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.

Marcel P. Black's #15StatesOrBust Show Dates

At the end of 2016, when I tallied up all my tour dates, I realized I performed in 9 different states total. I told myself, I wanted to perform in 6 new states in 2017, bringing the total up to 15. In January I knocked two states off the list (Louisiana, and Mississippi), and in the month February 5 out of 6 shows are in different states. In March I perform in 3 different states, and in April I return to different cities in the same states.

By the end of April, I will have performed in 9 different states, 14 shows total. I'm constantly looking for new cities & states to go to. Look for new dates come summer time.
