From being involved with the underground hip hop scene since 2006, to opening for Guru from Gangstarr, Talib Kweli, Pete Rock, Slum Village, Marlon D recently released his latest endeavor, ‘Act 2’.
‘Act 2’ features a whopping 20 song track list. While listening you get an understanding of who Marlon D is as an artist. Each song has a mini story line told within the lyrics, making it more emotionally engaging. For me, the most interesting track was “Change Is Gonna Come”. It really showcases his talent in composing an interesting song with various layers of instrumentals that complement each other as well as the lyrics. There’s this funky almost bluesy undertone that makes for an unique sound. “Change Is Gonna Come” would be the highlight song that I would recommend anyone listen to to appreciate the artistry that went into creating it.
