This morning’s Battle of the Headliners features the young man born in Brooklyn in 1974 and goes by the name Maxwell. His first single release was in 1996, a track called “…Til The Cops Come Knockin” which did not do very well on the charts, which may have been do to the fact that he was a new artist with a vanguard sound. The follow-up single “Ascension” was certified gold in August of that same year! Of course now he is a household name; will he win the battle this morning?

Musiq Soul was born in Philadelphia and is the oldest of nine children. At an early age, Musiq left home and dropped out of school at the age of 17. He has 2 platinum albums, 2 gold albums and several hits. Will Musiq Soulchild take the title this morning? Let us know by leaving your comment below.
