What would you expect from MarQ Spekt? Do you know who he is? No? Then welcome yourself to him and his music. The song was produced by Deacon The Villain of Cunninlynguists, who was also nice enough to include himself within the track too and the tune (that was the third word I used to describe this composition, now that’s a fourth) is called “Shangri-La”, which is ready to entice and delight anyone within the vicinity of its sound. The number (and that’s a fifth) is from his latest album The Grilchy Era, which you can check out below via Bandcamp.
No, this is not a reference to The Moody Blues album, but Days of Future Past is a brand new product from Willie Green, and this one is packed with some nice tracks and beat excursions, a total of 38 songs in total. Whether it’s a view of tracks featuring other rappers or explorations of his beat genius, this is one that serves as a decent street or beat album, but also as a “resume tape” of sorts, including a few gems you might be familiar with, including the great “Diary Of A Dreamer” featuring PremRock.
It’s free for the taking, so stream and listen if you like, and if you really like, download it in the format of your choice.
