Marco Pavé – “Cake”| @KingOfMarco

Memphis Native, Marco Pavé releases the visual to his latest single, “Cake”

Marco Pavé  is Project Pat meets KRS-One, spitting an urban country consciousness with a confidence that could only emerge from a Muslim millennial in North Memphis.
A rapper and songwriter, Marco Pavé  appeals to a diversity of rap enthusiasts, from purists to radio lovers to hipsters, with a soulful, relevant style of hip-hop storytelling and community engagement that appeals to racially and geographically diverse millennial audiences. Marco’s lyrics paint pictures of issues fans agree are distressing and all too common in today’s society and he uses his experiences to encourage others like him to
persevere. As a sought-after public speaker in community and university contexts, he lectures on hip-hop and conducts workshops on hip-hop and social justice.

Over the past two years, Marco Pavé has built a solid profile as an artist and independent voice in hip-hop. In 2014, he released his first mixtape, Obscure Reality, which was positively reviewed on several blogs. Based on his incredible live performances and the early positive reception of his mixtape, he was invited to perform at SXSW. In addition to that, he was invited to Los Angeles to record an EP with Grammy-nominated producer Haskel Jackson, and loyal fans donated over $3,000 to send Marco to LA for the project. While in LA, Marco made connections that led to collaborations with Memphis native and prolific Grammy-winning producer, Carlos Broady and Grammy-winning engineer James Hunt.

Back in November 2015, Radio Rahim Music released Marco’s current project, the EP Perception. The EP gained attention from nationally recognized online publications including The Source, Soul Train, and AllHipHop, and more. Hip Hop scholar Mark Anthony Neal featured work from the EP on his blog, NewBlackMan.
Beyond Internet buzz, Marco Pavé  has enjoyed marked success on college radio, with Perception debuting at #24 on the College Music Journal (CMJ) charts and reaching the #4 position by its third week. Over 90 stations from Canada to the USA have picked up the EP; which was named one of the top ten albums in Memphis music by The Commercial Appeal, the paper of record for the city.
