Miss Marianna jokingly references her multiple personalities as a driving force behind the "Face Off" mixtape project: “I’ve finally embraced all of me as an emcee…the good, the bad, the ugly, and the genius. I’m not concerned with being stuck on one vibe all the time that’s just not how life is…as a woman I have different faces and roles...I’m just not one thing.” On any given day you might meet The New World Daughter, the in-your-face Black Superhero, or MariMoolah, on the hustle as a business woman. If your lucky there’s TippyPaw, the mysterious assertive lioness, or MariPoppins with the lyrical shake down groove.
