Marky - Victory Lap

Posted 6 years ago
Tags: Marky
Producer:
Kanye West
Album:
Journey to Markyland, USA: Rest Stop 1

Some tracks really don’t need a lot of explanation (I’m looking at you We Get High), but Marky’s new single Victory Lap has a back story worthy of mention. If the horn-heavy, heavily soul influenced beat on the DMV fast riser’s newest leak sounds a little familiar that’s because it’s a beat from a Through the Wire era Kanye West that Marky’s just now decided to finally unearth. Thankfully, Marky does the quasi-vintage production proud, spitting a slow flow filled with lines promising that no one but God can stop his inevitable ascension to the top of the game: “Yes I feel victorious, God be the glorious, Imma do it big till my name’s bigger than Notorious.” Hey, aim high, right? If he’s running a victory lap now I can only imagine what the celebration will sound like when Marky’s EP Journey to Markyland, USA: Rest Stop 1, the first of three new projects, drops soon. Keep it locked for more.
