The Meticulous

How are....YOUUUUU?! I am Mark W. I rap, I'm an on screen personality, a host, I'm a sound engineer (record mix and master), and I shot videos from time to time. I'm a jack of all trades as most artists in this day and era have to be. I'm a advocate for artists, in a sense, where I want artists to be more equipped to handle the lifestyle that they have chosen to dive into. So, you will see me speaking about things that artists need to be aware of, look out for, and be ready to attack in the life stand of their career. This is not to say that I know it all because I am still learning everyday!
