Hartford, CT mainstay Marvalyss is back with his third full-length LP. Following up on last year's Marvis Luther King, Marv once again combines his dope lyricism with deep subject matter.
From the intro skit to the final track "Just Us" (ft. Skyraven The Poet), the project feels like a cohesive story - partly because Sly And The Street Beat produced every soulful beat on it. And it's not just about Marv's life experiences, but a bigger worldview that challenges the listener to examine their own perception of the world.
Notable tracks include "Let Me Know" ft. Profit, the boom-bap head-nodder "At Night", "Devil's Playground" and the profound album opener "Desire".
Some might call this conscious rap, but Marvalyss doesn't fit that mold, or any other mold for that matter. He's been able to create a lane all his own and the title is perfect - this album has depth.
