BORN AND BREAD IN HARLEM MARCEL JONES BKA SOUPBLACK BEGAN HIS STORY GROWING UP IN GRANT PROJECTS. SOUPBLACK HAD A PASSIONATE LOVE FOR BASKETBALL, BUT AFTER LEAVING SCHOOL BECAUSE OF LACK SUPPORT SOUPBLACK TURNED TO THE STREETS FOR THE LOVE HE LACKED FROM FAMILY. EARNING STREET SCARS AND STRIPES WASN'T EASY AND GROWING UP WITHOUT HIS DAD WAS VERY DISCOURAGING. IT WAS JUST HIM AND HIS MOM UNTIL HIS GRANDMOTHER TOOK HIM AWAY DUE TO CHILD ABUSE AND NEGLECT. AT THE YOUNG AGE OF 13, SOUPBLACK FOUND A WAY TO EXPRESS HIS PAIN THROUGH MUSIC. THIS WOULD BE HIS TURNING POINT. SPENDING SLEEPLESS NIGHTS WRITING SONGS; ONE DAY SOUPBLACK WAS PUT TO THE TEST WHEN ASKED TO SPIT A VERSE IN A CYPHER OF ABOUT 200 PEOPLE. AFTER SPITTING HIS VERSE, A STAR WAS BORN. FROM BLOCK PARTIES TO HOUSE PARTIES, SOUPBLACK WOULD BEGIN TO GRAB THE MIC WHENEVER ONE WAS AROUND AND MOVE THE CROWD. AT THE AGE OF 19, SOUPBLACK WAS OFFERED A MANAGEMENT DEAL BY A INDIE LABEL CALLED WRECKROOM ENTERTAINMENT, WHERE ONE OF HIS SINGLES WAS RELEASED BUT WITH LACK OF ANY PROMOTION. HE STAYED FOCUSED AND KEPT WRITING. WITHOUT A LABEL HOME, HE DECIDED TO INVEST IN HIMSELF. THAT WAS THE BIRTH OF WATCHBLACK ENTERTAINMENT. SOUPBLACK ALBUMS
