Born May 23rd, on a hot summer night in the 80’s at Mercy Hospital in Miami, FL, Marley “Crookz” Brooker the founder of The Relentless Empire is a living example of the maxim “it ain’t where you’re from, it’s where you’re at”. The Miami-based musician, poet, producer and former University of Washington student has lived everywhere from the East Coast to the West Coast to the Dirty South.
Throughout his travels, Marley’s passion for music grew as he was able to relate hip hop to life’s struggles and lessons. With family in the Bahamas and stints in Miami, New York, New Jersey, Boston and Seattle the cultural influences on the young entertainer have been varied and deep and show themselves in the flexibility and variety of his style. For Marley, his music is heart felt, vibing only what’s real and true regarding life, love, the struggle and the block.
Relentless Intent, Marley’s music group, is set on raising awareness of outstanding issues facing everyday people in these trying times. Bringing people together as a whole and improving society are high on R.I.’s list of things to do. As MCB explains, “There’s plenty of things going on that are unspoken that society as a whole turns a blind eye to and I feel like It’s my job to help people wake up, realize these things, and help them contribute to fixing issue’s plaguing society and humanity.”
Raw. Riveting. Revolutionary. Are U Relentless?
