"Marc Dub Is Coming Into The Scene At The Right Time"

Skilly: How were you able to start your journey in the entertainment business? Where did this all start?
Marc Dub: It all started in the military for me actually. I used to freestyle to pass the time while in boot camp for the US Navy. It quickly became apparent that I was a lot better than the majority of the people around me who had been doing this sort of thing for a few years. Eventually I purchased some portable recording equipment while out to sea, set up a studio on the ship, and recorded my first CD right there on the ship. And the rest is history.
What is the greatest challenge you face in today’s entertainment business? How do you overcome them?
The biggest challenge I believe I’m faced with is just the overpopulation of artists. The market is so filled up with people trying to break into the business that it’s hard to differentiate yourself from the masses.
How is the music scene like in your hometown? What do you like about it and what don’t you like?
It’s hard to say being that I’m currently living in Atlanta, GA instead of my hometown of North Augusta, SC. I think the music scene back home at least at the time I left was really beginning to take shape. There is definitely a lot of talent and I think it’s just a matter of time before someone sheds light on the area.
Where do you think the future of music is going to be? How do you feel artists can be more a part of it?
I think the future of music is bright. It seems as though lyricism and storytelling and wordplay are all making a serious comeback and that for me is exciting.
What advice can you give to other upcoming artists and musicians trying to achieve success?
My advice to upcoming artists would be to stay humble, stay motivated, and stay working. There will always be someone more talented than you, but hard work beats talent. Stay the course, continue to work hard and fight for your dream; keep the right people around you.
What inspires you to write your next song?
I draw inspiration from everyday life. Humans are complex individuals with different emotions and feelings. We all fight our own battles and have our own victories and defeats. Mine can be completely different from yours, but when you hear something that relates your situation to mine it resonates and that to me is inspiration in and of itself.
What are the steps you take to make a song?
Once I hear the production, I listen to try to get a feel of where I would like to go with the particular verse or hook. Then after I figure out what I want to talk about it all just kinda flows out from there.
What do you think makes a great song?
When you can perfectly capture the moment of emotion and put it into a song. Then when it hits the listener’s ear, if they can identify with that emotion and continue to feel it each time they listen to it as if it were still their first time hearing it, then you know you created a dope record.
