Oxnard, California, native Marlon D — also known as MD — has become somewhat of a staple on the underground scene. His penchant for wordplay and lack of discernible filler has led him to open up shows for the likes of Guru from Gangstarr, Talib Kweli, Pete Rock, Slum Village, Dilated Peoples, The Alkaholiks, and much more.
“If you’re looking for hard, yet inspirational, real talk bars from a young cat with his finger on the pulse, look no further.”
His latest single, “Top Of The Morning,” has that summertime back-packer knock to it, and MD’s unique cadence is spilling bars centered around his perseverance and love of the game. His new album, Shadow 3 is in its final stages, but for now, check out the new video and catch the vibe.
