Author/Motivational Rap Artist Marcus Parker
Dallas, TX (BlackNews.com) -- Author and motivational rap artist Marcus Parker is giving the World of Motivation the same new hip vibe that individuals like Kirk Franklin and groups like Mary Mary gave to traditional gospel music that caused people to sit up and take notice.
When most people think about a motivational speaker, they think about the boring suit and tie clad individual barking out rules to live by in order to achieve success in life. Parker realized that in today's fitness-craved society, fans receive you best in your rawest form. So, when presented the opportunity to show a little skin to the female fans - who have supported him by buying his best-selling book "the product" - he stripped down to his undershirt and declared once and for all that Motivation can be sexy.
This comes after a five-year hiatus from the public eye, as Marcus spent the last few years of his life battling personal adversity, multiple deaths in his family, as well as legal issues that would have easy consumed the average man to never strive for success again.
Parker, on the other hand, took this opportunity to prove that he was in a league of his own - strengthening his mind, body and spirit. And now, he is back to share the fruits of his labor by releasing all his music and books on his new website at www.MarcusParker.com. These products are not the only gift Parker felt he had for his fans, who he felt expected much out of him.
The website also shows Parker's life drama in a short video clip. The clip shows Marcus in his lowest moments and the entire story of his rise and fall, which has equipped him with the tools to be fearless, as he continues to climb and market himself and his "Motivational Rap University". This is how he describes his mission to push Education, Motivation, and Music to a generation in much need of positive entertainment.
This mission seems attainable as Marcus returns with a hot new look and a collection of Motivational rap hits and books, which allows everyone in the digital world to receive his message via Kindle players and iTunes. Parker hopes that the decision to drop the suit from his image will open up the idea of motivation as well as life coaching to all.
