It’s been two years and change since Marky soared Up, up & Away, leaving the Booth far behind. Today, he finally touches back down on our pages, but don’t get it twisted; as evidenced by the title of his latest promo single, the DMV rhymesayer is still striving for ever-loftier altitudes. Lunice and Hudson Mohawke (together known as TNGHT) double up behind the boards on Higher Ground. Backed by their bass-heavy brass blasts, looped vocal samples and handclap-heavy rhythm section, Marky mixes turnt-up lyrics about weed and p**sy with philosophical reflections on his hustle: “Real sh*t, had a dream last night that I drowned / So I ain’t got that much more time to live, therefore the time is now.” This very live selection is slated to appear on the emcee’s The Road Less Traveled LP, which has yet to receive a drop date. As always, fans can keep their browsers locked for all the latest.
