You never know what to expect when you RSVP for an event yet alone a private event. The anticipation can lead to an immense amount of pondering, where you question every possible facet. Who am I going to know there? What’s the vibe going to be like? When should I arrive? Ladies? Those are just some of the questions I thought to myself when I received the address to the secret location for the screening of Marv Mack’s music video How ft. Butter Knife. It was around 10pm when I arrived at the art space in Philadelphia, which hosted a collective of other events including a full concert on the 3rd floor of the venue. (I accidentally stumbled upon the show, thinking that was where Marv’s event was). If, you know anything about Philly, there is always something going on affiliated with it’s music scene. A city filled with plenty of talent, it’s youth are constantly developing, which I believe is going to soon lead to a gold rush, sort of like the 1996 NBA draft. (Allen Iverson, Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, etc.)
After relishing in the concert for about half hour, and coming to a conclusion that the video premiere can’t possibly be in this neon lit room, I headed down to the 2nd floor. There were graffiti double doors at the end of the hallway, which I walked through and soon I spotted the man of the hour Marv Mack. After greeting me, and introducing me to some of the people attending, I recognized I definitely don’t know anyone in this room. But the vibe was chill, a small crowd which packed the studio room we were in, and a few females that would make your head turn.
Once everybody got a few drinks in their system, Marv announced the video. The video which premiered on All Def Digital is an exhibition of Marv Mack’s artistic prevalence. Marv is not just a rapper, but he also is a director, having worked with Curren$y as well as Omelly before. With his single How picking up traction on Philadelphia’s radio station Power 99 it’s perfect timing that this video is now released.
