Born Marcus Antwan Galloway the artist better known as "Publicity", started writing and recording music as a closeted artist at the age of 15 under the persona of "Yager". Growing up, in probably the most closed minded place in the United States, life has not always been a cake walk for this young man. At a young age Publicity started battling with issues with his sexuality and identity. At a young age he accepted the fact that he was gay. Although he comes across confident and sure of himself in his music, it hasn’t always been that way. Homosexuality is so taboo in South Alabama that it’s almost none existing so living out of the closet, was out of the question.
