Marco Pavé Debuts “Lifted” With Hosting LaRussell At GU



Closing out September’s Self Improvement month, well-known speaker and recording artist Marco Pavé shares his debut song as he is announced as Georgetown University’s first residential hip hop artist. In a lecture powered by G.U.’s Lecture Fund & Critical Frequencies, the Memphis-based community leader hosted an intimate conversation with the Vallejo rap act at ICC Auditorium with indie star LaRussell. The two discussed a variety of topics like being independent, today’s Hip-Hop, social media, and the power of positive thinking.

“Since I was 22 years old, I have been speaking at colleges and universities about the power of Hip Hop,” says Pavé. “My residency at Georgetown is a natural progression for my brand. It is an incredible platform that allows me to continue my creative work while also providing a platform for me to showcase other artists in my network.”

Bringing on LaRussell as a special guest for the fire chat was to educate students on the ups and downs of being an independent artist in today’s music.

He further explained: “Case in point, me bringing LaRussell for a discussion about the climate of the culture and the pitfalls as well as joys of being an independent artist. To do that and then turn around and be able to put out a record of my own immediately after because I’m in complete control of my art is my version of living the dream. I originally made #Lifted as a reflection on my life. At 19 or 20, I had my forklift license because that was the best job you could have at the warehouse I was working at, and I was still broke and depressed because that’s not what I wanted for myself. It’s a song of remembrance, of the hard times but also a song of endearment to keep rising up from wherever you started.”

“Lifted” is a catchy debut that showcases Marco Pavé’s charismatic personality, undeniable star power and impressive lyrical abilities. It’s the perfect origin point for newfound fans.

“Lifted” is produced by Manté Carlo. For everything LaRussell, click here.

Meet Steven ‘Thurough’ Thauriaux Founder Of Global Kingz Marketing




Steven “Thurough” Thauriaux started Global Kingz marketing in 2019. Realizing there was a need for honest, genuine marketers in the Hip Hop industry. Thurough is no stranger to the entertainment world, at the age of 18, he was signed to an independent record label with Sony distributorship.

After his arrest, he voided his contract, and the record label dropped him. Eager to get back into the rap game, he kept on making dope music, gaining recognition locally.

He started paying for his own marketing and growing his fan base. He also started a family and rapping wasn’t paying the bills. Thauriaux had plenty of friends that made music and continued to see them struggle.

From his experience, he knew most marketing opportunities would just be someone selling you a dream and telling you what you want to hear just to take money from you. No one cared for talented, struggling artists. Thurough’s love for music just couldn’t let him stop being involved. Thurough recorded his last song in 2016.

Took 3 years off, but would still ghostwrite for many artists. He saw the need for legit marketers. So as a rapper with over 12 years of experience, he decided to start helping artists get out there and learning how to use Google ads and other forms of marketing. He is one of the very few legit marketers in the hip-hop industry. He doesn’t do marketing for money, although there is a cost involved.

He only works with artists he hand-picks because he believes in their music. He believes any marketers that will promote garbage music are scammers because they should tell you your music isn’t worth promoting.

Thurough has worked alongside plenty of artists and, honestly, too many to mention. He focuses on young talented artists that genuinely need support because they’re not sure what to do next or what’s a scam or not. Thurough has a huge advantage being that he himself rapped for years and has first-hand experience with most of these scams; evidently, he knows what works vs what won’t work.

Most marketers tell you what you want to hear just to take your money. Thurough is one of the only few marketers that will tell you the truth whether you buy a service or not, he’s here to help artists. Thurough focuses on teaching artists how to run their own youtube ads so they can save money in the long run, he’s truly changing the music marketing game one artist at a time. He works with artists one on one for the best results.

He is very open and honest with his strategy and will not keep any secrets like most marketers. If you’re an upcoming artist, model, or influencer, don’t look any further for the realest marketer. He has been on both sides of the fence, so he truly does what’s best for his clients regardless if he makes money off of his advice or not.
