When we premiered the debut single from new 6J Recordings signee Sin Marlee, I had a feeling it was about to be the start of something very promising. The silky smooth sample-based beat was torn to shreds by the passionate rhymes of Marlee, and the track quickly became a hit amongst our readers.
We haven't had long to digest his debut effort, as we've had another dope joint dropped onto us in the shape of "King Of Nazareth". This time around, Marlee has enlisted Connecticut beatsmith Foisey behind the boards, and he's not disappointed, with an incredibly laid back beat, with a really silky horn sample in the mix. Marlee tears the beat up once again, with an impeccable flow, matched with some really nice lyricism and clever wordplay thrown in for good measure. All of this is bookended by a thought-enducing Will Smith skit, about becoming your own person, something Marlee believes strongly in.

You can stream the refreshing "King Of Nazareth" above, and as a bonus this week, we were treated to a freestyle from another 6J artist, LaShaun Ellis. The LA native wanted to see how his fans would react, so tweeted out that if he hit 300 retweet's, he would drop a freestyle, with the end product available to stream below.
