Marcus Attended Lincoln High School in Port Arthur, Texas. Just before finishing high school Marcus was stunned as he learned who his biological father was at age 17. After graduating, he joined the United States Air Force where he was trained in electronics and ended his tour of service after four years with an honorable discharge and an associates degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force. He worked in the semiconductor field after his service and gained a very high income as an electronics equipment technician. Investing his earnings into tech stocks allowed Marcus to taste the good life as he was seemingly headed for an early retirement as his investments grew tremendously.
After the stock crash of 2001 Marcus lost the majority of the money he had earned and then decided to invest the remainder of his money into real estate, which would later be one of the worst mistakes of his business career. After writing his autobiography "The Product" in 2004 and consequently speaking and traveling to schools and churches, and youth groups speaking to youth about staying positive and getting past their hardships, Parker was indicted by the FBI for his association with an Eric Farrington, who was a real estate tycoon who Parker met through an infomercial on late night Television. Parker took a plea bargin agreement and told the truth about what happened, which is what he knew was the right thing to do, and was able to pick up the pieces and restart a promising career that seemed to be over. Marcus continued to record motivational rap music which he learned was very needed through his extensive travels to schools and trying to motivate today’s teenagers with positive messages. Parker currently has 3 books, over 50 motivational rap songs, and over 600,000 views on YouTube, as he now teaches other artists how to sell their music over the internet.
