Raekwon & CeeLo Green Honor Marvin Gaye’s Legacy on “Marvin”

blame it on 2DBZ April 2, 2017

On what would have been Marvin Gaye‘s 78th birthday, rap’s undisputed verbal boxer Chef Raekwon shares an official stream of his The WILD cut “Marvin.”

The sentimental memoir, produced by Frank G, accurately chronicles the legendary soul singer’s life story, and perfectly captures Raekwon’s admiration for the foundation Uncle Marvin laid out for future generations to come.

In an interview with Uproxx, Raekwon shared his reasoning behind showing such high regards to the esteemed Motown legend:

He’s a revolutionist. He’s a writer. He’s a man that came from the bottom, you know? Talking about Detroit. Talking about some of the roughest places in the world. He was a visionary and his music is universal. I like the fact that when music was going through a transition, he had a lot of things on his mind, so he went to go create an album on top of a mountain, something that was totally different from what was going on at that time. Nobody believed in him, but he believed in himself and I kind of feel a little resemblance when it comes to stuff like that.
