If you’ve been living under a rock, you probably haven’t taken notice of the fact that Atlanta-based artist Marco Plus has cemented himself significantly throughout 2021. It is clear that Plus is not your run-of-the-mill rapper, his work is intentional and pure.
Today marks the release of the “crack music,” a single featuring Marco and fellow Atlanta-based artist Jiggs. The track is accompanied by a slow-paced yet dream-like take on a classic Atlanta street visual. Plus has been consistent from the jump, touting impeccable vocabulary and sentence structure, making his music so entertaining to listen to.
“crack music” is raw yet polished, with a feel-good chorus that packs a lethal message. Marco includes a snippet of “that’s atlanta 4 ya” as the lead off to the visual, a short glimpse at his upcoming project. A promotional type monologue follows and functions as a sort of interlude of the track, leading into a smooth and jazzy southern sound filled with heavy keys that feel almost graceful. Marco and Jiggs blend together effortlessly on “crack music,” and the two spit each others versus bar for bar, something that hints at the level of care and passion behind this track and the coming body of work.
Marco is a wonderful juxtaposition of a next-generation artist, marrying positive and poetic like rhymes with cutthroat punchlines. Keep your eyes out for his upcoming project, we’ve heard that it could be coming in the next few weeks.
