Marvin Campbell Jr., was born in Augusta, Georgia on 5 March 1986, same day as his father. He is known by his stage name Soup The Messenger (aka Soup), and is a lyricist and hip hop artist. His stage name arose from his nick name, which comes from his last name Campbell; like Campbell Soup.
Soup served in the U.S. Coast Guard and while in service he found himself spending every free second writing lyrics to beats with his headphones on. That's when he realized he had to follow his passion, and fulfill his destiny to make music.
After an honorable discharge, he moved to San Diego, CA, and started pursuing his dream as a hip hop artist.
Soup The Messenger values the art, the truth, and the freedom music represents. He believes in his gift to touch people's lives with consciously sound music and creative, thought-provoking lyrics.
Soup The Messenger released his first single "Don't Shoot the Messenger" on February 26, 2016, as tribute to Trayvon Martin. Soup's inspiration for this song came from the recent events experienced with the shootings across the country, political actions, and lack of community collaboration.
Soup's goal with this song is to deliver a message about the simple values in life that society seems to have forgotten about.
Soup The Messenger is working to establish strong, honest and inspirational relationships with his fans worldwide; delivering meaningful and motivational messages to all generations. His goal is to show true forgotten values of leadership, teamwork and peace. One of his biggest values is to stay humble through the growth process, no matter how high or low his success level; show fans that he stays true to his beliefs.
"Join the journey and sip the Soup!"
