Mr. Mavrikk aka Johnny 2 Good pka Jay grew up in the small city of Waynesboro, VA. Little did he know that he and his cousin (Ace Corleone) would rename the town to “Dub-City” in the later years to come.
Growing up in such a small city, the first thing Mavrikk Learned was to keep his mouth shut. Like any other small town everybody knows everybody and everyone knows everything. So Mav pretty much stayed to himself to keep his Business to himself. As a youngin’ Mavrikk’s parents were divorced by the time Mav turned 5 years of age. The courts granted Mav’s mother full custody, but everybody knows a women can’t raise a man. It seemed all Mav wanted to do was run around the city, act a fool, and pull females.
By the time high school started Mav’s mother was more than tired of his antics, so he went to live with his father in Staunton, VA. Do not get it twisted; Mavrikk’s father was no dead beat Dad. Being the better man that he was, Mavrikk’s Dad put his foot down and Mav turned his life around for the better so he thought. No longer, barely passing classes, Mav was getting A’s and B’s consistently, held down a job but still the future musical genesis always seemed to stay to himself.
As well as Mr. Mavrikk was doing in school he still hated to go to class. “School is too easy! What a waste of time.” It was hard for the young man to find something that he believed in that he could pour his heart into. Except for MUSIC!!
All of Mavrikk’s life he believed in the power that music could give to him and to others around him. Unable to carry a tune, Mav began to write Rhymes. And write and write.
Rap music wasn’t paying him a dime so Mav did whatever he could do to make some money. From jobs, to selling drugs, to trying to start his own insurance company. Still none has given Mr. Mavrikk the satisfaction that music seems to give him on an overwhelming basis.
ONLY FINDING SALVATION IN A BEAT AND A FLOW!
