So we already know that the UK has an plethora of talent, some we have not even heard yet, some however have been grinding and putting in the work for a while now, when we talk about the best the usual names come up, Ghetts, Wretch 32, Scorcher, Kano, Klashnekoff, Tinchy Stryder, Wiley, Skepta, JME, I can go on, but in recent times a new wave of artists have come through and have been seeing success in a shorter space of time, could it be because the ones before have made it easier or because they are more talented, I say both.
At the top of this new wave many will say is Chipmunk, an artist who in a short space of time has made it to the top in terms of talent and recognition and i’m sure there will be plenty to follow. However, I raise the question, who is the best group to come up in recent times?
For those that know, well done, as for those that don’t know, allow me to introduce you to Marvell, a trio of equally talented emcees, that are more than just three kids that can rap, Marvell consists of Shocka, Vertex and Double S, individually each one is talented, has a persona of his own, bringing something fresh to the industry.
What I like about them is the fact that they appear so genuine, this is how they are, there three down to earth guys, confident in their ability but appreciative of what they have.
So many times i hear them and think “Yeah Double S is my favourite”, then i’m listening and i’m like, “actually, it’s all about vertex, no wait..shocka”, the best thing is to appreciate what the three bring to the table, each one compliments the other..
..The idea of trying to work out which one is better and then realising that together they’re just a phenomenon. reminds me of another collective known as The Movement, which then brings us to:
The best thing in my opinion about Marvell is that they are three friends that possess a talent and a love to do this, they were not manufactured, they do this from the heart, the love of music and you sense that with their movement as they continue to make a name for themselves in this industry, in a genre where constantly stereotypes are put before the truth, the youth are looked upon in a negative light, these guys are doing something positive, being role-models for the even younger, showing a better path, growing up I never got the help and guidance, always put down, they will get it too but they’ve seen their path and nobody can take them off it, Marvell deserve a lot of respect and deserve more than they get the way that they work, definitely inspiring and motivational!
“Oh No It’s Marvell Again!”
