Detroit mainstay, (and guy I see at EVERY St. Andrew's Hip-Hop show) Marv Won taking all you terrible rappers to church for two straight minutes. Sit up, put your hands up, confess and repent your sins.

Produced by the D's own Mr. Porter.

I'm loving this on a sonic level which is an area I think hip-hop is purely overlooked by many.   What am I talking about?  Take a minute, when your boss isn't looking or your girlfriend/wifey is pre-occupied and won't make fun of you. Close your eyes and hit play on this one.  Take a minute to listen to all the shit going on in this track.  Literally close your eyes, set the actual words aside for a second (although this joint is a lyrical champ to say the least), feel the kick the rhythm of the flow the way that sample is dipping in and out, the sound of the voices.  See what I'm saying?   There's definitely something to be said about hip-hop technically and sonically that a lot of music heads (nerds) tend to completely ignore based on their assumption that hip-hop is lazy, cheap music.

Will Phro chastise me and pause police the hell out of some of wording in this post?  Sure.  Will Major roll his eyes and call me a fake musical elitist prick?  Maybe.  But one thing is for sure, you can't deny a hot ass cut... and that's exactly what this is.  Cop Clear Soul Forces album at their bandcamp page.

What up doe?   Jonathan Ross ran a great interview with Marshall talking about his drug addiction, his come up and music.  Pretty interesting to say the least.

Side note:  Am I the only one who's noticed how Em is kinda fighting his urge to smile the past couple television interviews?  It's kinda funny and weird, but also seems kind of smart when you think about it.  As an interviewer you're far more likely to ask someone who is being funny and laughing the punchy, risky questions.  But if that person you're interviewing isn't goofing and is straight serious, no facial expression and monotone you're more likely to tiptoe around questions and subjects (see our Joe Budden interview in Episode #69, lol).  So either he's getting really weird, or he's just really smart.

Part 2 of the interview after the cut.
