Alanis Morissette Married Rapper Souleye – But Who the Hell is He?

We’ll be honest, until we found out Alanis Morissette married rapper Mario “MC Souleye” Treadway, we’d never heard of the guy. Seriously, the guy doesn’t even have a Wikipedia page that we can find, although we’re sure that will be rectified shortly now that he’s married Morissette.

 Turns out Mario Treadway, a.k.a. Souleye, is six years younger than new wife Morissette. She’s 36, he’s just 30. The two reportedly met sometime in October, 2009 about the same time Morissette was breaking it off with boyfriend Tom Ballanco, an environmental lawyer. 

Souleye is also reportedly an activist type, something Morissette no doubt likes about him. He has spoken out frequently regarding universal health care and environmental causes. 

Rapper Souleye reportedly prefers to “perform freestyle” with “completely improvisational lyrics” to “allow the present audience to participate and be involved in the creation and collective energy of the music,” according to one press statement about him at FijiNewYears.com. 

Alanis Morissette and Souleye have apparently been living together for some time in Los Angeles in the same home where the two got married in May. 

For those who want to get in the know about Alanis Morissette’s new husband, they can check him out on Twitter, Facebook and at his official site, Souleye.net.

  1. MARIO TREADWAY IS AN INCREDIBLE HIP HOP ARTIST! IF YOU HAVEN’T HEARD OF HIM YET YOU WILL! CONGRAT MARS AND ALANIS:)

  2. Am amazed. As a guy with a Ph.D. in Behavioral Analysis, and a guy who really enjoys Alanis’ music, I can only say the following: Alanis is musically an absolute genius. She’s PROBABLY even a genius when it comes to linguistics (for those who care, I subscribe to Dr. Howard Gardner, Ph.D.’s (from Harvard) theory on mulitiple intellects, those being: logical, linguistic, musical, kinesthetic (aka athletic), spatial, interpersonal and intrapersonal. When it comes to interpersonal and intrapersonal–that is, knowledge of self and knowledge of other people, however, she’d probably score (by the IQ range people generally think of) somewhere between 70 and 90. I’m sure Maryanne really likes this remote Rap, uh, “artist” (sorry, being White, AND a rapper, unless you’re Marshall Mathers [who hasn’t realized he’s just about 40], wreaks of a need to reconnect with your caucasoid roots). And Cougarizing? For someone I used to believe was spiritually wise beyond her years (as I’m an absolute, serious die-hard fan of her music an lyrics, and was from day 1, even love SFIJ, FoS, et.al.), I’ve come to the conclusion she’s musically and lyrically (linguistically) ridiculously wise beyond her years. When it comes to her choice in men, however, she’s still 14 and getting over Uncle Joey [don’t know about the Uncle Joey thing for certain, in fact it’s probably not true, but when I saw the list of men she’s dated, instead of going out with guys who are seriously interpersonal and intrapersonal geniuses [and FWIW, I’m not one], any of whom would have imparted upon her centuries of truth, she chose this guy. I’ll never think of her music, or her, the same way. This whole thing kind of skeeves me out. Well, she made her own bed and now will have to lie in it, and soon will have to lie to the press about it. She could have done SO SO much better. I never imagined when it came to guys Alanis would want, apparently looks>substance in importance. How sad.

  3. WOW, ART, YOU ARE A WINDBAG… ANY WAY GO AND LISTEN TO SOULEYE’S LYRICS HE IS A DEEPLY SPIRITUAL MAN, INTELLIGENT, LOYAL AND FUNNY. YES HE IS HANDSOME, BUT HE IS SO MUCH MORE. ALANIS HAS GREAT TASTE IN GUYS WHICH SHE PROVED BY PICKING MARIO AND NOT YOU! STOP BEING A HATER AND WISH THESE INCREDIBLE MUSICAL INNOVATORS LOVE AND LUCK, PEACE

  4. Wow, a guy named art. Should be Fart for that long winded, oh look how smart I am, nonsensical rant. No one cares

  5. My sons Derek and Jesse grew up with Mario and his brother Rich here in Sturbidge and if you ask me, Alanis is the lucky one. Mario has overcome much adversity and tough times but has remained charming, intelligent and real. We are all very proud of him in his old hometown. Congraulations Mario, Rich would be so proud of you.

  6. Art, your just a dissapointed fan because Alanis got married i knew that girls were immature and stoped “crushing” over there once adored celeb but a guy?? haha thats funnny

  7. @ art
    wow, just cuz a guy isn’t famous, he’s untalented? just cuz he’s white he can’t be a rapper? give me a break. u’ve revealed urself as a total imbecile. congratulations on ur low iq. now u can live ur life knowing someone that is a borderline genius (according to 2 iq tests, since ur so into numbers) thinks ur an idiot.

  8. Art I gotta say for an educated guy you seem so closed minded. Heres an idea perhaps they love each other. Some thing dont need to be anyalized and broken down into behavior whatevers, they just are what they are. Love is that it cant be classifed it just is. Secondly I had no idea who this guy was either so I googled him hahaha our generation right. I must say I agree with Maryanne I was pleasently surprised. Oh and whats your issue with Eminem, your right hes almost 40 but still topping charts like crazy. Jay-Z is 40 and hes at his musical prime.

  9. By the way you cannot be a true music fan. If you can not look at someones music the same way due do a personal choice like getting married you wern`t a fan to begin with.

  10. Art I highly believe you don’t a Phd cause what you wrote is asanin and I’m finding it hard to believe you’re a grown up because you come off as a whiney teenager with a crazed crush. Get over it and yes whites can rap too it doesn’t soley belong to a particular race- Doofus!
