coined his stage name from a classmate who compared him to the infamous Naruto character

snippets of his unreleased music generated a sizable buzz, Maru decided he’d turn the page and
devote himself to his artistry.

throughout social media. With virtually no presence on social media, his single “Change Up”
swiftly became a viral sensation in the summer of 2021. Lil Maru has followed up with several
successful songs such as “Been 2 Gone” and “On The Block” which has garnered the most
traffic to date.

(an imprint of the label Geffen / Interscope Records). He has surpassed over 30 million views
across YouTube and has been one of the most streamed artists in his lane on TikTok.
Maru has no intentions of slowing down as he gears up for a sold out tour in 2023. He continues
to drop hit singles as he strategically moves up the ladder of success. Lil Maru is right on target
to become a household name in the music industry.
