Detroit’s Fool Boy Marley hit the ground running by building his name and notoriety from gracing many stages with likes of hip hop heavyweights, like Gucci Mane and Machine Gun Kelly, to touring with Charlie Baltimore and Big Heff’s Midwest Industry tour. After teaming up with BMB Records, he has begun to push out a constant stream of music and viral videos to constantly show off his skills. Today we would like to share his new video for “Better Man,” a thoughtful clip that shows the many sides and talents to Fool Boy Marley.
His hard work is paying off in a big way. He’s getting daily radio spins on stations from California to Miami to Memphis, and of course, Detroit. His global reach is supported by XM Radio (Hip Hop Nation/Shade 45), and he continues to tour regularly. On top of his talents, Fool Boy Marley is passionate about giving back and can be seen lending his notoriety to any number of causes from Autism Awareness, Coats for Kids, Flint Water Crisis, Back to School Drive and Feeding the Homeless. It’s this sort of self-awareness that comes through in everything he puts his stamp on, with the “Better Man” video being a perfect example.
“Better Man” is an introspective clip that features Fool Boy as a man who has committed the ultimate betrayal on his girl, portrayed by Detroit beauty Bella The Bombshell. While some artists celebrate the act of infidelity, the “Better Man” song and video focus instead on his quest for redemption and the self-imposed torment he must go through in order to learn to be the mate he wants to be, and the one she deserves. As the story concludes (you’ll have to watch to find out how it ends!) a quote by Alenna Brown comes across the screen, perfectly capturing the lesson; “Our love is the horizon… For there is never really a true end.”
