"AthFactor Toasts Local Hip Hop Greats"

Sometimes I dig a little hubris, so lemme tell y’all about rapper Paco Marquez (aka Jack Frost). His newest mixtape, IceGod, came out about a month ago, and it’s jam-packed full of raps about money, Dubai, diamonds, women, Gucci, etc. If you can get past this topical smokescreen that gets laid down by Marquez—and he lays it down heavy—it eventually becomes clear there’s a lotta goofball humor going on. To wit: “I got hella bands on my radar/ I’m never at the skatepark, ’cause I don’t got a helmet/ I’m helpless.” Production-wise, this is all really radio-ready but is more likely to gain a following online à la Lil Pump, Lil Yachty, Lil Xan and 6ix9ine—none of whom Marquez really sounds like, but whose mood, media and overall aesthetic he’s undeniably drawn a kinship with. On the technical front, his flow is solid, and he does a fine job fitting bars comfortably into his beats, but culturally speaking, we’re almost at 14:59 with this kind of stuff, so some moves are needed in order to make a real impression. Anyway, he’s playing the Caledonia Lounge Saturday, Nov. 3 second-to-last on a bill with Kid Arsenic, who is headlining for his EP release. Also on the bill are Caulfield, YOD/BYV, Kxng Blanco, Squalle, Son Zoo, DK, Motorhead2x and J Nolan. Get up to speed with the kid that “love[s] Gucci, money and lean” at - Gordan Lamb
