Marquette King, formerly known for his work as an athlete after his years as an all-pro punter in the NFL for teams such as Oakland Raiders and Denver Broncos is now showing the other talents he possess through music. To be successful in any line of entertainment such as sports, music, comedy, etc, you generally have to have a work ethic unlike any other to be successful. As this type of work ethic has helped Marquette with a successful football career, that work ethic is now shining through in all facets with his music career.
As a self-proclaimed pop-hop artists, you can truly feel this blend of pop and hip hop in the single "This Side" that features another strong artist in Annabelle. The beat itself is electric, with bounce, making it easy for a crowd to vibe to reminding me of old Tyga and Kid Ink tracks. This track is ideal for any club to play to really get a crowd moving. Marquette hits this just right with a hook that has plenty of punch to it and also catchy that a crowd can easily get attached and connect to. On the verse, Marquette comes in with a nice smooth flow and hits the pockets of the beat just right. Artists have a tendency to treat their verses and hook the exact same and it can make the song flat and boring. Between the hook, the feature of Annabelle, and the smooth roll on the verse by Marquette, this track is simply, a hit record. There are no misses on this record, as this was clearly made with precision, and accurately delivered. With the talent and skill Marquette has shown to possess, the sky is the limit in his young music career with hit records already being released. We look forward to his upcoming release "Past You".
