Our Meet the Crew series takes it next stop at Marquis Williams. Marquis has shown a lot of the office what dedication looks like, both in and out of the workplace. He's on top of the warehouse workflow and heads to the studio to work on his music every chance he gets. A simple glance at his social media says it all; every day, he's posting inspirational quotes that range from philosophers, friends, to even himself. He's a diligent worker, and most importantly, always reminds everyone to just be themselves. Or, should we say, "Bhee You."
I work in the warehouse at Steadfast Brand. I'm the guy pulling/packing orders and wholesales to make sure it gets to people safely and in great condition. I keep track of our inventory which corresponds with making sure the right people know about our most popular items.
I was working at Jimmy John's when I came across an ad for Steadfast Brand. I had an interview and I did what I had to do. I think the fact that I was in the military gave me an advantage.
I'm often writing or in the studio when I'm free. It's gotten to a point where I'd figure out whole verses down at work and have to write it down immediately.
I have to listen to Norah Jones before work. She sets the early morning mood for me... That's bae.
When I first started working here everyone always wanted me to rap or play them some new music. One person in particular took it too far, Postell. He'd walk around singing my songs but switch the words around to make it sound like it was his song. He then started throwing hints that he wanted to battle rap. He recorded "56 Bars" which turned out to only be 12 bars. Everyone thought his diss was ok... Until they heard mine. Long story short I destroyed him and haven't heard him rap since... RIP Lil Postey.
I pretty much rap about something happening in my life and the beat sets the mood on what type of track it turns out to be. One of my producers would send me a beat and my mind just gets to running. Depending on the circumstances I write my songs before heading to the studio to make it a masterpiece.
Yes, I'm actually working on a project called "Mood Swings". It should be done before the year is out.
My ideal vacation isn't much of a vacation. I would like to leave the United States and head towards Europe to tour doing music. I love seeing different cultures and their reaction towards hip hop.
BheeYou (my rap name) because all you have to do is be you.
I love the fact that I get to see where my hard work goes and the fact that I'm actually watching a brand grow to be something great.
