  • Artist: Marion Write
  • Track: Field of the Dollar
  • Producer: Two3
  • Album: Illustrated Example

There's no doubt about it: our nation's gambling capital has given birth to a hip-hop scene too big, and too dope to simply stay in Vegas. To truly come into its own, however, a town needs to develop a style that couldn't come from anywhere else; so what might the Sin City revolution sound like? Field of the Dollar, the latest feature from reader fave and freestyle series alumMarion Write, offers an intriguing glimpse. Here, FloDeep in-house producer Two3 mans the boards, flipping a sample from jazz bassist Stanley Clarke's Soldier into a beat that'd sound right at home in a smoky lounge. Flowing with confidence over the unconventional instrumental, Write mixes impressionistic reflections on his city's history with vivid narrative rhymes and philosophical musings. “Ask Bugsy Siegel why our city's so evil, jazzy, kilos move throughout the people, everybody tryin' to Scarface, blue suit, peacoat...” Easily one of the most innovative joints I've heard in a minute, Field of the Dollar is set for inclusion on Write's forthcoming Illustrated Example LP, which has yet to receive a release date – keep it locked!
