MarQ Spekt & Blockhead: Air Pegasus (Le Cadeau) feat. Aesop Rock & Open Mike Eagle

Philly emcee MarQ Spekt and NY producer Blockhead grab Aesop Rock and Open Mike Eagle for an assist on the chill, laid back sounds of “Air Pegasus (Le Cadeau)”. Unfortunately this dope track did not make it in time for the release of their new album JustPlayWitIt, but lucky for you we’re liberating it today as a free download.  Props to Egotripland.com for the premiere! [This is] a track I conceived while I was in Paris earlier this Summer and a fan threw me a bag of weed and said, “Cadeau.” I found out that means “gift” in French, so it made sense to drop this extra piece to the people. – MarQ Spekt If you like what you hear, make sure to cop JustPlayWitIt; available now at all digital and physical retailers. JustPlayWitIt is available now on on iTunes, Bandcamp, DJBooth, and various other online retailers. CDs can be purchased at UGHH, Fat Beats, and many other stores. Read More »

MarQ Spekt & Blockhead: SumOfItsParts [Music Video]

Philly rhymesayer MarQ Spekt and New York beatsmith Blockhead treat us to some visuals for their single “SumOfItsParts” off their new album JustPlayWitIt, which dropped today on HiPNOTT Records. Representing a certain aggression that is lacking in today’s culture, JustPlayWitIt showcases MarQ Spekt‘s bizzarly verbose wordplay over Blockhead‘s dirty yet sophisticated production.  MarQ Spekt throws a little dirt on the game with JustPlayWitIt; as he walks into the current house of Hip Hop, tracks mud on the rug, sits on the couch and puts his soiled boots up on the table. JustPlayWitIt is available now on on iTunes, Bandcamp, DJBooth, and various other online retailers. CDs can be purchased at UGHH, Fat Beats, and many other stores. Video directed by All Work/No Play.
