Marz (aka Zlatko Hukic) started in music working as a tech in a Chicago recording studio (Chicago Trax), where he worked for various acts, including Ministry.
Marz produced a demo which won him a contract with E-Magine Records, with whom he released the album "Lung Fu Mo She". Tracks from this album were featured in a TV ad for the movie "Catwoman", in MTV’s “The Real World”, and included on MTV & WWE’s “Tough Enough 2” Soundtrack.
In 2000-2001, Marz performed two nationwide tours with Insane Clown Posse on the “Bizaar Bizzar Tour” and appears on Dark Lotus' debut album, Tales from the Lotus Pod. Marz later severed ties with this group, which has been labeled by some journalists as an "anti-prosperity cult".
Marz toured with Korn in 2002 after joining their record label, Elementree, to begin work on his second album, and performed on Korn's "Pop Sux" Tour. During this time, Marz recorded collaborations with Jonathan Davis and Swizz Beatz. Marz' self-released album, "Gorilla Pimpin'", included a song called "Cut Throat" that featured Jonathan Davis.
In 2004, Marz started his own record label Billion Dollar Ballers Entertainment. He released TGZ Nation The Mixtape under this label.
In 2005, Marz performed at Power 92 Chicago’s Summer Fest.
