He is blowing up the charts in Philly with his new single 'Nanas' and you will soon be able to see him in select markets on the Chris Brown Fame Tour speaking to our youth. The video for 'Nanas' will be shot withing the next 4 week so we will certainly keep you posted. See YouTube videos below!

Philadelphia has always been known for its raw, authentic talent. Artists that come from this entertainment jewel are adorned by greatness and a stellar work ethic. Such is the case with Philly’s latest and greatest Hip Hop artist, Boone.
Marquis Boone was born and raised in South Philadelphia, PA. After playing college ball at Steven’s Technical College in Lancaster, PA, one would assume that Boone was a sure win for a career as a pro baller. Turns out that they were right, just not on the basketball court. Falling in love with music while in college led Boone to form the hip hop group Fly 4 Life. Although short lived, the experience catapulted the young artist into the next phase of his life as a solo artist.
It all started at a talent show in front of a small crowd at an event sponsored by Sneaker Villa in Philly. He won the opportunity to perform at Unity Day in front of a crowd of 50,000. Here he caught the ear of Wayne “Big Wayne” Montgomery, a bodyguard for Kidd Rock, Black Street and Teddy Riley. This relationship permitted Boone to experience a national tour with Black Street and to work in the studio with Eric Williams of the group.
Being inspired by his contemporaries such as Jay-Z and Philly’s own Beanie Siegal, Boone continues to align himself with people that see his greatness. Palmieri Jeans, a Philadelphia based clothing company, met the rising star and he can now be seen in some of their branding and promotional campaigns. They in turn support his shows and other musical efforts.
Last summer Boone’s club banger “Club Like” featured hip-hop super star Waka Flocka and had a big impact on dance floors and radios across the globe. He has followed suit with his latest single “Nanas” ft Gillie Da Kid, another base filled, catchy head knocker that is currently climbing the charts as well as taking the clubs by storm.
As Boone’s music and likeness continues to expand beyond his hometown his golden personality and relentless talent continue to lead the way. Soon you too will be able to find him on a radio, a dance floor or a stage near you.
