His musical influences included The Beatles, 50 Cent, Snoop Dogg, Lil Wayne, Drake, and Future. He also recalls growing up with a strong admiration for the King of Pop– Michael Jackson. Being captivated and inspired by the infectious melodies Maru took on producing beats in middle school. That same year, Maru coined his stage name from a classmate who compared him to the infamous Naruto character “Shikamaru”. He then went on to study the creative process and found his staple sound. After snippets of his unreleased music generated a sizable buzz, Maru decided he’d turn the page and devote himself to his artistry. His success story begins in 2020 after several collaborative and independent tracks were highly-streamed and shared beyond his hometown. By the end of 2021, Maru officially went on to sign with the American record label Simple Stupid Records (an imprint of the label Geffen Records).
