Early life[edit]

Marcellous was born in Chicago, Illinois, a military child on Chicago's South Side. Raised by his Mother, Father and Grandmother with a host of Uncles and Aunts he never lacked the proper development and positive upbringing. Raised mostly in Chicago, Il Infinito 2017 traveled constantly as a child due to having two parents in the military. He graduated from the University of Memphis in Memphis and got his Bachelors Degree in Art and Communications and studied Masters of Fine Arts [1]


It was around 1989 when Infinito 2017 who was then known as MCML at the time connected with his younger cousin Dariel to form LDP short for Lamont and Dariels Posse. Wanting to rap due to the fact his older cousin Derrick who was known at the time as Big Time and was a local favorite in the community of Harvey, Illinois where the family lived at the time. From this point on he sought out to make music his career when he was only 12 years of age going on 13. As time went on he got together with his cousin Dariel, better known as Dariel D and the two spent hours in their basements recording crude beats and rhymes on their boomboxes. Later in 1991 Marcellous his younger brother and his mother moved to Fort Knox, Kentucky where Lovelace found comfort in being hip hop and rapping recording over 200 audio cassettes of freestyles on a broke karaoke machine and boom box recorders. The music became an escape from living in such a meager lifestyle in a trailer park due to life’s hardships. Hip-hop was something that held him up after Dariel's unfortunate passing away in the year of 1994 due to reason he refuses to disclose to the public. After the death of his cousin and only rhyme partner Marcellous moved to Memphis, Tennessee and bought his first professional equipment and began recording. He enrolled in the Memphis College of Art, where he studied painting and running into racism in the not so diverse old southern art teaching methods, where its said that one professor even took it upon him self to tell Lovelace that “Black art is not art’. He took this as some type of disrespect and began painting up to 360 painting on a yearly basis to one day be able to paint one piece of Black Art for every one on earth and to spite the poor instruction that was being fashioned at that school. Lovelace also began hitting up the open mic scene in Memphis early underground scene on a regular basis being pressured into many battles due to his complex word play and spotless delivery that infused local rivals building his stripes as a prized battle rapper. After one of these nights he met Mr. Skurge an up and coming Dj, Producer, Rapper and painter himself, the two connected instantly and quickly started to work together building a rich catalog of music that help to build the prolific moniker for 2017. Infinito and Mr. Skurge began calling themselves the Unorthodox Poets Society derived from a rejected open mic Skurge was attempting to build up at the University of Memphis (and it was Skurge who then gave Lovelace the name Infinito because of endless timeless flow).

By 1998, the MC had moved back to Chicago, reconnecting with the underground hip hop scene in the city and making music on his own without Mr Skurge 2017 which he visualized while living in Atlanta, Georgia in 1999 with his younger brother where he frequented the Fat Beats store and gained inspiration talking with Cognito of the group Mass Influence and seeing that he could soon have records in a store, having his material on consignment in the area stores like Earwax and Camalot at that time in which temporarily began working before back to Chicago in 2000 where he linked up with multiple crews such as the Molemen and theNacrobats doing music with them as well working on albums to numerous to count numbers that total around as releasing his own material and adding on. He lived in Chicago until 2005 when he moved to San Francisco on a full scholarship to San Francisco Art Institute where he fail in love with the beautiful landscape but couldn’t stand the less than ideal living quarters the school offered, which created conflict and caused him to leave behind a prosperous fine art opportunity. After returning from California in 2006 Infinito returned to Chicago to put the finishing touches on his 2008 release Most High Definition on his on independent label Nephew of Frank Records which he has sigle handedly created publishing, licensing and distribution deals all over world.
