Artist Spotlight


Marcus Smith is a rapper, singer/songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist from Cleveland, OH. In 2021, Smith became one of the first Artists In Residence at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. That same year, he was featured on multi-platinum rapper, Asher Roth’s album ‘The Greenhouse Effect vol. 3’. In June of 2023, Marcus released his sophomore album, ‘Unique Mélange’. The title is a perfect description of the body of work as Marcus pulls influence from many different genres and a range of influences including Gym Class Heroes, Lenny Kravitz, and Childish Gambino. The album’s singles include the UK Garage style “She Don’t Care”, the Alternative Hip-Hop “Day After Day”, “Sandwiches” a Hip-Hop/Rock fusion ode to everyone’s favorite lunch food, and “Coppertone” a tragically beautiful blend of Rap/Rock. Marcus Smith was voted one of the Best Male Vocalists and Best Singer/Songwriters of 2023 by Cleveland Scene Magazine. Marcus Smith performs across the country with his live band The Rapscallions.
