Fresh off the wave of reader acclaim he garnered for Full Clip, a Booth-premiered freestyle dedicated to late Northeastern hip-hop icon Guru, DMV up-and-comer Marky draws inspiration from a somewhat more surprising musical idol on the latest leak off his forthcoming, Kevin Nottingham/DJBooth.net-cosponsored street album. Run On finds producer The Madman serving up a synth-fortified sample from country legend Johnny Cash’s classic track God Will Cut You Down as Marky matches the Man in Black’s stone-cold badassitude with fittingly formidable lyricism. Is this rap hopeful destined to become “Bigger than the Northeast, bigger than Maryland, bigger than D.C.?” With the drive and ambition he showcases here, it seems likely. For more from the rising star, check out Journey to Markyland, USA: Rest Stop 2 when it reaches its destination – that is, our front page – on May 12.
