Lyrique's artist moniker tells you everything you need to know about the Philippines-born, Calgary-based artist. While hip-hop has evolved a lot in recent years, with the production and energy of a track becoming more of a focus than ever, Lyriqur is keeping lyrical content at the forefront of his artistic output. The latest display is his most recent single, "Marathon," an anthem for any of us that need some extra swag in our step.

“'Marathon' is a confidence song," Lyrique tells us in a statement. "I’m still the shy type, a socially awkward person. 'Marathon' brought me to be confident in who I am. I’ve gone this far so why not take ownership of it.”  The track was produced and engineered by DJ Rocswell.
