Today’s deep-dive through Soundcloud resulted in my introduction to the incredible talent of Reaux Marquez. The Nashville, Tennessee native immediately caught my attention when I heard his latest single, “Pass Go.” Comprised of powerful production and gritty bars, Reaux Marquez makes a compelling case for one of my favorite new artist today.

The lively record begins fast and loud with drum-heavy production that lays the foundation for Reaux Marquez’s megaphone-style vocals. Inline with the record’s fast-paced tempo, the Southern rapper wastes no time by jumping headfirst into the record with daring confidence and unapologetic subject matter that urges you to “pick a side / it might be your last.” The compelling, almost revolutionary energy behind this record is heightened by Reaux’s aggressive delivery of bars, seamlessly matching the chaotic yet focused energy set by the production. You can hear the thought put into this record and the subtle nuances that make it great both as a standalone single and as an introductory track into Reaux Marquez’s discography as an artist.

Do not be surprised when you start to see the name Reaux Marquez more and more because this guy has something truly special. This is his third official solo single of 2019, coming on the heels of his previously released single, “Dream.” You can listen to his newest song, “Pass Go,” below, stream it other places here and show him your support by dropping him a follow on Twitter and Instagram.
