Maps produces '...such gems as Nolo Contendere, proving he has much more up his sleeve than we may think..' says Elizabeth Junse, a contributor to the acclaimed Spin Magazine. 'Lyrically refreshing...Maps blends raw marketability with geniuine brilliance in his lyrics, and he executes seamlessly...Excellent.' (Eddie Fykell, Capitol Records) Maps, born Mario Paez, is causing seismic shockwaves throughout the Miami music scene with his mix of Ska, Punk, and Hip Hop. Coming out of smalltown Connecticut, he used strippers to attract attention to his set and was eventually discovered at the much loved Churchills Pub near downtown Miami. Nobody could have predicted the amount of talent hidden inside this person who calls himself Maps. Miami music mogul and producer Bill Wallace calls Maps' debut album, 'Aging Youth', a 'fitting musical soundtrack to the ever changing face of young Miami...' Maps is literally turning heads with his musical style, after several years on the open mic circuit. Although the critics have practically thrown roses at him, Maps claims he's 'just another rising star in Miami'...some stars certainly shine brighter than others. Article by: Correa Mason.
