Note

Marlon “Marvalus” Sousis is more than just a local underground rapper; he is a movement. With a cult like following in the Upstate NY area, underground hip hop scene, and 3 classic mix-tapes under his belt; Marvalus is an artist who is not only ready to take the next step, but thirsty to build a global empire atop his already cemented local foundation.

The 27-year-old Upstate NY native’s musical roots run deep. As a lover of hip-hop since early childhood, he began mastering his craft in neighborhood freestyle ciphers with friends and other local emcees. At an early age Marvalus was holding his own against older, more experienced rappers, always standing out. It was obvious to those who knew him that he had a talent that surpassed that of his peers. His involvement in music however, would take a back seat to sports through his teenage years as a standout point guard for Rensselaer High School. This never stopped him from making music.

After years of providing for himself in whatever ways he could, while only flirting with music, Marvalus, prompted by his friends and family, dropped his first mix tape in 2007. Titled “2 Marvalus 4 Wordz”, It introduced a young, raw, unpolished emcee to the game, announcing his arrival with the hit single, “I Can’t Lose.” Despite local acclaim, it would be 2 more years before Marvalus would release his sophomore effort, titled “I Get It In vol 1” featuring the classic “She Text Me.” Once again received well locally, it was the album’s success outside of Upstate NY (sold over 1000 mix tapes while on a spring break trip in Florida) that made him finally realize his potential to make a living doing what he loved to do. However that realization was short lived, and was still not enough to finally convince him to put all of his focus into his music. With his third effort, “I Get It In vol 2,” things really began to fall into place. Performing at various local venues, and any showcase he could find, Marvalus hit a high point in his young career by opening up for GOOD Music artist Big Sean at a show in Clifton Park, NY.

That high however, wouldn't last long. Marvalus would soon face some major life decisions. In July 2009, he became a father. With the birth of his first born (a beautiful baby girl), and his career not being where he wanted to be, Marvalus decided that his music would have to take a backseat to his other priorities. He figured that he would put his dream on hold, and focus on a more "realistic" way of providing for him and his family. That decision became solidified in May of 2010, when he found out he had another baby girl due later that year. With the reality of him having to get his life in order, his entrepreneur spirit and passion for arts would eventually lead him to enroll in barber school. And in September of 2011 Marvalus opened "Broadway Barbershop" located in Rensselaer, NY.

With a successful business up and running, and life seemingly heading in the right direction, everything was starting to fall right into place for Marvalus. But even with his new found successes, he still felt like something was missing. He decided to do some soul searching. And what he found was that not only was his passion for music still alive, it was burning stronger than ever. Armed with a whole new outlook on life, Marvalus decided that it was finally time to do what he's always been called to do. He decided to put his focus back onto his music. With a new found purpose fueled by a his desire to make a difference in the world, Marvalus now knows that the only limits we have in life are the ones that we place on ourselves. And with that belief deeply entrenched in his spirit, Marvalus has decided that its finally time to turn his music dreams into reality. It's now or never.
