The accomplishment of a goal or purpose defines success. Marcus “Churchboi” Askew’s intention or purpose diverged at an early stage. In high school, he excelled at football and basketball, and he saw a bright future in professional sports. Due to allegations that he felt were unjust, he was temporarily incarcerated in a 6 x 12 prison cell.
In order to pursue Marcus’ other passion, music, his dreams of becoming a successful athlete were soon dashed. Marcus had a natural affinity for music as well as sports. The path to music became clearer for Marcus Askew after enrolling in an all-music school. His success is not a mere coincidence. From his past work with highly regarded artists to his successful career as a producer, there are many reasons to know about this up-and-coming artist, producer, and music mogul.

Marcus Churchboi Askew moved to Los Angeles, California, after the collaboration, where a fair amount of his success is now centered. Networks such as VH1, BET, and MTV have played his music.

“Eventually, I got over what other people think, but it took me some time,” said Marcus “Churchboi” Askew. When your sense of pleasure and satisfaction are derived from comparing yourself to others, you are no longer in control of your own destiny.
