As you vibe with his likable old school style that has you remembering those classic 80’s hip-hop tracks made with that everlasting love, Marquis Storm looks for the real meaning in this fake world that needs changing on ‘Proof‘.
Marquis Storm is a skillful Cleveland Heights, Ohio, USA-based hip-hop artist. He makes that relevant music that actually means something and is very involved with the black voters matter movement, whilst also studying in the hugely important mental health field.
You get into the enjoyable beat so quickly here on this simple, but effective track made with so much respect for his local community. A feeling of self-awareness to what normal people want to hear is brought to the table here, far from the cheap raps that are full of noise without substance.
‘Proof‘ from the talented Cleveland Heights, Ohio rapper Marquis Storm, opens up the page into his impressive book of rhymes that seems to be forgotten sometimes in this quick-swipe, forget-too-fast kind of world that needs to slow down. This is the story of wanting to know what is really going down — away from the stories that are often made out of cotton candy — and so easily forgettable.
When you turn this track up, you just know that you have heard that real hip-hop with so much soul to wrap into.
