Originally from Edgefield, South Carolina, Markus has made his mark in the Atlanta music scene by working with various national artist such as Rocko, Future, SZA, J. Cole, Isaiah Rashad, Pusha T, Fall Out Boy, and Young Jeezy. Major first broke into the music industry in 2013 after producing RIAA Certified Gold selling record “U.O.E.N.O” for Atlanta Hip-Hop artist Rocko.
