Marks is a Finnish hip hop producer and musician, who has produced music for Kool G Rap, Om'mas Keith (of Sa-Ra Creative Partners), Punchline (of EMC), Verbal Threat, Muhsinah, Ken Ring and a pack of Finnish artists like Asa, Joniveli, Kemmuru, Elastinen, Timo Pieni Huijaus, Pyhimys, and Kova Ote. In 2007, Marks was hand-picked to the Red Bull Music Academy held in Toronto, Canada.
The artist's style is somewhat comparable to the traditional sample based hiphop from the 90's. Especially in the late 1990s, some of the most respected sample-based hiphop producers were DJ Premier, Pete Rock, The Rza and The Alchemist. In Marks' music, the influence of these masters can be noticed.
