MarackMarackHOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (7/19/14) — With great response in just a short year, local hip-hop artist, Marack, sold thousands of copies of his first full-length album, “Wake Up,” which gave him inspiration for his second album.

“We sold about 4,300 CDs in Hopkins County,” said Marack. “I was not able to go anywhere else outside here because I sold out. I wasn’t expecting the great feedback like I did. I can say, ‘I am a Madisonville artist, who did halfway decent.’”

Marack said he was able to pay back his investors and start on his second album.

“This new album is called ‘Eargasm,’” said Marack. “Eargasm basically means anything that stimulates or provokes your mind… something that gets you hyped or something that just gets you through things in general.”

Marack said that since he was able to tell his story in his first album, he’s now looking to fulfill the void in hip-hop, with his second.

“Now that my story has been told,” said Marack, “I feel like I can go in any direction I want to. I want to be able to fulfill that void in hip-hop. There is a lot of that club music going around, which is music that’s not really going to stand out for years to come, but music that is here today and will be forgotten tomorrow.”

hip-hopMarack said he had some help from local talent for this new album.

“I had some help from local talent,” said Marack. “A North Hopkins High School student, Chasity Britt helped me, with a song called, ‘Cruise Control.’ She sings the chorus and the bridge.”

Marack said he guarantees his first single, “I Can’t Worry About It,” will break some necks, and be a crowd favorite.

“The whole purpose of the first single is get heads bobbing, that you almost break your neck,” said Marack. “This new song is basically about anyone who has said anything negative about you. The song is meant to inspire people to say, ‘Look, if you don’t like what I am doing, then walk away… If you’re not going to be here for me, don’t be against me.’”

Marack said ‘Eargasm’ should be out later this fall.

“We will be putting the songs on Reverb Nation,” said Marack. “As far as how many songs that will be on this new album, varies. We are looking between 14 to 16 songs. I will be recording back and forth between Louisville and Nashville. Then after that, we will dress it up and put it out.”

Marack believes it’s important, when writing and performing music, to not waste people’s time, but to be an influence in their everyday life.

“Anything, that you say in music is important,” said Marack. “It will influence someone, so don’t waste anyone’s time with nonsense. Say something that will mean something.”
