Marcel P. Black #15StatesOrBust Tour Blog #2

"Confession, I HATE PERFORMING IN BATON ROUGE!!! Not because I think I’m too big for BR, but bc the majority of the time I rap at home I have to put the show together myself. Between local rap politics and nobody being able to afford me, I only rap in BR like 6 times a yr, charity, opening up for someone with a bigger name, or if I do the show myself."

Marcel P. Black Performance Hi Lo Lounge NoLa (3/19/17)

About two months ago I did a 2 day run in Tampa & St. Peterstburg, Florida. I left the venue at like 3 am in St. Pete, changed clothes, took a Lyft to the Tampa airport and flew back to New Orleans. Got back from NoLa to BR around 3 PM, only leave out again at 8 PM on a Sunday night to New Orleans for my li'l bro Alfred Bank's album release party. I was dog tired and had little to no voice left. The bill was filled with what I would call "Panda" aged emcees, and I'm the only one born in the 80's. Still I was able to persevere and take Hi-Hop to church this Sunday evening.

S/o to #FadeTheFlowSundaysAlunmi MeQuan for being my driver, videographer, director, editor, and solid @ss dude this evening.

Why You Need to Know Him: Marcel P. Black originally came to Baton Rouge by way of Oklahoma, but has established himself as one of the city’s hip-hop leaders over the past decade. In addition to cultivating the local scene, Black has become an in-demand act on the regional circuit. Black’s rise has been an unlikely one, creating conscious rap in a Baton Rouge scene largely bereft of such content. The rapper found a winning formula in recent years by moving away from boom-bap beats to more traditional southern production. The switch reached its apex last year via Black’s excellent Cry Freedom LP.
