Pros: Escapes the typical “Philly sound” and it works wonders for him.
Cons: Not enough material released yet.
Essential Listening: Official project 800 on the way, but “E&J” goes extra hard. Check out his SoundCloud page in the interim.
The young GrandeMarshall is an artist who’s winning by diverting from the usual sound of Philadelphia. His trunk-rattling, 808-heavy music is energetic and reckless, which probably explains why he opened for A$AP Rocky last month. With his first major release, 800, on the way, this kid is eager to make a name for himself.
The gate is wide open.
