Musician, educator, and activist Marc 2Ray joins the Alchemicast: with Andy Reed talking about how your wordplay, delivery, timing, and cadence are your instrument as a hip-hop artist. Marc uses his music to educate and empower listeners about everyday issues such as social justice, inequality, drug abuse, and tracks like “1915” about the Armenian genocide (of which his grandfather is a survivor) are being used as an educational tool in high school and college curriculums. Marc discusses his songwriting and recording process and his extensive collaboration efforts. He discusses how 9:30 Club holds a special place in his heart through personal experiences with DJ Tommy B, and how his 2020 album, Fresh Air, transformed from being supported through live events to a more digital experience for fans.
