Although there are many reasons to love an artist, at the end of the day, the most important skill for a performer is to entertain.
Hailing from Cleveland Heights, Ohio, rapper, songwriter, and podcaster Marquis Storm has made a career off of his ability to keep audiences enthralled with his expansive creative vision. An earnest performer whose lyrically conscious flow and punchy metaphors capture the imagination and stimulate the senses, this seasoned veteran has been producing and releasing hits relentlessly.
At the highest levels of the music industry, something that separates the artists who’ve each reached the peak of the genre with their creative skills is passion. When everyone’s technical command of their craft has been mastered, passion serves as that little extra something that crosses the divide between listener and artist.
Marquis Storm loves what he does, and that love becomes infectious. Having performed and opened for music giants like Bone Thugs N Harmony, Boldly James, and Three 6 Mafia’s DJ Paul, Storm’s talent and ability have been recognized by peers who’ve reached the absolute peak of their genre.
Interestingly, “Grateful” feels like both an ending and a beginning. Beginning with an intro that evokes old-school soul and a little lofi, lines like “You know we all grateful for something / Until the dust settles, I won’t take nothing less” feel almost cathartic, but when you’ve been the places Storm has been and reached the heights that he’s reached, it’s hard not be.
“Grateful” feels like an acknowledgment of the trials he’s had to overcome to get where he is, but also a celebration that he’s risen above life’s challenges and has set himself up for success for a good while.
On Marquis Storm’s newest release, “Grateful,” he manages to skillfully walk the line between being grateful for all he’s been able to accomplish without becoming complacent.
