Brandon Harris: What originally sparked you interest in music? How did you choose Underground Music?
Marpo: To be honest with you? I saw a movie with Tupac called Bullet when I was 13 years old. Ive checkd who is this guy Tupac and found out hes a rapper. Thats when I started rappin.
Brandon Harris:Your song Tak Kdo, sick as hell what was your thought process there? What were you thinking when you wrote it. It honestly has to be in my top 2 favorite songs ever?
Marpo: That song is mostly about me tryin to get on the top of the game. How alotta people tried to fuck me over. Tried to make me not succeed. So its my 10 years in one song. How hard it was. And I made it. Its probably one of my best songs too bro, to be honest with you.
Brandon Harris: What is being a rapper in the Czech Republic like?
Marpo: Well its funny. So many czech rappers are influenced by all those gangsta rappers from the states. Because i visit the states twice or more times a year. I know what it is. I aint no gangsta, I never been and never will be. I am an ex muay thai fighter. That’s what I am. So if I say Ima knock the shit out of you? Its true. But all that bullshit about sellin dope and shit, that’s bullshit. So there’s not so many rappers that are fo real over here.
