better life for her family. Deep down the family was dealing with Vicky’s addiction drugs. The two of
them had it hard for the first four years in Minnesota and the young rapper even went to live with his
sisters. Vicky Hunt made the decision to get clean and stayed clean she never relapsed.
Marquis had no problem making friends and settling into school. The young musician made fast
friends and was liked by all his peers. Marquis found his love for music in the last year of high school.
Music becomes a fast friend to the artist and he decided that music was not longer a hobby, but a lifestyle.
The artist had his eyes on college and a future in music, but in the summer of 2005, the rapper was shot
while visiting a friend in Minneapolis. The musician was down but not of the game yet. After applying
to a few art colleges the artist thought that he was finally on his way. Just when the artist world started
looking up he got news that would change his life forever. In the summer of 2006 his mother and number
one fan was diagnosed with breast cancer. College was now out of the question and the musician went
back to music and taking care of his mother. In 2006 he dropped his first mix tape “Rookie of the year”
volume one. The supports of the streets were huge. Rapping was now a way of life for this young artist.
After graduating from Hopkins High school in 2006 the rapper went on drop his second mix tape
named (MVP) “Most Valuable Punch lines”volume two. At this time the artist was working from 360
entertainments through them Marquis was not only booking shows, but learning the music business form
the best in Minnesota. In 2008 the musician got the call that he has been waiting for. After hooking up
with a new rap group in 2008 the artist was heading to Colorado to open for worldwide recording artist
Chingy. After the show in February the group was suppose to sign a demo deal and record some music,
but things with the group went south and once again ScooterBoi’s world was falling apart. After returning
home from another dead end, the musician went back to work on his music and dropped his third mixtape
entitled “ Hall of fame” volume three in 2009 to a great response from the streets of Minnesota.
The next step in the artist life was setting up a teen night club in Hopkins. Marquis put together a
night club for the teen of Hopkins and entitled the club, Club Exotic. The club would happen on Saturday
a month and went on for over a year. It was a safe place for the teens of Hopkins to stay safe and listen to
new music from their own peers. The musician started looking towards the future with even more plans in
business to make his goals come true. During this tough year for the artist he also lost a good friendsand
a great producer ( Dj Reflexx) to a tragic accident. The artist was at a cross road in his career and no
one knew what would happen next. The artist decided to go on and as 2010 approached the rapper was
becoming a huge name in the Minneapolis club and bar scene.
In early Feb 2010 the artist dropped his fourth mix tape entitled Are you sick of me yet? This
was the artist best mix tape to date. This was also a big year for the artist and his leaked song overload
which has over 2,000+ downloads and views. The business plan was set and his group flight academy
was formed. Scooterboi was ready to get his company set up and ready to go. This company would not
only give artists in Minnesota, but will also have a clothing line and other products. It was a great year
for shows as well. The artist did over 60 shows at the year’s end and shows no sign of letting up on
performing in 2011.
Fast forward to 2011 where the company is taking off and Flight Academy has now become
Flight Academy Entertainment. The steps are in place for this company to become an LLC in early spring
of 2011.He also will be releaseing his first debut album entitlled “ Who Cares What You Think’ fall 2011
and will be relesing his new smash hit single “ Johnnie BravHo” this summer in June. The possibilities
are endless for this talented and the world will soon know the power of his music.
