New York rapper and producer Marques Martin continues to innovate and thrillingly blend genres on his latest offering “Hailey”. Watch here
Throbbing bass and jagged synths clash with Martin’s signature frank bars, a vivid personality continuing to shine through. With an urgent march of percussion, “Hailey” sees Marques struggling with his other self, mired in his own dark thoughts.
With his recent singles “About 2 Die”, “Kissing Pavements” and “Dinner Date” picking up critical support across both sides of the Atlantic, the Maryland born artist’s first drop of 2020 underlines his wisecracking, bloodily personal brand of lyricism. It’s another example of his thrillingly free, experimental style anchored by a natural affinity to pop contructs.
