Daily Inspiration: Meet Marko Cervantes

Today we’d like to introduce you to Marko Cervantes. 

Hi Marko, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I started making beats my junior year of high school because I remember hearing tags of producers like Metro Boomin and Murda Beatz and just fell in love with the art of making beats so I want to try it so I got my mom’s computer and downloaded FL Studio and just fell even more in love with making beats that I then got my own computer and decided to put my beats up on YouTube. I then started to create harder beats to where my older friend by the name of Brian told me to send beats to an upcoming artist at the time by the name of “Hotboii.” After that, I built a relationship and had my first placements drop with Hotboii, and shortly after I met my manager and still manager to this by the name of Saint Paul, since then, I have been working at different day jobs while making beats until I found out I co-produced the song “Computer Murderers” by Lil Durk and knew it was my time so I quit my day job and now am all in. 

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Not at all, I was the laughing stock of high school when I showed people my first songs and beats, and even when I started to hit numbers, I was struggling to balance school with music and dealing with any legal issues in the music business side. 

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I create beats. As simple as it sounds that it was, I am most known for, I have produced for some artists that you may have heard of such as Lil Durk, Young Thug, Hotboii, Babyface Ray, & more. I also make loop kits, and consultations, and work as an audio engineer at Wavy Sound Music Studio, Located in Santee, CA. 

Are there any important lessons you’ve learned that you can share with us?
The most important lesson I have learned to be honest with you is to have faith, truly many people work hard and network and all the other advice that people say but I really believe the reason I got to this level of success and am going is that I just have this faith so strong it won’t let me quit because I know my end goals, I want from this music game.
