"Free Agent - Mark McLaughlin"

For former DJ Mark McLaughlin, life behind the wheels of steel was pretty darn good. But because of McLaughlin’s prodigious dance steps, not to mention his stylish attire, his cousin urged him to join his group, Ready and Willing, as a backup singer five years ago. “My friends were getting into trouble at the time,” he says. “So I thought I should invest in something worthwhile.” McLaughlin, a mailroom manager during the day, thrived in the group despite having no prior singing experience. After three years, he went solo. And so far, it’s turned out to be a wise choice. On “Brooklyn,” from his self-produced album Mark My Words, McLaughlin pays homage to hip hop heroes and reminisces over summer park jams in his street-hardened baritone. “I went from being a Dalvin in Jodeci to becoming K-Ci,” he says. How the tables have turned. - By: Jayson Rodriguez
