Are you tired from working everyday to keep water running into your house? You just spent your last penny to keep the lights on? If you got the blues from the all those bills, here’s the tune for you:
Spoken over jazz breaks, this track aims to ease the weight of the 9 to 5 grind reminding you it’s all going to be alright.
Marquel Deljuan brings the heat from Arizona on this vibrant uplifter using his vocal ability as a smooth-toned singer on the chorus. But when he raps, his flow is that of a natural.
Well one clue to his talent might be the fact his father is music producer and rapper Irin “Iroc” Daniels. And the man that raised him is the same man that produced his debut project – Don’t Listen!
“There’s a lot of music I listened to including Lil’ Wayne as well as Erykah Badu and Jill Scott. And I’m feeling Anderson.Paak’s vibe. It’s inspirational,” says Marquel. “But no matter what type of rapper you want to be, just pay homage. Don’t disrespect the legends.”
This debut release from Deljuan features as the soundtrack to the film The System, written and directed by Irin Daniels. The film is a dramatic story that exposes layers of corruption and racial tension within the political, judicial and prison systems and was released this August. Watch out for the father-son pair pushing the boundaries of creative expression with their music and their movies.
