Garnering over 2 million streams, receiving Hot97 Radio Play and being featured on numerous top rated blogs, NY producer Jack Marzilla is back and better than ever. Previously known as MistrAdams, Marzilla is no stranger to the music industry. Starting out as a rapper, he gained recognition from an A&R at Def Jam Records, which sparked an invaluable connection that led him to produce for some of the biggest names in hip hop, including 50 Cent, AceHood, G-Unit, Zoey Dollaz, King Los and many more. We caught up with this promising artist for We Own The Nite NYC ahead of his new release ‘Booski’ – out March 11, 2022. 

Welcome to We Own The Nite Jack! Where are we speaking to you from today?

The pleasure is mine, I’m currently residing in New York, Just an hour north of New York City.

Can you introduce yourself to our readers and tell us a little bit about your background in music?

I started in the music industry as a producer under the name of MistrAdams. I was about 16 at the time when my career started! I competed in a Beat Battle competition at Webster Hall and one of the Judges was an A&R for Def Jam. I didn’t win this competition, but I made a valuable relationship that night, which led me to produce for 50 Cent, G-unit, Ace Hood, King Los, Zoey Dollaz, and many more.

You’re gearing up to release your debut track “Booski”. Can you tell us a bit about this track & the inspiration behind it?

This record is all about relationship security, with an essence of fantasy and desire for your partner. We’re bombarded with music that promotes cheating, lying etc, and this is causing worldwide insecurities. I’m making Girlfriend/wife music, just because you’re in a relationship does not mean the mystery of desire and intimacy must be dull. Sexuality with maturity. Catch your vibes with your woman, and if you’re single, play my music for that late-night mood supply.

We have heard you filmed & directed the official music video for the track. Can you tell us about that too?

Yes, I just want to be creative and have fun doing it honestly. Create a visual representation of the moods and emotions that I feel when listing to my music. I designed the sets, put everything together and shot all the scenes that I’m not in. I had a vision in mind and I wanted to portray that to you all. I had help from friends, it truly was a group effort. This is my first-time filming and editing, so I must pay homage to YouTube tutorials!

Do you have more releases in the pipeline?

I do! I’m currently planning the visuals to my next record as we speak. I can’t wait to share it with you all.

What artists/musicians inspire you?

Honestly not too many, I don’t really listen to music like that. I find that if I listen to others, their sound unconsciously influences me when I’m creating, and I want my sound to be 100% Marzilla. But one artist that I’ve always thought was super dope is Missy Elliot & Timbaland Duo. They had a sound/image that was absolutely incredible.

What do you do outside of music?

I spend my days working, I drive for Fedex right now. When I’m not working, I usually can be found riding with friends. I’m an avid motorycyle/dirtbike rider, so outdoor sports are big for me. Aside from that, I’m at the range, with family or at the gym mixed with calm evenings, catching vibes and writing poetry.

What has been the best moment of your career to date?

Meeting and working with Timbaland in the studio. I looked up to him as a kid, his energy in person is infectious. One of the greats, Humble dude.

Do you have any gigs coming up?

No, no gigs yet, but this year for sure.

Who would you love to collaborate with, and why?

Sad Night Dynamite, that sound is so unique and different. I feel like our vibes together would be a smash.

Where can we follow you?

You can follow me on Instagram @JackMarzilla. I truly appreciate and thank you all!

Jack Marzilla – Booski will be released on Friday, March 11.
