After releasing the uplifting summer jam "Bliss" for last week's installment of #MariMondays, Chicago-born Harlem resident Mari returns this week with a snarling cut that will be getting us through the cold months ahead. It's called "Up," and features an impressive NYC spitter by the name of TARO.
Mari produced the track himself. The beat features a less aggressive, more stoned and wacky iteration of the garbage disposal bass Mike WiLL Made-It deployed on "Move That Dope." Despite the beat's vaguely hungover vibe, Mari is not fucking around. "'Mari, like Povich?' No bitch, like po', rich!"
If you're feeling "Up," follow Mari on SoundCloud.
Violence, I don't condone
I put stories in my songs
I got rights to show the wrongs
She got rights to show her thong
