Marlon, better know by his stage name Yung "Icepack" Ill, is a battle rapper from St. Louis. He first started in "Word War" and quickly became it's star. Yung Ill along with Aye Verb and Hitman Holla got their first break when Lionz Den's Founder Loaded Lux booked them for "St Louis vs New York". Although the event never went down, their names where there to remain in the battle rap conversation. Because of Marlin's humble, calm and collective personality he became overshadowed by his Word War underdogs, the much more talkative Ave Verb and Hitman Holla, when Smack brought them over to "The Ultimate Rap League". Dispite of the many classics he had in the early years of The URL he finally began to get some recognition after his Legendary one round battle with Harlem's T-Rex in the "Rap Battle America League". Marlin's performance against T-Rex quickley put him high in the ranks of "The Best MC's in the World", fighting with Loaded Lux for that number one spot.After the battle with T-Rex,Yung Ill had another never released Legendary battle with Brooklyn's Conceited. Due to personal problems, Yung Ill's next battles with Cortez, JC, and O-Red failed to reach the stardom level many anticipated. He is still highly regarded as number 1 or 2 of battle rap's best. On July 25, 2013 Yung Ill announced that he is refocused, and ready to get back on stage.
