The new video by Norristown rapper Groov Marro, Stop Me, has generated more than a million views on Facebook in less than two weeks, writes Eugene Zenyatta for the Philadelphia Weekly.
As a result, the musician, who is currently serving his sixth year in the Army National Guard, has gained many new fans worldwide and also been featured on major hip-hop blogs, including thisis50.com.
“I was completely blown away by the response,” said the rapper. “I was watching the views climb, thinking there was some kind of glitch. The next thing I know, I wake the day it broke 1 million views to a bunch of congratulations texts telling me my video hit 1M before I even saw it for myself!”
And while the pandemic has not affected his job with the Army, it has curtailed Marro’s ability to do live performances. But although he has had to cancel some previously scheduled appearances, he has gotten something positive from self-isolation.
“It has given me ample time to create more content, explore different styles, and try different deliveries on my music,” he said.
