- Artist: Marion Write
- Track: Fade Away
- Producer: SB
- Album: Black Gold
Marion Write's last feature, Light It Up, saw the Vegas representative reflecting on life, death and the hustle through a dreamy haze of weed smoke. As you might have guessed from the title, the newly-released Fade Away deals with similar topics, but the tone is considerably more downbeat. OK, “downbeat” is a vast understatement, given that Write ends his final verse by putting a pistol in his mouth and pulling the trigger. Despite the depressive vibe, though, the record is a listening experience not to be missed, thanks to the artist's ever-impressive lyricism and beatsmith SB's jazzy, atmospheric production. Black Gold is slated to drop September 18. In the meantime, of course, we'll keep you supplied with the latest singles.
