Detroit Heat Part 6: Marv Won — Wayne Fontes

Posted in music by wordlush on February 4, 2010

It’s been awhile since I hit folks with some genuine Detroit Heat — probably because it’s “so cold in the D” at the moment — but it’s definitely time to change that.

For awhile, a lot of people in Detroit have been looking at Marv Won to truly break out and go global. He spent years grinding with the Fat Killaz and isn’t just “cosigned” but rather is legitimately cliqued up with Black Milk, Royce Da 5’9, Guilty Simpson, Invincible, Dwele, and the rest of the D’s upper echelon of MCs. Oh what, you didn’t know Dwele could rap? Anyway, Marv’s rap flow has definitely changed and progressed over the year and some of his best work is strewn across his latest project, Wayne Fontes.

The album is a slight play on words as Wayne Fontes used to be the coach of the Lions back in the Barry Sanders glory days. Right now, the Lions aren’t shit, but Marv on the other hand, is a rapper that folks need to not sleep on.  My favorite cut on this album right now is “Stomp,” a track that just oozes that Detroit 313 struggle. Marv sounds at home on that cut but if Proof (RIP) or Guilty were to get on that song, they’d sound the same way. “Lay it on the Line” and “Mad at Me” (which actually features Dwele rapping) are both album faves as well.

You can stream the entire project for free right here. Cop it for $10 if you feel so inclined.
