Replay or Throw it Away?

“Hell’s kitchen, hot like the oven work. Wanna make it in the Chi? Gotta keep God 1st.”

– The Book of Marq

Today’s “Replay or Throw it Away?” is coming from my hometown; Chicago, IL. After listening to a few of the soundclouds I have received, I decided to go with the artist who made me stop and replay the track. I had to hear his bars more than once.


The Book of Marq’s track SouthSide was pretty dope. One of the singles from his project Spare Time  is a depiction of the things someone from the South Side of Chicago may face on an everyday basis.

 A few bars that will make you say “damn son:”  

“I’m just trying to be the best/so I can go the right way/so I can bring the rest/but instead I grab a vest/cuz they so heartless/they aim it at yo chest/shut down schools/to attack our intellect…”

Enough of the reading, click the link above so you can feel (not hear) the fire I felt. Also, keep an eye out for our interview with this dope artist; it’ll be dropping soon.

Don’t forget to let me know if we should “Replay it or Throw it Away?” and if you know anyone else with some heat (any genre of music), slide it to me so I can check it out. Use, with the artist’s name in the subject line, and a little description of the song with a link to any online platform.
