Marlon Craft "Pieces' (Mixtape)


"Pieces" is a free mixtape from Hell's Kitchen's Marlon Craft. It is the first project I'm hearing from him, but there's also a 2013 release from Marlon called "Extracurricular ACTivity," which I'm gonna check out after enjoying "Pieces" some more. The project is 15 tracks long and features borrowed production from some notable producers like Black Milk, 9th Wonder, J Dilla, Havoc and Moods, as well as North Villah, Freddie Joachim, P.R., MF Love, Suff Daddy and Anitek. Marlon Craft is a solid MC, showcasing his lyrical prowess over some well-selected instrumentals. I don't know much about him at this point, but with his talent, it's just gonna take finding the right producers, studying his craft and learning the industry - we've got one to watch in the underground!
