Marques Elliott professionally known by Marques Elliott, Marx Alan, Jupiter Jonz, & Marques Rex is an American songwriter, singer, and producer. He was discovered by Harvey Mason, Cinque, Dboy, and Rashon “Jigg” Perry.
Marques Elliott, born in Tucson Arizona, grew up in a very musical and educated household. He plays piano mainly, and then percussion including drums and congas. He realized early on that he loved writing songs and then playing second. He moved to the Phoenix area in 2000, and graduated from ASU in 2003. He started singing locally and eventually made hits “Smokin” and “Arizona Girl” with D Boy (South Phoenix Rapper), which also lead to songs like “I Like It” and “Mira Me”. He started working with Jiggolo through local rapper J-Loc on the 98.3 Street heat of the week “Self –Esteem” which allowed their working relationship to move into vocal features with Too Short and most of the Man Up Squad. He worked with Sol Camp affiliate B$tacks and Mav to create Street heat of the Week “Jefe” featuring Chingo Bling, and “Next Level” with Mav. He’s done enough songs with Petah Roy in the Scottsdale & Orange County Pop scene, including songs “Priority” and “Pyrotechnic”. He’s also written hooks and been featured on MC Magic’s Magic City Vol 2 on “Hottest City in the World”, “B4” co-starring Tucson rapper A1Z (produced by Rocadolla) and shows his own writing and production skill on “Passenger Seat” done for A1Z. He worked with Jason “Rhythm IQ” Rydell, landing two songs on Have It Beats: Shut Up and Listen featuring artists Willy Northpole, Royce da 5’9”, and Twista. Writing wise he has written for R&B singers like Tyrese and works closely with Warner Bros Records, but also stays true to his own company Ques of Life Music.
