Inspired by Underground Hip Hop and artists such as Sage Francis, RZA, Pharoahe Monch, Atmosphere, Royce Da 5'9, 2Pac, and many more, Morgan "Mabus" McLaren has a poetic and energetic style that bleeds beauty into his music. At a young age Morgan was greatly influenced and fascinated by music of all genres, but it wasnt until the age of fifteen that he began freestyling and experimenting with Hip Hop after being inspired by watching local artists perform in Nelson B.C. Canada. Aiming to surround himself with individuals who also shared his passion for musical endeavors, Morgan quickly grew his new found hobby into a full fledged addiction to Hip Hop. Within a few short months he too started to gain recognition entertaining locals with his precise flow and "blunt" punchlines anywhere and anytime that he possibly could. Mainly known for his unique freestyle and off the top wordplay, Morgan's Hip Hop persona "Mabus" was born. Soon after realizing that he had an unbridled love for writing, lyrics, as well as performing, he decided to take his art form to a broader and more professional level. In 2001, Mabus with the help of his longtime childhood friend Adam "Invectrum" Carriere began experimenting with samples and beats they compiled from whatever sources they could possibly encounter; vinyl records, loops, soundtracks, and of course the internet. While other kids their age in high school began simultaneously chasing women, liqour, and drugs, Mabus and Invectrum condemned themselves to countless hours of work with nothing but a computer, a microphone, and drive for creative greatness. Within one year Mabus had twenty five tracks written and recorded, learning producing and mastering techniques from scratch as he progressed. Using nothing but "cool edit pro" Mabus created multiple demos and mixtapes over the next few years, and with the help of Invectrum was always trying to excel and progress to spread his music and gain recognition. However, in 2005 Morgan was confronted and challenged by mountainous personal issues stemming from the death of a close relative and the collapse of an unhealthy romantic relationship, catapulting him into a downward spiral of drinking and self destruction. Buried in anger he picked up the pen once again and began writing to cope with the overwhelming emotional issues that confronted him.. Adamant about signing to labels, Mabus continues to write, produce, and release his own music with the help of Invectrum in hopes of one day breaking out into a world that is saturated with irrelevant and mundane artists. Using his music to drag himself from the depths of disaster, Morgan "Mabus" McLaren came back with an incredible hunger for success, continuing to push the limits and break boundaries with his raw passion and undeniable talent.
