Mark 4 Death (M4D)
Straight out of Mudville (Stockton), Northern California, Mark 4 Death was born on August 13, 1977 and was raised between Stockton and San Francisco, Ca. Experiencing a poor rough childhood and the typical fast street life, M4d felt that growing up was hard, cold, and empty – quoting he had nothing to live for, but everything to gain.
Eventually he found a way to channel his energy through a pen and a pad. He found his passion through a culture called Hip-Hop. His father was a martial arts master, actor, and poet. From those three, M4D’s music became his poetry. Inspired by artists like Kool G Rap, Dr. Dre, Wu Tang Clan, Run DMS, James Brown, Killah Priest, and even Beethoven, M4D took the next step from writing his thoughts and emotions on paper to expressing these words through a sword, otherwise known as a microphone.
M4D brings his own styles to this society of hip-hop – with a thug attitude and a deep intellect. M4D feels that he has wide versatility in his music and it can relate to anyone. 13 years of marking on walls, spinning, scratching records, break dancing, writing and spitting rhymes, M4D has lived every aspect of hip-hop. He says he has experienced a lot in his life.
“I thank God. I shouldn’t even be alive, but I am… and there’s a reason.” He lived it, now he will tell it.
This is his story: MARK MY WORDZ!
M4D has won Editor’s Choice Award in 2004 for Outstanding Achievement in Poetry (presented by poetry.com and the international Library of Poetry). Writings include “Queen of My Heart”, “State of Mind”, “Voices in My Head (Part 1 and Part 2)”, and “Why Did U Have 2 Die”. His poetry can be found on Poetry.com (www.poetry.com).
“First and foremost I want to thank GOD the most high – for being my inspiration, truth and light. I want to thank my queen for being by my side through hell and heaven – for being my guardian angel and bringing me peace. I want to thank my family – Love Ya’ll! – I wouldn’t be here without you – thank you for believing in me. Speaking of people that believe in me… I want to thank all the Artists who are featured on this album [Mark My Wordz] to help make it what it is. Big props to all the people who have been supporting me through my journey, especially the man who made this project happen – Fouche, thanks for having my back, for being patient and for working really hard – We made it happen!
