Another day, another SoundCloud discovery. Even before I pressed play on the new record from Chicago’s Kid Marquis, I noticed the song’s cover art. It’s exceptional; chosen I’m sure for very specific reasons. It matches the self production of Southside Hero well, incorporating dreary and dark bass, and deep sampled vocals.
Marquis makes a compelling case for being the next up for not only the Southside of Chicago, but the city as a whole. It’s a self motivational track, as he proclaims that he cannot loose in his musical aspirations. His delivery is fierce and lyrics direct. Look out for this kid’s come up by following him on SoundCloud.
