Marlon Craft is a rapper and artist from New York City. Born in Hell's Kitchen, son of a jazz musician, Craft's rise is defined by musical variance and New York realism. Fitting hard-hitting social commentary into a diverse set of sounds, Craft's vocal pace matches and enhances mixes of live instrumentation with boom-bap drums at electronic intervals.
It is this contemporary relevancy paired with a deep respect for the history and culture of hip-hop (and its web of influences) that attracted a world-wide fan-base, and a break-out The Tunnel's End debut project, earning #2 on the iTunes hip-hop charts and #8 across all genres in its first week.
At once enigmatic and authentic, with sold out shows and a series of EPs to be released in early 2018, Craft's ascendance is well on its way.
