MarQ Spekt – ‘2 Cents’
Funny story is that ‘Spekt is mah dude just on some comic book, sneaker fiends, ‘Lo lifestyle shit.
He told me that he rapped once upon a time, but he NEVER got at me like, “yo DP peep this shit!” type shit.
When I go to Atlanta I holla at ‘Spekt to help me get around the town on some shadow warrior shit. I stay low key and just hit up the SB shops and the what not, blow some trees and talk about the next move. ‘Spekt is a like mind in that he comes from a similar place in his love for the culture. He understands that we live a total lifestyle in this Hip-Hop. It’s deeper than rap.
I got a pack in the mail the other day and I saw it was from ‘Spekt. Between him, DirtyJerz, ADB and JaiSlayer I have to humbly say that I love these brothers like my own brother. No [ll] button required. If I’m in a spot with no wiggle room I can get at these brothers to help me get my shit right and that is real talk. I opened the pack and saw that ‘Spekt had peaced me these vintage MF Doom stickers along with two(2) copies of his CD ‘Pretty Weapons’.
I’m glad he gave me that second disk because he knows how much I love to keep shit mint condition in the wrapper. Do you see that cover art? That is like Vaughn Bode x P-Funk’s Pedro Bell x Dirty Pair. Talk about finding a nigga’s wheelhouse?!? I would wear the ‘Pretty Weapons’ tee for a week str8. The music on the disk matches the cover art. Back to the future rhymes. No skinny jeans rap, but still emo and passionate. You better wear your Kevlar-coated kicks if you gonna step in the arena with ‘Spekt.
MarQ Spekt – ‘Armor Truck Rap’
I like how ‘Spekt approaches his art. It’s the same way that I write this weblog. This content isn’t for the masses, but for those that are ready for something different, something next. I don’t do a whole lot of promo for this page. The people that come to this site are here for a reason deeper than some trendy mainstream shit. MarQ Spekt raps the same way. He ain’t out to come looking for you. You gotta find him in the cut. Maybe then you might be ready for his shit.
Keep your eyes out for more grilch from my dude…
