Old Soul. New Vibes. Chicago-born Mari, already known for his “lyrically rich raps, melodic choruses, and spacey, soulful instrumentals,” made a splash in Fall 2016 after his Caribbean carnival-themed "Paper Run" cracked Spotify's US & Global Viral Charts. Mari is currently spending most of his time in New York City, developing his sound in the studio and working alongside artists including NanaBcool, Simen Sez and Matt FX. 2017 proved to be another strong year for Mari with a slew of collaborations, a slot at the A3C Festival in Atlanta, and a spot on Comedy Central's Broad City for his song, "On Fleek." He was most recently featured on American Teen producer UNO Stereo's "KEEP UP," described by Complex as "genre-bending" with "nostalgic flourishes."
