R&B legend Marvin Gaye receives a heartfelt tribute entitled “Marvin” from Raekwon’s seventh solo-masterpiece, The Wild. The track which features Cee-Lo, provides an audio autobiography of the iconic artist while explaining his legacy, personal life, and his tragic death (at the hands of his own father). His record was very much needed and right in time for the anniversary of Marvin Gaye’s birth (April 2nd) and death (April 1st).
“Once I heard the beat, his name kept coming to me (“Marvin” exactly like Cee-Lo’s hook). The beat reminded me of him and it transported me back to that time. It was like his life flashed before me and the words just began spilling out organically” says Raekwon. “Marvin’s music transcended genres and it can speak to anyone, but it especially speaks to those of us who come from the inner-city; poverty, oppression, the good and the bad.”
Celebrate the beautiful like of the late Marvin Gaye by listening to the track “Marvin” below.
