Marcus Latief Scott
Slick Hooks With Natural-Born Swagger…
Prolific emcee and fountain of charisma Marcus Latief Scott exudes confidence with every line on this full-length release. Fresh, sexy House riffs mingle with driving RnB grooves and aggressive Funk motifs in a larger-than-life audio tidal wave; punctuated by tight, glamorous rhymes. Fans of Flo Rida, B. o. B. and Pitbull will no doubt want to rock this self-titled debut when getting pumped up to go out on the town and hit the clubs.
Representing Phoenix hip hop, Marcus Latief Scott hearkens back to the old-school sounds with bombastic bass and a lush vocalscape, courtesy of producers John Costello and David Hilker. The first track on the album, “Got Me In A Trance” proudly opens the 2012 summer film Piranha 3DD, while the second cut “Ima Winna” will be featured in a powerful inner-city education drama due in Fall 2012, starring Maggie Gyllenhaal, Holly Hunter and Viola Davis (Won’t Back Down). Scott’s music can be heard all over TV networks, on shows like Blue Mountain State, Access Hollywood, LA Ink and more.
