A true grassroots, DIY, indie/underground emcee, Marcel balances being a leader in the Baton Rouge scene as he facilitates monthly and quarterly events in his local Hip-Hop community, and a pioneer/ambassador with a serious touring schedule that's led him to stages in every region of the United States, including festivals such as A3C in Atlanta, Georgia, the 2X2 Fest in Columbus, Ohio, Secret Stages in Birmingham, Alabama, and Jackson Indie Music Week in Jackson, Mississippi just to name a few.
Marcel has shared stages with KRS-One, Common, Jay Electronica, Mobb Deep, Run The Jewelz, Kevin Gates, & Slum Village, as well as underground heavyweights like Supastition, Sean Price (R.I.P.), Clear Soul Forces, Blueprint, Locksmith, and MegaRan.
Marcel has always used his platform as an emcee to bring light to social justice issues, from organizing benefits for National World Aids Day, and raising money for the children of Alton Sterling, to speaking on panels and lecturing on the intersection between social justice and Hip-Hop in collegiate and high school classrooms. The husband/father/artist/activist/youth worker’s goal is to use Hip-Hop culture as a conduit to freedom.
