Speaking to Tubefilter about the two artists already signed, Marcus said: “The two artists we’ve signed, I speak to and hang out with. It’s not just like I’m going to put them out to my following. It’s going to have a family feeling.
“Some of my friends who are musicians are tied into record deals that they hate, and everyone’s being screwed over by record labels,” he added. “So this is really about putting the talent first and getting the best possible career for them.”
