The last time I wrote a review on Marion Write, it was the 10th anniversary of the September 11 attacks. The Sunlight was a pretty heavy introduction to Marion’s work so I couldn’t help but be impressed by his versatility when I heard his banging new single How to Fly, making its world premiere tonight on The DJBooth. Produced by DJ Finyl, How to Fly is a head-nodding and bluesy sample driven instrumental which inspires Marion to go into detail, giving us a lyrically Fly demonstration that would even impress the Wright brothers. Featuring fellow Vegas rapper S-U-Preme, both emcees take turns letting the listener know just what weapons they’re holding in their arsenal – “Jon Travolta these youngins and rip they face off” - and just what they need to be comfortable while high altitude cruising. So if you’ve been wanting to know what it takes to beef up your A-game, press play and jot down some notes from Write on today’s work, then be sure to cop his new album, Illustrated Example, when it drops this Tuesday via The DJBooth.
