Marlon Craft – “Do The Work”

blame it on Shake March 13, 2019

Inequality is man-made.

With his debut album on the horizon (releasing through the good folks at Same Plate), Marlon Craft is back at it with his new single, “Do The Work.”

Focusing on the internal and external work required to combat inequality while being a participant in social change within your respective community, the song was released in collaboration with the launch of an original event series, WORKWEEK, which combines music and culture with social engagement.

“My generation often feels vocal in passion yet stunted in action,” Craft says. “My goal with the song and events is to use the power and influence of art to start inspiring change. We want to create impactful results, spark ideas in others and be part of creating more spaces to do the work.”

WORKWEEK will be a series of public events throughout NYC held from March 29-April 3, 2019. Partnering with Craft’s OUR.S arts collective are a group of prominent non-profit organizations that include: Nathan Cummings Foundation, Elyse Fox’s Sad Girls Club, Building Beats and the New York Legal Assistance Group. Each organization will have a day dedicated to their respective social issue touching on topics such as: mental health within hip hop, youth and the music industry and learning your legal rights within the justice system.
