Today we are excited to bring you a brand new full length album from MARRICE ANTHONY. LMTFA (stands for LEAVE ME THE FUCK ALONE) is one of the most remarkable albums that TAHRC has had the good fortune to release, and it cements MA as TAHRC’s most prolific lyricist.
The new album is composed around MARRICE‘s experience of coming to terms with disillusionment at the state of life and hip-hop, and it follows him through a sonic self-examination; he pushed himself to write from the heart, and ended up writing and recording the entire album in a week’s time. TAHRC has worked with MA on 6 of his total 16 albums, but never have we been offered up such a true slice of what is at the center of all that work – a desire to make what is important to you happen, no matter what the cost. This record is really showcasing MA at the top of his game – and catches him reflecting on what that means, after so many years of striving to make music that he loves.
The release of the album comes as MARRICE is gearing up to do some solo touring in the Midwest and beyond – he’s refocusing his efforts on traveling and performing as much as he can. TAHRC will be helping him put together dates all through this fall/winter in support of the new album. Especially in the KS/OK/MO/NE/CO areas, if you want to have MA come perform in your town, please contact him HERE for booking inquiries.
I don’t need to tell those of you who have heard MARRICE rap how incredible the man is, and his music is ALL completely sold out, which speaks volumes about his creative output. But really – LMTFA is MA‘s finest album; well crafted, conscientious hip hop music that invites everyone in as much as it confronts the desire to shut everyone out. You can preorder the album by clicking HERE to purchase a copy, and you can stream the first and last tracks from LMTFA via our Soundcloud below.
