Marlon Craft, the 26 year old Hell’s Kitchen native & MC offers an essential mix of new school oxygen and golden era Hip Hop. He made waves in NY’s underground scene showcasing his advanced wordplay and technicality through bar heavy freestyles loaded with poignant messages. In 2019, Marlon released his first single from his debut album, Shallow featuring Dizzy Wright followed by the incendiary track about impacts of institutional racism in America, Gang Shit. Marlon’s debut studio album, Funhouse Mirror came out on June 18, 2019.


Getting his start in Frederickburg, VA, Cane, commonly known as the Don Draper of rap, has built serious momentum over the past few years. Cane appeared on MTV’s RapFix Live as a part of their Get in the Game segment. With Joey Bada$$, Pro Era, and Sway in the studio, he received enormous praise for his visual "Grassroots Tangent". During his appearance, Cane caught the ear of Statik Selektah, which led to multiple collaborations, including a spot on Statik’s album “Lucky 7,” where Cane was alongside the legendary Talib Kweli & Pro Era standout CJ Fly.

Cane has made numerous appearances on SIRIUS XM Shade 45, as well as performing with artists such as Earl Sweatshirt, Rapsody, and headlining at DC’s historic Howard Theatre and The Fillmore. Cane has performed shows at SXSW, and NY hotspots Webster Hall and SOBs. He has also gained the attention of coveted sites such as XXL, The Source, 2DBZ, and more.

Cane has opened for The Lox and Griselda on the East Coast leg of their “Key to Life” tour.

Cane also is the lead vocalist of the hip hop/jazz fusion band, Got My Own Sound, and have performed at legendary venues across the DMV including Blues Alley and The City Winery.

He most recently released a full studio album, “Closer to Nothing” which has been very well-received by the Hip Hop community. Cane has become a prominent fixture in DMV rap.
