Marc “Mayjah” Payne releases his highly anticipated “Whole Lotta Payne”
Marc “Mayjah” Payne releases his highly anticipated “Whole Lotta Payne” now available on all streaming platforms. All of the beats and instrumentation was created by Marc Payne himself in Los Angeles, California. His production shines a good light on USC since he is one of the Trojan Alumni and took music classes there on the campus. “Whole Lotta Payne” was engineered by Caydolf of Press 3 Recordings in Kansas City, Missouri.
The album cover features the map of Mansa Musa who Payne claims is his “great uncle” on the intro track “You get what you deserve.” Mansa Musa reigned in Mali, West Africa during the 14th century being one of the richest men in history.
When asked why he named it “Whole Lotta Payne” he responded he wanted anyone who listened to feel his pain through his lyrics and musical production plus he wanted to bring respect to his family name, Payne. The West Kept Secret added that even if we aren’t rich with financial dollars, we are rich in spirit and our true wealth lies within us.
The 13 track release features appearances from Big Sad 1900, 10kJA, Chrissy Montana, and Shorty T. It is definitely worth the listen and stands out among the West Coast Hip Hop scene of today. Follow his journey on social media platforms @mayjahpayne and on the website www.mayjahpayne.com
