Possible XXL Freshman candidate?

I recently got the chance to sit down with artist Marineman, Tony Lee Edwards.

Edwards graduated in 2016 from Hamilton High School and since then has been making music.

Not only a musical talent, Edwards is also a Youtuber creating content for his channel Marineman. His channel includes segments of 'WTF Marine', vlogs, audio of recent tracks, gameplay, and music videos.

While chatting with Marineman, he admitted his celebrity crush is actress and artist, Selena Gomez! This charming gent has had a rocky past with relationships but IS available! Marineman goes in depth with his past relationship in his 2018 song Dearly Beloved 4 from his album 'The Other Promise'.

Marineman later brought up his beef with local artist Slim Jesus (Robert Church). Back in early 2014 to late 2015, Edwards and Church declared a rap battle. Unfortunately, the iconic rap battle fell through. Luckily for us his Slim Jesus disses are available on his youtube channel. His most recent one being 'Red Bottoms'.

Edwards has been writing and producing since 2011, when he was only 14. Thus far Edwards has released three full length albums and a music video for his most popular song 'Dearly Beloved' shot by Canon Jones. Edwards said when shooting for 'Dearly Beloved' he was a little nervous but was very pleased with the final product. In the music video, Edwards aka Marineman is decked out in all black trench coat and a key blade from his favorite game, Kingdom Hearts.

Dearly Beloved is a 4 part song all describing Edwards past struggles and his new upbringing.

Edwards went on to talk about his high school friends, who are also seen in his vlogs. He claims his friends are the most important part of his life. Edwards describes his friends as "cool, laid back, hood rats".

One thing that instantly caught my attention is that Edwards refuses to glorify gun violence, drugs, strippers, and money in his music. He decided to focus on deeper meaning and life, which sets him aside from other new wave rappers. Edwards mentions he'd rather speak the truth than represent "guns, money, and thots". In his Red Bottoms diss he touches on Slim's "hood rat facade" with lyrics like "Go ahead flex everyday, nobody cares, fuck what you say".

Edwards mentions Slim Jesus quite a few times in his WTF Marine segments, Edwards says "you can really feel my hate for Slim Jesus in the words I say and the disses I write".

In 2019, Edwards plans to create new content for his youtube channel and release new music! 2019 is the year of Marineman!
