In this episode, we sit down with Chicago native, King Marie! We were able to discuss her upbringing as part of a very musical family, her journey of "paying dues" in the Chicago Hip Hop scene as well as her current successes as a singer and so much more! You don't want to miss this one!
Born on the northwest side of Chicago as Christine Marie, DJ King Marie grew up in a household of diverse musicality. Her mother was a singer in a traveling band, her original reason for coming to the States. And her brothers, both early hip-hop obsessives, were professional DJs themselves from an early age. Combine the family’s professional past in music with a household filled with her mom’s singing of disco hits in the living room and Tribe echoing through the walls from her brothers’ bedroom, and you get a partial picture of where Marie’s taste and hustle came from.
