Needle Drop: Marc 7, “Sasquatch”

Jurassic 5 MC delivers blue note remix off new solo EP.

You gotta give love to a MC who identifies himself as the Bigfoot of hip hop—seeing himself on the periphery, creeping in the shadows, spinning his own myth… this is not the usual girls, guns, and gusto we have come to expect from the genre.

Los Angeles MC Marc 7 who found success as part of the Jurassic 5 crew, is keen on putting his personal stamp on 2015 which is truly shaping up to be a major year for hip hop releases (Kendrick Lamar’s future funk opus To Pimp a Butterfly just dropped while the Hypem crowd is basically salivating over the release of Kanye West’s forthcoming So Help Me God.) Marc 7’s EP, “When Sounds Attack, Vol. 1” is a slightly more mature mix of tight, soulful beats and gritty samples—a combo that lends credence to 7’s mellow demeanor and sweet spot flow.

The EP’s single, “Sasquatch” has been handed over to mash-up extraordinaire Imperial who reworks the dubstep-tinged original into a ballsy rocker with attitude to spare. The remix certainly gives the subject matter new life and rumbles out of the speakers like the song’s untamed namesake.
