Thanks for all additions, also for the above one.
I already had my suspicions, but now you have confirmed it with the screenshot. This song is indeed co-written by Mark Ross, but not written for the screen.
This song is from the album Shake A Lil' Somethin' and was released in 1995, 5 years before the release of the movie "Bring It On". Therefore this credit can be discarded in the profile.

Agreed. I knew the song wasn't written for the film so he doesn't have a songwriting credit in my profile. If there are profiles with him listed as a songwriter, those are invalid credits and should be removed.

New Jack City – M. Ross

"In the Dust" was written specifically for the film, so these songwriting credits are valid.

Yes, and a good one at it as well!
Bought the soundtrack back then as soon it was available. ;-)

Mark Ross the rapper also has song-writing credit for "Hoochie Mama" in Friday as M. Ross. That one is valid, trust me I remember buying the soundtrack for that and the Dre song, and have been a 2 Live fan since "Is What We Are" came out in '86.

By my count (and with Curfew unconfirmed but my gut saying probably wrong, he was never known for the beats, just the raps) that would be a 2-2 tie, won by M. Ross having more credits for our purposes.

I'm torn on using M. Ross or Brother Marquis for my local, but for the masses I would lean to M. Ross.

Well, I was a fan a little later on, at around '88 or '89, can't recall that good. ;-)
Bought almost everything (incl. the special Japanese editions) regarding Skyywalker/Luke records, incl. Poison Clan and the several solo projects such as those from Luther "Uncle Luke" Campbell and of course the soundtracks, such as those spoken about.

I must say I completely forgot about these songs from New Jack City and Friday, until I saw them here at the credit screenshots.
Yeah, those guys did make quite some music, also especially for several movies.

Back in the days when David Hobbs (aka Mr. Mixx) was still part of the group, he was the beat creator/producer of the group. And he is even the (co)founder of the group, long before Luther Campbell brought these guys to Miami.

Anyway, this was slightly off-topic, but regarding the common name, I think we can say the "Mark Ross" (credited as M. Ross) naming is used the most as for the credits.
Too bad we still do not have the BY for the make-up artist Mark (James) Ross, otherwise we finally could settle this in the Accepted BY thread as well. But at least we have the rapper's birth year. ;-)

Edit: And for what it's worth, thanks for bringing back those memories! I will dust off my old albums and give them a proper spin asap.

After some digging and watching a bad VHS of an even much worse movie (IMHO) I did find the credit for Mark Ross in Curfew (1989).


This Mark Ross is Mark Ross the producer, not the rapper.

And he is the producer for the movie soundtrack, not the composer.
Since this credit can be discarded as a valid one for our purposes, this credit will have to be removed from the profiles of Curfew.

Note: An interesting article about the differences between Music Producers and Composers can be found here: Know Your Field: Music Production vs Music Scoring and Composition.

SPFX Make-up: credited as MARK ROSS


No evidence was found of any Executive Producer role (as credited in one or more profiles), only the two below:


Also, this one credited will be moved to the section of Mark Ross (Make-up).

I looked through Life As We Know It on Netflix and he isn't credited.

However, there aren't any make-up or special make-up artists in the opening or end credits, so it could be that the Netflix credits are different to those on a DVD or Blu-ray release.

Correct, I checked the DVD release at the starting and end credits and could confirm that Mark (James) Ross is not credited at all.


These are the only people credited with regard to makeup.

So this credit can be discarded (unless someone could verify is an uncredited makeup artist for this movie, but somehow doubt it).

Those credits match the version on Netflix, so I think it is safe to say that's an invalid entry.
