Marc Griffin aka Marc E. Bassy brings a catchy yet inspirational feel to his first single off of his new EP Only The Poet out July 29th. Clearly on the rise to success this rapper will make you want to get up and get something done and reward yourself with a new pack after all is said and done. Griffin has written songs for big hip-hop and RnB artists such as Chris Brown, 2 Chainz, and Wiz Khalifa to name a few. I think focusing on his own music now will be a very beneficial career change. When asked about the song Griffin tells AudibleTreats: “Cigarettes is a song about the choice you have to make as an artist when dealing with romance. It’s very personal to me, I talk about previous lost love and how it is parallel to current love. “Cigarettes” is also about the way that when you truly love something like music there’s always medicine to fill the void that comes with being a person. Music is there for me like cigarettes.” Not only does Griffin lay down some incredible rhymes and metaphors, but also shows off his pipes. A very talented artist indeed, this Bay Area rapper sure does bring a lot to the table and I wish him nothing but success in the future.
