Annex Magazine: When you’re not your alter ego Marz Leon, who are you?

Marz Leon: I am still an Alien.

AM: When you’re writing what comes first? Song titles, melodies, music?

ML: Melodies & Lyrics. Title comes after its all put together.

AM: In recent days you called out the rappers and their music, “i wish one of you big time rappers would talk about some positive real shit instead of the same bullshit that is irrelevant in life.” What change would you like to see in the future?

ML: I would lauhve to see artist really understand how powerful their positions really are in the Musiq game and start making a positive influence on the world and the children of our time. Stop making people think that money is all that rules the world along with materials. They can be so quick to teach people how to disrespect one another rather than to show people that lauhve does still exist and that respecting one another can really bring people together to become a stronger nation then we are now.

Speak on reality, but don’t influence to club your life away, drink, do drugs, and just focus on making money.

Those things are temporary pain relievers for the moment. Smoke weed, chill and show people that Lauhve and happiness is forever. Inspire kids to grow up to make a difference in the world. Not become followers.

AM: Let’s talk LONER. How is this track in particular close to you?

ML: All my songs are really close to my heart.

But L O N E R is my most powerful song off the EP by far. Every word has a strong meaning to me that I have gone through in life. 

Embrace your lonesome. 

AM:  You’re donning a wire crown in LONER’s official music video, what’s the concept behind sporting the crown? 

ML:  The crown I made is to resemble my position in this world as a Queen.

I am still alone without a King and know how power my worth and place is in being a Queen.

What’s a Queen without a King?

A Queen.

AM: You have a blatant sense of style that’s all your own how would you describe it?

ML: Alien.

I just wear whatever makes me feel good. 

AM: Who are your style icons?

ML: I always looked up to Aaliyah & Pharrell growing up. Then I just listened to my brain of weirdoness, (<—- that’s my new word) and do whatever I feel.
