12 years old and already killin’ em! As Featured in Vibe Vixen and Sister 2 Sister Magazine, and well past 100k views in one day at midnight August 3rd, Hip Hop sensation Young Marqus (YM) dropped his highly anticipated music video for “Merk Out” featuring rapper/actress Teyana Taylor (G.O.O.D. Music, Madea’s Big Happy Family).
With popular flicks like Step Up Revolution currently killing the box office in the dance genre, the “Merk Out” music video rides that same ever-popular wave of illustrating the fusion between Hip Hop and street dancing. The video takes on the same effect of a feature film with its storyline surrounding a chase scene inclusive of Young Marqus and some of his friends breaking into a warehouse to ‘Merk Out’ until the cops come knocking. With its high flying dance stunts and crazy production “Merk Out” is sure to bust the gates open on the YM and Youtube audience.
Currently, Young Marqus is opening for R&B heavyweights Mindless Behavior on the #1 Girl Tour. YM is charting his journey on the road in a series of Video Diaries that he’ll be releasing every few days to his fans on both his website and Youtube channel. Already the response has been positive and their popularity ever growing.
Be on the lookout for YM’s mixtape “H-Town Sponsor” to be released August 15th. It’s the follow-up to last years smash “Respect Me,” featuring Trevor Jackson (Disney’s “Let it Shine”) YM’s debut album will hit stores later this year.
