A few nights ago, I grabbed my camera and a friend and headed to The Studio at Webster Hall for Marlon Craft's first headlining show. The show was also promoted as an album release party for Marlon Craft's he looked like nothing. I arrived shortly after the doors opened so that I could see the opening acts which there was only one, Brady Watt. Brady played an impressive instrumental set, switching up between his Ableton and bass guitar. During his set he brought up Olamide Faison who blessed the excited crowd with a beautiful song. Shortly after Brady finished, Marlon Craft stepped out and put on one hell of a show. From the second he stepped on stage to the second he left the venue, he had the crowd hyped. The entire front section had their hands up the entire time. The Hells Kitchen (neighborhood in Manhattan in New York City) raised rapper, proved that he is ready to make moves in the industry. His breath control and stage presence was incredible. This young kid is on his way to making a name for himself in the hip-hop world. I'm glad I was there for the special occasion.
