Hull/Manchester based emcee Marx: alternative hip-hop with a blend of hardcore, witty, socially and politically conscious lyricism. Influences range from rap acts such as Wu-Tang Clan, Das EFX, D12 and Organized Konfusion to heavy rock bands like Black Sabbath, Korn, Deftones and Dead Kennedys.
“Marx’s wordsmithery is impressive, his references rich and varied, painting a vivid picture. He doesn’t rely on the overused genre staples, such as the boasts of material possession or empty success, like many modern rappers who have grown up listening to Gangsta Rap with its idle bigotry and promotion of greed. Real Grass Roots Rappers promote their humanity in its various hues, the trials and tribulations of the day to day- like scraping to make ends meet, community and survival. Intentional or not, it makes them far more endearing and far more interesting.” – Luke Goodhand, Voxx Magazine
