“This is not a movie, this is my life”. Recognizing that you are blessed to come out of the situations that you came out of to be the person you are today. Lyrics like, “living on the edge, man you should let your fear go,” only further echoes the courage to free yourself.
Music: My Life by Malachi Grant - IMove ILive
"Since I could remember, I’ve loved music. It was a big part of my upbringing. My grandfather, mother, sister and I all play instruments. I just got caught up in the melodies and began writing. Then I got my introduction to hip-hop and it continued on. I never really had to decide it was for me. I just had to accept it."

Talks with Malachi Grant -The Hype Magazine
"His music has a smooth feel to it and the lyrics are on point and crisp. On his album, "Welcome 2 My World", there are some definite bangers with big 808 kicks and heavy bass that will blow out your stereo deck. Malachi also has a good singing voice for hooks, which makes his style more versatile."

Built 2 Blow - Urban-Lyfe
"Merksmilez’s lyrical ability encompasses a fresh style with an early ’90s rap renaissance vibe an inter-changeable flow for the new millennium. People are drawn to him because of the lyrical content and messages within his music."
- The One Mic
“All and all Malachi is simply an ambitious, skilled and talented young man driven by his grandfather's last words to him”
Tammy Black - Bout 2 Blow Magazine
“It's not everyday that a rapper is fortunate to absorb his environment then voraciously spew content worthy of praise. Merksmilez is Bronx bred and fed with a mission to supply the opposite of ordinary.”
Sha'Linda Jeanine - YoRaps
“This is what he hopes for the future - for everyone to have an ill view so that future can be shaped by visionaries of the world. He stated, "Everyone has a vision, you just gotta put the energy in to make it happen".”
Rham Robinson - Protege Magazine
“His latest project "Just That ILL gives an in-depth look at who Malachi is and the experiences he has gone through. The music is a bit mellow as he experiments with different vibes throughout this project.”
