Arthur Marks 3rd Is 25 years old from West Philadelphia.
What do you do for a living?
For work , me and my big bro “friend” build customize furniture. We build everything from bedframes to baby-cribs to club sectionals. On my free time or after work I’m either writing or in the studio.
Who are some of your biggest influencers in your industry?
Some of my biggest influences in the industry are Nicki Minaj , Meek Millz , Joyner Lucas , Kanye West , Busta Rhymes , Rakim… just to name a few.
What’s your Biggest accomplishment thus far in your career ?
My biggest accomplishment in my career so far was actually going to the studio and laying down my first track. That gave me the drive , motivation and push I needed to take my talent seriously. I always knew that I am musically inclined but when it came to my vocals I always doubted myself. When I put my first track out “bootyclap” it got so much great feedback I haven’t stopped making music since. Me going to the studio that day and recording has been the best accomplishment not only in my career but in my life!
What legacy do you plan on leave behind?
The legacy I would want to leave behind is for others to know to always stay true to yourself , to never give up on yourself and to always PUT YOURSELF FIRST. In my raps I talk about my life , my sexuality , prison , growing up in church the whole nine. Nicki Minaj once said “ Life is a movie they’ll never be a squeal “ and I got that tattooed on my body because it’s a daily reminder to never give up & that tomorrow isn’t promised to do whatever makes you happy NOW , don’t wait!
Where do you see yourself in the next five years?
In 5 years , just being honest , I don’t know where I see myself. I use to have a answer to that question but now life has shown me that God is in control not me! So yes I feel as though I am destined for greatness with my musical artistry however in 5 years I could be the “best new artist “ or I could be just a one hit wonder. The world may never know ! What I do know is that , the world will know my name and my music will change the world.

Promising New Artist Taydem Shoesmith To Release Debut Single On New Year’s Eve
The singer-songwriter, actress and performer will release the electro-pop single “Are You Clapping?” just in time for New Year’s playlists.
With an affinity for music from a very young age, Taydem Shoesmith has been exploring songwriting for quite some time. Having multiple IMDB acting and composing credits to her name, Taydem is now diving into the pop music market with her debut single, “Are You Clapping?” The electro-pop/dance anthem, written by Shoesmith, comes from a very personal place; one she hopes will connect with listeners:
‘I think this is my first song that was written out of anger,” Taydem recalls. “I remember writing in my lyric book about how frustrated I was with the people around me and society in general. We think we have to act like the perfect person when we talk to people or go on dates. We’re kind of setting ourselves up for failure because we’re acting like someone we think they want to be with. I mean, it makes sense because in the past, relationships weren’t about love or connections. They were basically just business deals. I guess I just got to the point of wondering why I was doing this. Why were people telling me to talk more, smile more, flirt better, don’t be boring, etc, so often, when it came to relationships. Because not only was it exhausting to keep that facade up, I was also disappointed in myself for basically faking who I was, just to catch some guy’s attention. So through this song, I’m saying that I’m done putting up a show. Having confidence in the choices we make is very important, no matter if it’s in relationships, jobs, or life in general. And that is the message I hope people will take away from this song.”
From singer-songwriter to pop and alternative, Taydem’s music is a unique amalgamation of different genres and influences. Her musical inspirations include Michael Jackson, Rascal Flatts, Billie Holiday, Sabrina Carpenter, Camila Cabello and more. Her acting debut was in 2020, when she was cast for a role in the short film “In the Dark.” She has been cast as the lead in multiple films, and has created music for films as well; one of those being a theme song for a short series, “Blood Sisters.”

Pop/R&B Singer Jen Ash Overcomes Toxic Relationship With Cathartic Single
Jen Ash is a Top 5 UK iTunes charting artist and former pro basketball player. Her latest single is “No Lover Lover.”
Relationships are sometimes distractions, and they take us on a path that is not ours to take, and we lose focus of what our true desires are.”
— Jen Ash
With her single, “Crush On You,” former pro basketball player-turned-R&B Singer-songwriter Jen Ash exploded onto the international music landscape. The single leaped into the UK iTunes R&B Songs Top 5, while gaining 29K Spotify streams. All totaled, the Lebanon-born, France-raised artist has over 5K monthly Spotify listeners and over 100K plays on the platform.
Now, Jen Ash is releasing her most personal track to date. “No Lover Lover” is a cathartic song for Jen, tackling an issue that is sure to hit home with many.
“I’ve experienced a very toxic relationship, and I did not realize it,” she said. The wake-up call was when he did not show up at my first show, nor was he supportive of my art, being jealous of my creativity and not being enthusiastic about my success. He was trying to discourage me every step of the way. I let him go and honestly… I felt miserable. I really thought I couldn’t live without him, but I discovered that it was actually quite the opposite. The doors started to open for me as soon as he was gone. Relationships are sometimes distractions, and they take us on a path that is not ours to take, and we lose focus of what our true desires are.”
She further added, “Breakups end up being blessings most of the time. ‘No Lover Lover’ is about me feeling like a weight has been lifted. [I am] feeling finally free, finding myself being totally fine on my own.”
