just well in this current day of "TURNTUPTIVITY" while also ushering in the next wave. Its not about who rules THIS world , It's about who's going to create the new one" NEGRO OF THE YEAR (N.O.T.Y.) is all about birthing that new idea.
4. What makes you different from other artists?
Witnessing MarLee Hendrixx is more than just a rapper spitting hot bars over a beat. This whole brand thrives on being a unique visual & sonic experience... hence the name "The MarLee Hendrixx Experience".
5. Who were your musical inspirations growing up?
The Temptations, James Brown, Beethoven, Bach, Fu-Schnickens, L.O.N.S. , EPMD, Tribe Called Quest, Pink, Green Day, John Mayer , Frank Sinatra, Lauren Hill, the list goes on....
6. Where can the fans listen to your music?
