The art I create is the feel good 'soul-hop' that is sorely needed in today's main stream music industry. Smoothly balanced soulful instrumentation combined with fun, energetic, uplifting hip-hop lyrics, created for people of all ages, genders, races and backgrounds, makes for great AWNPOYNT music!


Since 2003, Marcus AWNPOYNT Hayes has been the leading mc, co-producer & promoter for the popular regional hip-hop group FLAWLESS. Based out of Annapolis, MD, they would brake down barriers and become known in their city by earning a reputation for their mesmerizing performances, captivating lyrics, engaging personalities, and phenomenal production from beat-maker iLLMEASURED. Behind AWNPOYNT's relentless leadership, he would help create an annual city wide event titled 'The FLAWLESS Music Festival' which celebrates unity and peace in communities. While earning positive attention, AWNPOYNT and FLAWLESS eventually would obtain performance slots for national hip-hop artist Lupe Fiasco, Method Man, Rakim, and Slick Rick. Today, AWNPOYNT has gone solo and has recently released his first solo mixtape 'A New Hope' (with production help from iLLMEASURED) to gaining positive feedback.
