Listen: Black Man, Walk by @MarcusAriah feat. @neielisrael

I've often wondered to myself why I haven't covered the Brick City emcee on the site yet. Marcus Ariah has the buzz and talent and I was late to the party.

Although I haven't covered him yet I was first introduced to him via his 2014 project, Growth. I remember Mac from JÄNDŌ shot me his Omari T. produced track, Driftin. Let's fast forward. Making A Man is out and kicks off with Black Man, Walk. He begins with a monologue of what it means to be a black man and more specifically his personal experience. It continues with a Neiel Isreal spoken word. Marcus jumps on the second the percussion starts and you can hear the passion behind his voice. I can try to put in into words or I can just let you listen yourself. The full review of the project drops next week. Keep a lookout for now but for now, Black Man Walk below.
