Marley Hendrix (better known as Terry Gibson or Riley G) is a hip-hop artist born and raised in the Golden Triangle Area of North Mississippi. Being around music at a young age, having a grandfather that played the piano, as well as the majority of the women in his family were choir voices (his uncle Bobby Crawford worked with Keith Sweat unbeknown to Marley till years later). Influenced by greats such as Al Green, Johnny Taylor, Bob Marley and Jimi Hendrix, to more modern acts like Tupac Shakur, UGK, Outkast, and Snoop Dogg (Snoop actually being a childhood nickname dubbed to him by his uncle for the way he recited his verses so well).
Marley would often sneak out after bedtime to partake in the freestyle cyphers with his older cousins. He would go on to write and record his first song at 13 showing early promise as a lyricist however having an unorthodox but melodic delivery. Relocating to the 757 area on the East coast he would go on to write and release his 1st single Hopeless Romance in 2018 under his own independent label alongside co-creators Gladney King, and Uncle Blu.
Receiving warm reception on the underground hop scene for his unique sound, southern accent, and lyrical focus, his music has been described as having a surprisingly West Coast vibe with subtle brashness. His 2nd single H3ll Yeah, released on New Year’s Day, is a provocative club banger with an interesting plot that Marley sets up nicely with his lyrical approach. 2019 looks to have some great things in store for this artist also adding acting to his repertoire after acing an audition for well-known director Jeff Sievers and company, Marley is currently in talks with a talent agency to perfect and push his new found talent.
Recently dropping his 3rd single Astonishing, in March, it seems to be as the title says, with Marley unleashing a barrage of word play and metaphorical punchlines. With the About Time mixtape in works set to drop in May, and having his EP Vision set to be released on July 9th, his birthday, look out for this new artist on the horizon. If you would like to join his wave all music is available on all platforms.
