Marz Loveloy is a beautiful and multi-talented West Coast-native. Aged only 18 years old, Lovejoy describes herself as a creator, but is best known for her rapping. Much of her output consists of freestyles recorded in her bedroom, but this is the first full track of hers that I’ve come across. Called Dear John Doe, it’s kind of how I imagine a couple of Jill Scott tracks would sound if she had rapped rather than sang. It’s a genuine, sweet exploration of love through the eyes of Marz.
Miles apart from the questionable talent that is Nicki Minaj, Marz seems a lot more unique in style, with a range of soulful influences. She has previously criticised Miss Minaj for her use of sex to sell records saying,
“Personally, I won’t let my daughter listen to Nicki Minaj, I don’t think you want your mom listening to that shit. So let’s try to uplift our people… I’m not only trying to attack her, it’s just every time they talk about female rap, it’s like damn, she’s the only one they can think of. So shout out to all the other females doing their shit.”
It’s refreshing to see a female rapper doing her own thing without feeling the need to resort to sex to gain popularity. It’s also fresh to hear a female discuss love in a rap song, and not heartbreak. So, here’s to Marz Lovejoy, keep up the good work.
